Choose Visiting Angels for comforting and supportive end of life care in Rockford, Belvidere, Cherry Valley, Loves Park and nearby cities in Illinois

When the prognosis is terminal, end of life care services offer physical and emotional support for individuals during the final stages of life. Caregivers assist your loved one while supporting your family during this difficult time. Although passing is a natural part of our life cycle, it is very emotionally difficult to say goodbye.

An increasing number of people are choosing to spend their final days at home, so it’s important that families have access to compassionate and supportive end of life care. While our program does not include hospice care, our home care providers can work beside and support the hospice team. At Visiting Angels Rockford, we provide options to help you and your loved one during this tough transition.

Reliable In-Home Care During Life’s Final Stages

With a limited life expectancy, a plan to address pain relief and other symptoms is often required. End of life care at home is a favorable solution. Your loved one can receive care in the privacy of their own home, instead of in a hospital or nursing facility.

Visiting Angels Rockford offers a client-focused, tailored approach. A care coordinator will create a plan designed around your loved one’s unique needs. Caregivers provide not only traditional personal care such as meal preparation, laundry, light housekeeping, shopping and running errands, but also help with more specific tasks including:

  • Minimizing pain and other symptoms
  • Dressing, bathing and daily hygiene
  • Alleviating feelings of loneliness, stress and anxiety
