If you or a loved one are nearing the end of life due to illness or natural causes you may begin considering how to best approach the end of life with dignity and a sense of closure. Hospice care is usually the logical choice, and yet many seniors or their families hold off on requesting this care due to the misconception that asking for hospice services is tantamount to giving up. It is important to note that the choice to utilize hospice care is not a result of giving up, and that curative treatments can be resumed at any time if you so choose. Comfort Keepers wants to work with you, your family, and any other service providers to ensure you can approach the end of life with satisfaction and a sense of peace.
What exactly is hospice care? Hospice is an essential service for people who have received a terminal diagnosis or those who have decided that curative treatments for a disease or condition are no longer worth continuing. This care usually takes place during the final 6 months of life and is available upon referral from a doctor. Hospice focuses primarily on treating you as a person, rather than any diseases or conditions, through an increased focus on symptom and pain management. The goal is to improve your quality of life on a day-by-day basis. Family members can also take advantage of hospice services with counseling services that can be made available.
