Discussing end-of-life care is a delicate, sensitive matter. Having to consider service options for a loved one nearing the end of their life is, understandably, an emotional experience. This type of support refers to care services for individuals who are facing terminal circumstances. During this time, services that promote comfort and quality of life in the final stages of life are provided. Facing a hospice situation when it concerns a loved one can be an overwhelming 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 most important.
Along with referring in-home caregivers who provide daily living assistance, our Aqua Home Care team also refers caregivers for families seeking additional services for loved ones in their final stages of life. 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
- And more
Facing the reality of needing end-of-life care is an immensely emotional experience. If seeking this support for your loved one, we at Aqua Home Care are here to ensure that someone is always by their side. This support can also be extended to those who are already receiving in-home care services. In the event of needing end-of-life care, your personal caregiver can continue to be a familiar presence. With understanding, compassion, supportiveness and gentleness, our Aqua Home Care team is here for you and your loved one.
