With in-home end of life care from Visiting Angels, seniors and families in Jenkintown, Ambler, Abington, Philadelphia and surrounding communities in Eastern Montgomery County can get the care and support they need

All of our loved ones have undoubtedly led completely fulfilling lives. No matter your relationship with your elderly parent or relative, or if you assumed the role of their personal caregiver, experiencing them going through the end of life process will always be difficult. If your love one is in the final stages of their life, you may be looking for proper end of life care in Eastern Montgomery County. The silver lining in this difficult time, however, is that fact that with Visiting Angels Jenkintown, this process may be a bit less painful for you and your loved one.

How Does Visiting Angels Provide End of Life Care?

We are professional caregivers that have seen countless older adults through this process and will help your loved one find their way and help you sleep if only a bit easier knowing they are getting all the care they need at this time. Like we said, this process is never easy, but we have helped many families navigate this difficult time and will do the same for you.

One big mistake many individuals make when looking for proper in-home care for their senior parent is that they only focus on the care their love one will receive. While looking after the senior in their final days is incredibly important, family members and their loved ones need support as well. This cannot be overlooked. When your loved one is in the final stages of their life and eventually passes away, there will be so much you need to take care of that you simply will not be able to. At the same time, you may not have received the training necessary to make sure your loved one is comfortable in their final days. Visiting Angels can help. 

The following are some of the things we can do for your loved one as part of our end of life care program:

  • Extensive monitoring for both pain and discomfort if your loved one is not able to speak;
  • Making sure they are comfortable as they sit or lay down;
  • Help them get dressed, take care of their grooming and bathing. We are also available for toileting and incontinence assistance;
  • We will be there by their side when family members are not able to be;
  • We can work with them to improve their quality of life.

A lot of our end of life care work is behind the scenes. This is where we help with the tasks of everyday living like running errands, doing laundry or preparing meals for both your loved one and family. We do this to ease the stress on your family and help you focus on spending as much time as you can with your loved one.
