Hospice is a difficult word to discuss. Even the word itself brings emotion. In addition to everyday life and its challenges, hearts are crying. What do you do? What are your needs? Where are your resources? Maybe you have agreed to a hospice team, yet you still wonder how you will get through it all.
If the help of a personal assistance agency, such as All-Around Home Health, has been used, the agency can continue to provide services even though a hospice team has been selected. Both have a place at end of life.
While the hospice team is supporting pain relief and focusing on providing the highest quality of life possible to their patient, a personal assistance agency supports routine care, household management, and care needs. Caregivers can be scheduled at the family’s convenience to support normal family routine and the loved one’s needs.
“Glue that Holds it Together”
Caregivers can provide emotional support to a family or a primary family caregiver by listening and helping with household management. The caregiver can be a friend to lean on for support when others are too busy or too burdened. The caregiver, also, can provide companionship and emotional support to the one in Hospice care by providing the comfort of routine care and a listening ear. Comfort, encouragement, listening, personal care, companionship, and home management given by a caring Agency can be the glue that holds life together.
All-Around Home Health can provide caregivers to give the family the extra care and help to help to stay balanced and focused so they can celebrate life with their loved one and make the last days some of the best.
