How Can Palliative Care Provide Comfort for Annapolis-Area Seniors?
At Visiting Angels Annapolis, we train our caregivers with a philosophy of care that focuses on providing palliative care services that are supportive, holistic and comforting.
We design care plans with a mission to provide hope and healing to our clients. Part of our mission is to provide the following services:
- Physical care: We recognize and respond to signs of discomfort so that we can provide the right care to our elderly clients.
- Emotional care: We provide compassionate care to elderly clients who are suffering from depression, anxiety, loneliness or stress.
- Social needs: We help build relationships with our clients and their family by providing friendly companionship.
- Spiritual needs: We help restore hope and peace of mind to their lives so that they can find comfort amidst difficulties.

What's the Difference Between Palliative Care and Hospice Care?
In most cases, palliative care and hospice care are virtually interchangeable. But while both have the same goal – to provide relief from discomfort and improve the overall quality by focusing on the physical, emotional, spiritual and social needs of clients – hospice care is often given to people who are nearing the end of life. Palliative services can be given to anyone who needs comfort, regardless of life expectancy.
At Visiting Angels Annapolis, we focus on providing comfort and restoring hope for our clients throughout Northern Anne Arundel County. Although we do not provide hospice care, our end of life care services can provide compassionate support for seniors and families should your loved one's condition reach the point where they're entering the end of life process. Our caregivers can work alongside hospice care providers in order to give your loved one the comprehensive support they deserve during such a difficult time.
