It is important to understand the difference between the terms palliative and hospice care, as they are not the same type of care, despite popular belief. They have many similarities and their goal is the same - to alleviate discomfort and improve well-being. However, hospice care is provided to seniors at the end of their lives whereas palliative care is offered to anyone looking for comfort, regardless of life expectancy.
At Visiting Angels, our Certified Palliative Care program is offered through our specialized collection of senior care services called Life Care Navigation. This collection also includes end of life care, which is developed specifically to cater to seniors during the end of life transition.
We have adopted a holistic, senior-centered approach to care from day one in order to help seniors in Hartford, Newington, Southington, and the surrounding Connecticut areas deal with the challenges of aging and restore hope as they grow older. To improve our clients' quality of life, we focus on all their physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs.
We meet the physical needs of older adults by providing non-medical care services to our clients, including meal preparation, housekeeping, medication reminders, personal care, and more.
We meet the emotional needs of older adults by always being compassionate and friendly, offering companionship and doing everything we can to ward off depression, stress, anxiety or loneliness.
We meet the social needs of older adults by nurturing relationships with them and their families and providing meaningful interaction on a day-to-day basis.
We meet the spiritual needs of older adults not just by helping them overcome difficulties that come with age but also by treating each of our clients with the dignity they deserve.
