End of Life Care Newton, MA

Our nurse case manager, Joanna Stull, RN, worked for over fourteen years as a hospice nurse with various leading local hospice agencies.  As a result, Visiting Angels of Newton/Canton is often viewed as the provider of choice for private-duty end of life support.  Our caregivers are selected for their empathy and capacity to provide not only the technical skills demanded by hospice patients, but also the emotional support that is critical during this very important period in a family's life.

The end of life is a natural part of our life cycle, yet it is often misunderstood and overlooked in the training process for caregivers and health care providers. Providing end of life care can be uncomfortable not only for the client and family, but also for the caregiver.

Practical care Tips for End of Life was designed to provide caregivers with the information needed to support and assist clients and their families through the end of life process.

An increasing number of people are choosing live their last days at home. While many have arranged for hospice care services, not all have the care they need to remain comfortable at home during their last days.

Whether our client engages hospice services or not, it remains important for our caregivers to understand the end-of-life process so they can best assist with the dignity and respect our client deserves.
