One of the biggest mistakes people generally make when it comes to palliative care is that they confuse it with hospice care. Although the two types of care are similar in many ways, they do differ and there are significant differences. Both palliative and hospice care are types of comfort care. however, individuals receiving hospice care are usually in the final stages of their lives. However, palliative services can be for anyone that has advanced care needs, regardless of life expectancy.

How In-Home Palliative Services Can Help

When a loved one has developed a chronic condition, it can negatively affect their well-being. In addition to providing the medical care they need, it's important to also make sure they stay comfortable and content during this time. Relief from physical pain and feelings of isolation or anxiety can make a world of difference for someone suffering from a medical condition.

Many assume that palliative care is best provided in a separate facility. However, this isn't always the best option. Not only can seniors become upset over the idea of having to relocate, but the unfamiliar surroundings can further confuse them and worsen their condition. In-home care has become an increasingly popular option because it allows seniors to get the care they need in comfortable, familiar surroundings they've known for years. With Visiting Angels, you can have peace of mind knowing your loved one will receive the comfort care they need without having to uproot their entire life.
