There exists a very large gap in the healthcare community of San Diego as it relates to the care and housing of the terminally ill Medi-Cal or underfunded patient. This has been a persistent problem for years but has recently been exacerbated by two confounding factors: a steady influx of new Medi-Cal patients to the San Diego market as a result of the passage of the Affordable Care act giving greater access to previously uninsured community members; as well as an ever aging population that have become terminally ill but lack sufficient funds or resources to get additional caregiving resources beyond that provided by Hospice. The vision of Comfort Care Villa is to provide a safe living environment for the Medi-Cal or underfunded senior paid for by the established Medi-Cal room and board rate or community funded donations.
