End of Life Care and Hospice Care.

 

End of life care and hospice care provides emotional and even spiritual support to those who are in their last stages of life due to a terminal illness. Our compassionate professionals will make sure your loved one is properly cared for and comfortable.

Sometimes the comfort of home is what’s needed most.

At one point in time, specifically 1997, a report released by the Institute of Medicine revealed some astonishing findings of end of life care and hospice care in America. Reportedly, people were receiving more aggressive home care than they wished for and enduring untreated physical suffering.

That was just 20 years ago—can you imagine that still being the case today? Thankfully, we’ve come a long way, but there are still issues with the system. The National Institutes of Health reports that more focus must be placed on the non-pain symptoms too, as more than half of U.S. patients at this stage are undertreated.

We understand how hard it is to deal with something like this in the first place. You shouldn’t have to worry about whether your loved one is receiving the best elder home care agency services they deserve and need.

Our professional Life Care Managers will do everything in their power to put these worries to rest. Your loved one deserves to spend their final days in comfort, at ease, and in the familiarity of their own home.

Access to the right services.

A home care assessment helps you understand the specific needs and preferences of your loved one at home. The Life Care Manager then identifies the best options to respect your loved one’s wishes so they can live comfortably at home.
