We all leave this Earth sooner or later – that much is true. But even though the end of life is a natural part of our life cycle, it is still so difficult to accept this truth. When a family member is diagnosed with a terminal life expectancy, they need end of life care. This often falls into the responsibility of a close family member.
Being the main caregiver can put a lot of physical and emotional strain especially once you experience the magnitude of tasks needed to care for your loved ones with limited life expectancy.
Some people who are diagnosed with terminal illnesses chose to spend their remaining days at home surrounded by their loved ones. But while they are spending their final days at home, it is crucial that they have access to supportive in-home care during the transition. That is where Visiting Angels Silver Spring can help.
At Visiting Angels, we provide in-home care not only to our clients but also to their immediate family in Silver Spring, MD. Our caregivers will do whatever they can keep your loved ones safe and comfortable as possible. While our end of life program does not involve hospice care, we can work side by side with other care providers who will visit the patient in their homes. But more than provide support to our clients, our caregivers can also give a helping hand to the family whenever they need it.
Our end of life care program comes with the Life Care Navigation program, a collection of in-home care services designed for senior clients with specific care needs. The program is designed to give caregivers with the necessary information that they need to assist their clients and also their families during the entire end of life process.
