Palliative Care Support
Comfort Keepers' care plans are tailored to the individual needs of each client. We have extensive experience partnering with medical providers to support palliative care.
What is palliative care?
The goal of palliative care is to help improve the quality of life for patients with advanced or terminal illnesses, usually in conjunction with medical treatment to alleviate pain. This care also addresses the emotional, social and spiritual issues that usually accompany serious illnesses.
How Comfort Keepers Can Help
Our ultimate goal with palliative care is to provide assistance and comfort to maximize quality of life for your loved one and to help families make the most of their time together. We help by providing:
- bathing, dressing, and toileting assistance for your loved one
- light house cleaning
- laundry as needed
- meal preparation
- companionship to your loved one so you can get a much-needed break
- assistance with daily living tasks so your loved one can stay in the home they love
We train our caregivers to demonstrate both compassion and professionalism, providing comforting reassurance during palliative care. Contact us to learn more about how our philosophy and flexible plans of action can be of assistance to you and your family.
