November is National Hospice Month
ovember is National Hospice and
Palliative Care Month and the Southern
California Hospice Foundation (SCHF)
aims to promote education and
awareness of palliative care options for
terminally ill residents in Southern
Coping with a serious or life-limiting illness is
not easy. In fact, it might be the most difficult work
you’ll ever do. Making doctors’ appointments and
hospital visits, navigating the maze of care needs
and figuring out insurance coverage, all in
addition to taking care of your family, can indeed
be overwhelming. SCHF wants the community to
know that there is help.
When a cure is not possible, hospice provides
expert pain management, symptom control,
psycho-social support and spiritual care to
patients and families through an interdisciplinary
team of medical professionals. All the necessary
medicines and equipment needed to keep a
patient comfortable can be brought right to the
home, which is where most people would like to
be if at all possible.
Palliative care brings these same skilled
services earlier in the course of an illness and can be provided along with other
treatments a patient may want to pursue, such as radiation or chemotherapy.
In fact, more than 1.5 million people with a life-limiting illness receive help from the
nation’s hospice and palliative care providers every single year. SCHF is here to help
with information surrounding end-of-life issues and the benefits provided by the loving
care of hospice.
Common Misconceptions Regarding Hospice
Hospice is a place where people go to die.
When most individuals think of hospice, they think of a place where people go to die.
Many imagine terminally ill patients who require constant care as well as pain
medication. However, hospice is not designed to hasten death or “help” someone die,
but rather to help patients live the remainder of their lives as fully as possible,
providing comfort, dignity and support. We often hear from our families that they wish
they would had known about hospice sooner, as hospice provides a wide range of
services to the family and patient that maximize the quality of life. Early hospice
referrals are encouraged so that patients and their families can receive all the benefits
of hospice care.
Families are not able to care for people with
life limiting illnesses.
Family members are encouraged, supported
and trained by hospice professionals to care for
their loved ones. Hospice staff is on-call to the
patient and their families 24 hours a day, seven
days a week, to help family and friends care for
their loved ones.
Quality care at the end-of-life is very
Medicare beneficiaries pay little or nothing for
hospice. For those ineligible for Medicare, most
insurance plans, HMOs and managed care plans
cover hospice care.
Hospice is just for the elderly.
Hospice is for anyone facing a life-limiting
illness, regardless of age.
After the patient’s death, hospice care ends.
Bereavement services and grief support are
available to family members for up to one year
after the death of a patient.
The Southern California Hospice Foundation
will be active throughout the month of November,
reaching out to raise awareness and discuss the
unique system of support hospice can provide.
Light Up a Life for the Holidays
We would like to invite you to be a part of our mission. The holiday season is here, and
SCHF is having a “Light Up a Life” event where donations are made “in memory of” or
“in honor of” a loved one or friend.
A Christmas tree will be set-up in hospice offices from December 1 to December 30.
When you make a donation of any amount “in memory of” or “in honor of” a loved one or
friend, a light will be turned on with a card attached naming the person being honored or
It is our sincere hope that by Christmas, the tree will be ablaze with lights, illuminating
the work that Hospice does to bring comfort and peace to the terminally ill. We will light a
white light “in memory of,” a red light “in honor of,” or a blue light for those who have
served in our military.
To become involved, please contact us at 877.661.0087 or visit us at (Nonprofit Tax ID: #04-3720198).

Fly with your entire family in complete comfort and style.
Escape to the Snow in Style
ou are among the many Orange County Business Journal readers who worked
hard all year. You spent 2012 focused on the business at hand and ensured your
business grew and prospered in an ever-challenging economic environment. You
spent extra hours at the office and committed to a variety of company
engagements. Now it’s time to reward yourself and your loved ones with some
personal time.
