Emotionally, it’s incredibly difficult and challenging when a loved one is coming to the end of their life. You want to make sure they are as comfortable as possible and will receive the end-of-life care that they need. This is why it’s important to consider hospice family care. Following are a few of the benefits when choosing Wings of Hope family hospice care service:
1. Allows Your Loved One to Receive Care in a Familiar Environment
Few people want to spend the end of their lives in a hospital. You want your loved one to be as comfortable as possible, both physically and emotionally. If possible, you want them to have the opportunity to enjoy the comfort of their own home. Allowing your loved one live their last days in a familiar environment not only helps maintain their sense of comfort, but allows them to retain a sense of dignity. However, if your loved one needs serious medical attention 24/7, we also offer comfortable, high quality care at our inpatient hospice facility.
2. Your Loved One Will Receive Expert Care
Our team of nurses are highly skilled and provide personal care that is specially customized to meet your loved ones needs. They will coordinate their medical management, physical health needs, careful observation and other nursing needs. Full-fledged care service is provided around the clock in order to keep your loved one as comfortable as possible.
3. Reduce the Work and Stress for You and Your Family
One of the challenges of caring for a loved one at the end of their life is the amount of work and the stress that comes with it. Allowing a hospice family care service to take care of their health needs means you can focus on spending personal time with them. Our certified nursing assistants will not only assist with the personal care of your loved one, they will also aid with other tasks, such as light housekeeping.
4. Receive Emotional Support for You and Your Family
Although your loved one needs all of the emotional support they can get towards the end of their life, it’s also a difficult situation for you and your family to get through. Our staff of medical social workers can help get through difficult conversations and provide emotional support.
We can even help with living wills and advance directives in order to ensure that the wishes of your loved one are seen through. We also provide bereavement counseling and can connect you and your family to a community of other people going through similar situations.
These are four of the benefits of using our hospice family care services. If a loved one needs end-of-life care, you’ll want to ensure that they receive it from the comfort of their own home with as little suffering as possible.
