Our at home palliative therapy exceeds the traditional scope of these services.

Our caregivers provide care for the client’s physical needs alongside care for their emotional, social, and spiritual well-being.
Out team assist clients so that they can recover in their own home from conditions such as ALS, cancer, or Parkinson's disease. Caregivers aid in making the environment supportive and comforting to help promote hope in the healing process.
What Is Palliative Care?
Visiting Angels palliative care was created to relieve any discomfort or stress that may be related to a serious injury or heath condition so that clients are able to remain in their own home while healing.
Many people refer to this care as hospice care, or end of life care—but there are key differences. Hospice and end of life care are both meant for individuals with a terminal illness, while palliative therapy can be provided regardless of life expectancy.
Palliative care can assist individuals living with:
- Heart Disease
- Kidney Disease
- Alzheimer's Disease
- Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
- Parkinson's Disease
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
- Other serious health conditions
If you are needing end of life care, we have it available alongside our other home care services.
