Visiting Angels Offers Palliative Care for a Seniors' Physical, Emotional, Social, and Spiritual Needs in Fairfield, Trumbull, Westport, and Nearby Cities

By focusing on an elderly's physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs, our Certified Palliative Care for seniors can better their quality of life. In essence, our care programs go beyond the typical notion of holistic care, providing comfort and assistance to all seniors, regardless of life expectancy.

Palliative care and hospice care, though commonly used interchangeably, are two different approaches to care for seniors. Both are quite similar as they generally seek to relieve discomfort and improve the overall quality of life. Nonetheless, hospice care is a term that is usually reserved for those whose lives are nearing the end of their life. While our care, traditionally, refers to assistance for anyone who needs any kind of on-site home care, regardless of their life expectancy. With this care, the focus is on improving comfort and well-being.
