At San Simeon by the Sound it is our philosophy to affirm life and regard dying as part of the life cycle while approaching life-limiting illnesses in a manner that neither hastens nor postpones passing.
Our dedicated staff provides compassionate care in a dignified manner for people facing life-limiting illness or injury through our team approach to expert medical care, pain management, emotional support and spiritual support.
San Simeon’s caregivers are trained to assist the patient with the emotional, psychosocial and spiritual aspects of passing on as they are comforted in our loving and nurturing environment.
The San Simeon community offers a support system to help the family cope during the patient’s illness and in bereavement, including grief support and referral to counseling services.
Our team guides families on how to care for the patient and will provide short-term care when pain or symptoms become too difficult to manage at home or the caregiver needs respite time. They will also assist families with obtaining necessary medication, supplies and equipment.
