At Visiting Angels of Springfield, we believe families should be able to access the essential home care services they need through the end-of-life process. With our end-of-life care services, our caregivers do as much as possible to keep your loved one comfortable during this transition.
While we do not provide hospice, we do work along with hospice care providers and help support them. We will also provide a helping hand for you and your family whenever it’s needed.
The Differences Between Hospice and End-of-Life Care
In most cases, hospice care is prescribed by a physician who wishes to reduce a terminally ill patient’s suffering and pain during the final days of their life. Both hospice and palliative care seek to alleviate patients’ pain and make them as comfortable as possible.
Visiting Angels of Springfield’s team of elderly care experts is focused on providing holistic care for the entire family. We can assist with tasks around the house so family can spend more time with their loved one during their final days together.
Our In-Home Care Services
End-of-life care services are often needed when a family member is diagnosed with a limited life expectancy. Many times, the responsibility of providing this care falls to close family members. If you’re in this situation, it’s possible you don’t have the physical or emotional ability to do all of this by yourself. Our caregivers can help.
Visiting Angels of Springfield takes a client-focused approach to one-on-one home care. Our model is centered around making sure your loved one is comfortable and cared for.
This can help:
- minimize their discomfort
- help them with personal tasks such as dressing or daily hygiene
- offer them a comforting presence so they don’t feel lonely, stressed, or anxious
While we’re providing these essential home care services, we also make sure the family caregivers get the rest and help they might need.
We offer services such as:
- meal preparation

We work to make sure our caregivers can provide help when family members feel overwhelmed, can offer emotional support, or can offer a helping hand.
