It is a delicate and difficult matter, yet something many must consider when the time comes. Hospice care refers to support for individuals who are facing terminal circumstances. Services that promote comfort and quality of life in the final stages are provided. Facing a hospice situation when it concerns a loved one can be an overwhelming and emotional venture. Your loved one may need varying degrees of care to make them as comfortable as possible. Spending as much quality time as you can, ensuring every need is met and simply being by their side, is more important than ever.
Along with referring in-home caregivers for daily support, we at Aqua Home Care also refer caregivers for families seeking hospice care for their loved one. Whether your loved one is in a nursing home, other care facility or in their own home, a trusted, compassionate caregiver can offer support. Sometimes family members are not always available to be there around the clock, and having someone who can provide companionship during those times can be helpful. Your loved one’s own personal caregiver can be available on your schedule whether during the day or throughout the night. Benefits of an additional, caring hand include having someone who can:
- Sit with your loved one
- Read a book, magazine, or newspaper aloud
- Communicate with family members
- Converse with your loved one
- Take notes
- Be a comforting presence
- Offer companionship
Facing the reality of end-of-life care is an immensely emotional experience. If your loved one is in need of hospice care, Aqua Home Care can find additional support to ensure that someone is always there by their side. This support can also be extended to those who are already receiving in-home care services. In the event of needing hospice care, your personal caregiver can continue to be a familiar presence in your life. With understanding, compassion, supportiveness and gentleness, Aqua Home Care is here for you and your loved one.
