End of Life Care at Home for Families in San Rafael, CA and Surrounding Areas

End of life care at home from Visiting Angels provides in-home physical assistance and emotional support for seniors with limited life expectancy during the end of life transition in San Rafael, Belvedere, Novato, Fairfax and surrounding areas in Marin County, CA

With in-home care services becoming more and more available in Marin County, seniors with terminal illnesses no longer have to go through the end of life transition in a hospice care facility; they can get all the help and support they could possibly need right at home.

To make sure your loved one spends their final months or weeks as comfortably as possible, it is important to choose a reliable, trustworthy home care agency that is up to the task. Care provided at the end of life is often overlooked in the training process, so not many caregivers are qualified to provide it.

At Visiting Angels San Rafael, we know just how difficult this time is for your whole family – and we can help you during this overwhelming transition. We do not offer hospice care, but we can provide end of life care at home together with a hospice team. Another important part of what we do is supporting your family and being there for you whether you need help with a chore or someone to talk to.

What Is End of Life Care at Home and How Does It Benefit Seniors in Marin County?

When a loved one gets an unfavorable prognosis, they often need some type of care to manage the pain and other symptoms. In some cases, family members start acting as caregivers, but it is not uncommon for family care providers to realize they have neither the physical nor emotional strength to cope with all the responsibilities.

Visiting Angels San Rafael can help. With our end of life care at home, your loved one can get all the assistance needed during the final stages of their life. We offer this service through our Life Care Navigation collection of care services, and our compassionate approach is detailed in our Practical Care Tips for End of Life Program, which all our caregivers follow in order to deliver the best care possible.

We can help your loved one with:

  • Reducing pain, discomfort and other symptoms
  • Assistance with personal hygiene like dressing, bathing, toileting and more
  • Alleviating emotions such as stress, anger, depression, fear and others

We also make sure that families and family caregivers get the rest and respite they need throughout this challenging period. We can assist with meal preparation, light housekeeping, laundry, shopping, running errands and other daily tasks. And when families need someone to listen to them, we offer comfort and guidance.
