Formerly Optimal Hospice Foundation
About the Foundation
Since 1979 the Optimal Hospice Foundation has been committed to our Mission to ensure hospice care and other compassionate programs are available for families facing a life-limiting illness. Programs include outreach & education, hospice care funding for the uninsured and bereavement support including an annual Kids Camp for children who have experienced the death of a loved one. To fulfill this Mission the Foundation has partnered with Optimal Hospice Care. In 2018, Optimal Hospice Care was purchased by Bristol Hospice and in October of this year all Optimal locations changed their name to Bristol Hospice.
To reflect our continued partnership we are excited to announce that on January 1, 2021 the Optimal Hospice Foundation changed its name to Bristol Hospice Foundation of CA. We will continue to fulfill our Mission, programs, services and events with same team of staff and volunteers. This change allows us to grow and serve more families as we will partner with all California Bristol locations, growing from 8 community office locations to 19.
