End of Life Care in Shreveport, LA & Surrounding Areas
Comfort Keepers of Shreveport, LA provides comforting, end of life care for your loved one during this difficult time.
When a family member is diagnosed with limited-life expectancy, he or she often has a strong desire to spend the final days in the comfort of home. However, caring for a loved one at the end of life can be emotionally challenging and physically exhausting.
End of life care, or palliative care, is the care associated with the imminent passing of a loved one. Oftentimes the loved one has been diagnosed with a terminal illness or condition that only gives them a few months left to live. These are incredibly trying times, and family members have to deal with their own difficult emotions as well as providing end of life care for their loved ones. The difficult nature of this situation makes a palliative care provider such as Comfort Keepers a very sensible option.
Comfort Keepers® can support you and your loved one by working with a hospice agency or medical provider to fully meet the family’s care needs. We will help care for the client and help around the house as well as provide the family with emotional and moral support.
