There are no words to express the sadness of a loved one coming to the end of his or her life, but there are ways to make his or her last months comfortable. Hospice care is an approach to end-of-life care that focuses on making the individual as comfortable as possible, often in his or her own home.
- Hospice care provides a safe and nurturing environment. No matter what stage of terminal illness your loved one is experiencing, hospice care can help. The hospice care program at EvergreenChoice consists of physicians, home health aides, massage and physical therapists, and a number of other professionals who work hard to ensure that your loved one feels comfortable and is not suffering from fear or a loss of dignity.
- Hospice helps family members cope and continue with their daily responsibilities. Hospice care can help relieve the heavy burden from you and other family members. While you undoubtedly want to spend as much time with your loved one as possible, your daily responsibilities cannot simply grind to a halt. With hospice care, you can still work or perform important daily tasks without having to worry about whether or not your loved one is cared for.
- Hospice care ensures that your loved one will not suffer. Terminal illness can be painful and stressful, but hospice care can help reduce your loved one’s pain and ensure that he or she is at ease. Hospice care, in addition to providing emotional and spiritual support, also provides pain and symptom management so that your loved one is as comfortable as possible.
