End of Life Care in Leesburg, VA and the Surrounding Area
If you seek physical and emotional support for a loved one living with a terminal illness, End of life care can be beneficial. Caregivers offer their experience and skills to clients while also supporting the family unit through this challenging time.
While death is natural and part of the life cycle process, it doesn't mean it's not difficult to go through. There has been an increase in the number of seniors choosing to spend their final days surrounded by loved ones in the comfort of their own homes. This is why it is crucial to provide your loved one with compassionate and supportive End of life care and home care services.
Sadly, this aspect of End of life care is often misunderstood or overlooked when training caregivers and health care providers. Visiting Angels Northern Virginia provides different options of care that help clients and their families during this life transition. Our team of caregivers keeps clients safe and comfortable; our program does not include hospice care; however, we do assist and work alongside a provided hospice team. We will also support you and your family, providing a helping hand whenever you need one.
What is End of Life Care?
When your loved one is diagnosed with a limited life expectancy, they will more than likely require some form of specialized care to address pain and other symptoms -- End of life home care is often the most common solution. Often responsibilities fall upon close family and friends-- if this is where you are at, you should know that you don't have to handle it all on your own.
