Palliative Care & End of Life Care in Columbia, SC
We can provide comforting, end of life care for your loved one, as well as balance the services of a third party palliative care agency
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, providing 24 hour home care for a loved one at the end of their life can be emotionally challenging and physically exhausting. Comfort Keepers of Columbia, SC can support you and your loved one by working with a hospice agency or palliative care provider to fully meet the family’s end of life 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.
What Is End of Life Care?
End of life services are reserved for those with serious illnesses, chronic diseases, or limited life expectancy. They can be performed inside the comforts of the home or at a nursing facility. The goal of this care is to provide comfort for all parties involved, so every moment can have the most made out of it. If needed, these services can be extended for the family after a loved one has passed.
How Our End of Life Care Can Help Add To Palliative Care
A home health aide can help ease the stress and allow you to take every opportunity you can to be with your loved one. Our services include:
- bathing, dressing, and toileting assistance for your loved one
- light house cleaning
- laundry as needed
- food preparation
- companionship to your loved one so you can get a much-needed break
- a professional relationship with your palliative care provider to balance services
We can also continue to help after a loved one’s passing. Our Comfort Keepers can help families deal with the loss and assist with tasks such as organizing personal items and moving belongings—or just simply being there to listen if family members need to talk and process their grief.
