End of Life Care for Seniors and Families in Gastonia, NC and Surrounding Areas
With end of life care from Visiting Angels, seniors and families in Gastonia, Cramerton and surrounding areas in North Carolina can receive much-needed support during the end of life process
The end of life is a natural part of our life cycle, but that doesn't make it any less difficult when an elderly loved one is living their final days of life. Now that an increasing number of terminally ill seniors are choosing to spend their final days at home rather than a hospice facility, it's important that families in Gaston and Cleveland Counties have access to compassionate and supportive end of life care services. Unfortunately, this aspect of care is often misunderstood or overlooked in the training process for caregivers and health care professionals.
At Visiting Angels Gastonia, we believe that every family should have the comfort care and support services they need during the end of life transition. Through our end of life care services, our caregivers will do all that we can to keep your loved one as comfortable as possible as they make this transition. Although we do not offer hospice services, our caregivers can work alongside your loved one's hospice team in order to provide comprehensive care and support. We will also support you and your family, providing a helping hand whenever you need one.
How Our Caregivers Can Help You and Your Loved One
When a family member is diagnosed with a terminal illness or another condition that results in a limited life expectancy, they often require some form of in-home care. In many cases, family members often assume caregiving responsibilities. If you find yourself in this position, you might also find that it can be challenging to have the emotional wherewithal to shoulder these responsibilities all on your own. Visiting Angels Gastonia can help.
Our end of life care services can give you, your family and your loved one the support you need during such a difficult time. Our approach to home-based care for seniors during the end of life process 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 Gastonia offers a client-focused approach to end of life care. This means our caregivers will focus on your loved one's comfort and well-being. Our essential personal home care services can assist with symptom management, help minimize discomfort, 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. That way, you can focus on spending as much quality time with your loved one as possible while knowing they're receiving the support they need.
