End of Life Care in Albany, NY and Surrounding Areas

When a family member is diagnosed with a limited life expectancy, they often require some form of end of life care. In many cases, care responsibilities fall on close family members. If you find yourself in this position, you might also find that you don’t have the physical or emotional wherewithal to shoulder these responsibilities all on your own. Visiting Angels can help.

End of life care services can give you, your family, and your loved one the support you need during the final stages of life. Visiting Angels offers assistance through our Life Care Navigation™ collection of senior care services. Our approach is outlined in a program called Practical Care Tips for End of Life. This program was designed to provide caregivers with the information needed to support and assist clients and their families through the end of life process.

Under these guidelines, Visiting Angels offers a client-focused approach to end of life care. Care within this model is centered around your loved one’s comfort and well-being. Caregivers provide non-medical support to help minimize discomfort, assist with personal tasks such as dressing, bathing, and daily hygiene, and offer a comforting presence to alleviate feelings of loneliness, stress, and anxiety.

At the same time, we make sure that family caregivers get the respite and assistance they need. We perform tasks such as meal preparation, laundry, light housekeeping, shopping, and running errands. Our caregivers provide an anchor family caregivers can turn to for moments when they feel overwhelmed, offering emotional support or a helping hand whenever needed.
