Hospice Helps Keep You Home

Part of the growing older can mean needing more help, especially when dealing with a life-limiting illness. Hospice services provide help to individuals so that they can remain in their home, independent, longer. The hospice team provides private-duty nursing services that provide in-home care – not just at the end of life. Hospices have great expertise at managing people’s care in their own homes. If you or a loved one qualify and meet criteria for hospice care, it can be very beneficial.

It is important for many, whether dealing with health issues themselves, or caring for a loved one who has a medical condition, to remain at home for as long as possible. That is the goal of hospice. Hospice isn’t a place you go, it’s a service. This service is provided to you wherever you call home. CompassionCare works with outside organizations such as personal care aid agencies who can provide extra help and support in addition to what hospice services already provide. These care services can include meal prep, laundry, housekeeping, grocery shopping, and running errands to name a few. 89% of seniors say they would prefer to remain in their homes indefinitely as they age according to a source at AARP.

With hospice, you’re in control. Hospice is centered on palliative care which is the management of pain and symptoms. You decide what type of care you receive and develop a plan of care that fits your unique needs. With this and other health services that you or a loved one may qualify for we can help to ensure that you remain at home.
