Certified Palliative Care: Non-medical Comfort Care for Seniors in Gastonia, NC

Our Certified Palliative Care Program is designed to provide comprehensive comfort care to seniors in Cramerton, Kings Mountain, Gastonia and surrounding areas of North Carolina

At Visiting Angels, we provide home care services to seniors in Gastonia, NC helping improve their quality of life. We do this by honing in on ways to take care of a seniors’ physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. Many individuals receiving this sort of care have a short life expectancy, so care is focused on providing comfort and helping older adults do everything they wish in this final stage of their life.

Many individuals think of palliative and hospice care as essentially very different. However, both palliative and hospice care have a range of similarities. To begin with, both palliative and hospice care focus on comfort and improving the quality of an individual’s life. The difference is that in hospice care, despite the fact that individuals in both types of care have received a dire diagnosis, individuals are much closer to the end of their lives.

Many individuals in palliative care do not have a terminal diagnosis. However, they do require quite specialized care, most often provided around the clock. As part of our services, we will provide your loved one with comfort care. This is very much at the core of all of our home care services. Our mission is to always help older adults remain in the comfort of their own home without ever compromising their safety.
