Why might you choose hospice care?
Hospice caregivers are dedicated to enhancing your quality of remaining life by keeping you as alert and comfortable as possible in a familiar environment with the support of family and friends. Hospice programs offer services in your own home or in a hospice center, like a respite house, long term care facility, or hospital.
What services are provided?
Hospice services typically include:
Basic medical care with a focus on pain and symptom control with access to your team 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Medical supplies and equipment as needed.
Counseling and social support to help with psychological, emotional and spiritual needs.
Guidance with the difficult, but normal, issues of life completion and closure.
A break (respite care) for caregivers, family, and others who regularly care for you.
Personal Care Attendants who can help with personal care such as bathing and toileting.
Volunteer support, such as preparing meals and running errands.
Counseling and support for your loved ones after you die.
