Certified Palliative Care in and Near Schererville, IN

How Visiting Angels' Certified Palliative Care Can Help Your Aging Loved One in Schererville, Crown Point, Valparaiso, Munster, Dyer, or the Surrounding Area

Whether you want to provide care for your terminally ill or recuperating loved one, opting for palliative care is the best thing that you can do for them. Oftentimes, palliative care gets confused with hospice care, but they are two different services. While both are designed to relieve discomfort in patients, hospice is limited to people who are nearing the end of their lives, whereas palliative care is focused on the well-being of patients regardless of their life expectancy.

At Visiting Angels of Schererville, our approach is holistic, focusing on many facets of a person’s life such as their physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. We designed a care program for Schererville and the surrounding area that goes beyond what traditional care provides. Below are the different types of support that our caregivers provide to enrich the lives of our clients.

  • Physical care: Our caregivers are trained to recognize and respond to the signs that are common to elderly patients. They provide non medical care to make them comfortable. Examples of the physical care we provide include hygiene assistance, meal preparation, feeding, mobility, and light housekeeping to name a few.
  • Emotional care: We understand that most senior patients suffer from depression, anxiety, and other forms of mental distress. Our caregivers adopt a compassionate approach when interacting with your loved ones.
  • Social care: Our caregivers can help address the social needs of your loved one by helping them build a relationship with family and friends via technology. Our caregivers provide companionship and conversation so that they can fulfill their social functions.
