Hospice care is team-oriented care for people with a life-limiting illness or injury, most often called for when there is a life expectancy of six months or less. Hospice care is typically a team approach that includes medical care, pain management, emotional and spiritual support, and support to a dying person's loved ones. A hospice team can include doctors, nurses, home health aides, hospice workers, grief counselors, chaplains and family members.
Home Instead's Senior Homecare Services of Vancouver CAREGivers can be a helpful part of a hospice team caring for your loved one. Our CAREGivers can provide home helper services to provide meals, run errands, and keep the household clean and stocked, allowing family more time with their loved one. CAREGivers can provide companionship and respite care during hours when other team members are resting and recuperating. When needed, our trained CAREGivers can also provide personal care services to relieve family members from this often difficult task.
Our role in hospice care is defined by what you need it to be, and it can be adapted over time to your changing needs. Each situation is unique and we are experienced at “filling in the gaps” that make the hospice team most effective. Our CAREGivers are trained to stay in close communication with the family and can help monitor pain levels and medication intake.
Here are some of the services our hospice support CAREGiversSM can provide:
With your loved one in hospice care, you should be allowed to take off the 'caregiver' badge and simply be the loving daughter, son or grandchild. Our trained, professional CAREGivers enable you to do just that.
