How End Of Life Care Helps Seniors and Families in the Denver Area

End of life care services from Visiting Angels provides much-needed care and support for both seniors and families in Wheat Ridge, CO

While death is an inevitable part of the human life cycle, end of life is always a tough, challenging time for seniors and their loved ones. However, it can be a bit easier with support. At Visiting Angels, our end of life care services include non-medical care, assistance and comfort for seniors and their families in the Denver area.

We believe that supporting both seniors and their families during the end of life transition is crucial. Through caring for your senior loved one and performing a variety of daily tasks, we also allow your family to spend more quality time with your parent. Basically, end of life care enables you to create more memories with your loved one instead of directing all your energy toward mundane tasks.

How We Support Seniors and Their Families

When a loved one is nearing the end of their life, you may experience a variety of emotions, from disbelief to anger. While dealing with your own feelings, you also need to think about your loved one’s care. You may not have the skills or abilities to properly care for them, which can additionally leave you feeling helpless.

It is important to know that you are not alone in this situation. At Visiting Angels, we provide trained, professional caregivers who have the experience to deliver top-quality end of life care. Our caregivers can help your loved one in a number of ways, including:

  • Being on the lookout for signs of pain or discomfort
  • Making sure they are comfortable while sitting or resting in bed
  • Assisting with personal care tasks like dressing, bathing, and toileting
  • Providing companionship and comfort when the family is not present

What is crucial to keep in mind that a professional caregiver doesn’t have to be in the same room as the senior in order to boost their well-being. Caregivers can also run errands, go shopping, prepare meals, do light housekeeping, and perform a myriad of other tasks to ensure that the client’s every need is met.

These services can be even more significant for the client’s family. Namely, the family doesn’t have to think about routine tasks but can instead dedicate most of their time and attention to their loved one.

It is worth noting that this type of support also enables families to take good care of themselves during this difficult period and not jeopardize their physical and mental health or reach the point of emotional burnout.

It is up to your family to decide whether end of life care is the right option for your loved one, but bear in mind that the assistance provided by a professional during this time can make a real difference. Our caregivers closely work with hospice care providers, so you can rest assured your loved one will have all the support they require during the end of life transition.
