Visiting Angels' Home Health Aides Offer Certified Palliative Care to Seniors in Gilford, Laconia, Wolfeboro, Moultonborough, and Surrounding Areas

Improve the quality of your loved one’s life by opting for palliative care, designed to address a wide variety of needs. When families hear the term "Palliative Care," they often have a distinct image in their mind. Typically, "hospice care" and "palliative care" are terms used by many interchangeably. Yet, there are several differences between the two services.

While they both have several similarities, palliative and hospice care have slightly differing approaches. Nonetheless, at their very heart, they both revolve around bringing the patient comfort, all while improving quality of life. However, hospice care tends to refer to those seniors who are nearing the end stage of their life. Palliative, traditionally, does not focus on life expectancy per say. Rather, its goal is to give care to increase well-being and comfort.

Our certified palliative care program, part of our assisted living home care, is rooted in the more traditional approach and model of palliative senior care. Our home health aides use essential personal, specialized assistance and care to enrich the quality of life for older adults.

Certified Palliative Care Program

Our mission: to assist with healing and restore hope with our assisted living home care. To do so, our focus takes a broader perspective, care needs that include the emotional physical, spiritual, and social well-being of all patients.
