Reasons for End of Life Care
This specialized care service is unique among most home care services in that it can have varying length, and the health of recipient is the determining factor. The duration of care begins whenever your loved one needs it, and may last for days to years.
People are considered to be in need of palliative care when their life expectancy is near or under 1 year. This can be caused by advanced onsets of illnesses such as cancer or dementia, or if they have conditions which overlap to cause a low life expectancy. In addition, preexisting conditions that can lead to a sudden crisis can be reasons for end of life care. A condition such as a heart attack, stroke, or a physical accident can also lead to the need for palliative care.
Our ultimate goal with senior care is to provide care and comfort to your loved one and to help families make the most of their limited time together. We help by providing
- Personal care such as bathing, hygiene and toileting assistance
- Lighthouse keeping
- Help with laundry
