Certified Palliative Care in Lancaster, PA and the Surrounding Area

When an Aging Loved One’s Health Changes in Lancaster, Lititz, Gap, or Nearby City, Certified Palliative Care from Visiting Angels Can Make a Difference

At Visiting Angels of Lancaster, we know there is nothing more important than family. As a loved one begins to age, family members often help with daily needs, and that support structure is so important! Professional support and one-on-one home care can also make a difference in your loved one’s quality of life. We believe that each of our clients deserve the best out of their golden years, and that is why we incorporate palliative techniques into all our essential personal home care services.

The Difference Between Palliative and Hospice Care

While you might hear the terms “hospice care” and “palliative care” used interchangeably, these terms refer to two different types of care. Both focus on pain reduction and an improvement in quality of life. Hospice care is only used at the end of life, while palliative care can be integrated into a care plan for anyone at any age. Palliative techniques can help boost your loved one’s emotional and mental health even as we focus on better physical health, too.

Care Plans that Revolve Around Your Needs

When you work with Visiting Angels of Lancaster, you will coordinate with our team to build a customized care plan that considers your loved one’s specific needs, wants, and preferences. Our palliative care focuses specifically on increasing the comfort and well-being of our clients, especially when your loved one is faced with challenging health, mobility, or ability circumstances. Clients with chronic health conditions or chronic pain can especially benefit from this renewed focus on holistic health.