Some 84 million Americans are eager to escape the daily grind and travel this holiday
season, up seven percent from last year, according to recent data from the American
Express Spending & Saving Tracker. However, the spike in demand drives airlines to
increase airline ticket prices and additional fees. If
you want to check extra luggage for your
vacation, you will pay for it! Plus, families find it’s
increasingly difficult to book seats together
aboard overcrowded flights. The American
Express survey found “travelers will spend more
on holiday travel this year: $65 billion or about
$773 per person, up from $659 last year. (This
includes airfare and other travel expenses.)” High
prices, inconvenient delays and uncomfortable flights are among the numerous frustrations
that often deter holiday travelers from airlines.
Before you cram your family in a 1986 Chrysler Lebaron Town and Country and hit the
road Planes, Trains and Automobiles style, explore private charter options. Last year, West
Coast Charters flew families to a variety of ski and snowboard destinations including Sun
Valley, Aspen, Mammoth and Tahoe for healthy dose of family time and much needed R&R.
West Coast Charters offers luxury and first-class comfort to start your vacation the minute
you board. With room for your entire family, their luggage and skis, you avoid excess
charges for additional baggage and preferred seating arrangements. West Coast Charters
affords you complete control, flexibility and privacy. You choose the aircraft, the destination,
the departure time and even the catering menu, we do the rest!
This year, avoid crowded airline terminals and excessive airline prices. Instead, put your
hard-earned money towards an unmatched flight experience provided by West Coast
Charters. At West Coast Charters we believe it’s not just about a mode of travel, but rather
an experience, an event, something memorable to share with colleagues, family and
friends. We set out to make each flight a pleasurable, stress-free experience. Anybody can
put together a fleet of aircraft. It takes passion for the industry and a lifetime of experience
to provide a reliable end-to-end solution in a comfortable, relaxed environment. Whether
you’re flying for business or pleasure, every detail is taken care of. Once you experience it,

WorldBed Launches
�Project Beds for America’ in Orange
County, Promotes Holiday Giving
he holidays, synonymous with giving, is a time for shoppers to open up their
hearts and wallets to those less fortunate. And it is no surprise that consumers
are expecting companies to do the same.
Santa Ana-based,
WorldBed Inc., is the most
recent example of a charity tapping the
business community to maximize
charitable gift-giving. The international
nonprofit that produces and distributes
anti-bacterial, bug- and waterproof
mattresses to disaster relief efforts, is
bringing its Project Beds for America program to Orange County. Following a successful
launch in Las Vegas earlier this year, the
initiative is an effort to provide beds, dubbed
ShelterBeds, to local homeless shelters.
“We want to serve our community and
provide a comfortable bed and a healthy
night’s sleep to our neighbors in need,” said
WorldBed President Laura Castro. “Our
domestic initiative is a great opportunity for
businesses to get involved on a hyper-local
level and make a visible impact now.”
Local Homeless Shelters
WorldBed’s goal is to donate 200 shelter
beds to transitional homes that will provide
relief for an estimated 4,000 homeless
individuals in Orange County this holiday
season. They are partnering with OC-based
charity, Giving Children Hope on a
motel/homeless children program and also
working with Union Rescue Mission Los
For companies looking to align with a
global charity that has local reach,
WorldBed is offering a measurable,
corporate social responsibility store
program, as well as an opportunity to set-up
an employee fundraising project, or make a
nontaxable monetary or in-kind donation.
“We understand that for a company to
have a social impact, there must also be a
business return,” said Castro. “Giving for a
purpose is not enough. Campaigns must
demonstrate results for the brand and
Corporate giving must also resonate with
customers. According to the Cone/Roper
Benchmark Survey of Cause Related
Marketing, 80 percent of adults say that
companies who support causes win their
trust and that 78 percent of adults said they
would be more likely to buy a product
associated with a cause.
WorldBed supports numerous nonprofits
and non-governmental organizations,
including World Vision, Salvation Army,
C.A.R.E. and Giving Children Hope to
maximize results against a well-defined
Hurricane Sandy
Currently, WorldBed is servicing
Hurricane Sandy victims as part of its
ongoing worldwide disaster relief efforts. It’s
raising funds to distribute beds to families
who have been displaced by the super
storm that hit the eastern seaboard on
October 29, 2012. Since its inception,
WorldBed has donated beds to Katrina,
Haiti, Japan, Africa and Libya.
