Palliative Care and Personal Home Care in St. Charles, MO

Visiting Angels Palliative Care and Personal Home Care Improves a Seniors Quality of Life in St. Charles, MO by Focusing on Their Physical, Emotional, Social, and Spiritual Needs

First, let’s define what palliative care is all about. It is care provided to a client to enrich their life in terms of their spiritual, social, emotional, and physical needs. This is different from other types of elderly care because it does take into consideration whether the client is nearing their end of life. Personal home care is provided as long as the client needs it.

Some people interchange hospice care with palliative care, but this should not be the case because these two though may have similarities, but they also are quite different. In contrast, hospice care is about end of life care. At its core, both terms are similar because the focus is on providing care to improve quality of life and relieve discomfort. Palliative care is care that does not depend on life expectancy and is focused on care that encompasses the overall well-being of the client.

With Visiting Angels of St. Charles, the goal is to provide non medical and specialized care to clients to enhance their quality of life.
