End of Life Care: Providing Comfort and Support
When an individual is faced with the final stages of their terminal illness, there are caregivers available to help with the emotional and physical support they need. Caregivers provide end of life care support not only to the individual but also to their family during this difficult time. Regardless of the fact that death is a part of our life cycle, it is never easy to see someone you love go. The majority of people nowadays are choosing to spend their finals day at home, so it is important for families to have access to a compassionate and patient home care provider for end of life care. For some, this process is overlooked or misunderstood during the training process for caregivers and health care providers.
Visiting Angels® provides options for our families during this life transition period. Our care team is trained to keep your loved one as comfortable as possible. We do not provide hospice care but our caregivers work alongside and support your chosen hospice team. Our caregivers also are available to support you and your family during the end-of-life care process, providing a helping hand where it is needed.
What is End of Life Care?
You may be curious about what exactly end of life care is; it is used when a family member is diagnosed with a limited life expectancy illness that often requires some form of care to assist with pain and any other symptoms. End of life care is usually the service that most families decide to go with. Without assistance, the responsibilities fall on close family and friends causing emotional and physical stress, but with a caregiver from Visiting Angels no one has to do it all alone. Visiting Angels provides compassionate caregiving services for you and your family during your loved one’s final stages of life; we offer our dedicated levels of support through our Life Care Navigation™ collection of senior care services. Outlined in our Practical Care Tips for End-of-Life Care is our approach and how caregivers can use these guidelines to support and assist clients and their families. Within these guidelines we express how Visiting Angels offers a client-focused approach—we provide level care from this model to center care around your loved one’s comfort and well-being. Caregivers provide essential personal home care services to help:
- Minimize pain and other symptoms
- Assist with personal tasks such as dressing, bathing, and daily hygiene
- Alleviate feelings of loneliness, stress, and anxiety
Similarly, we also make sure that the family and friend caregivers are also getting the respite and assistance they need. We do tasks to help such as meal preparation, laundry, light housekeeping, shopping, and running errands. Out caregivers provide the shoulder for family caregiver to lean on for the moments that they are overwhelmed, for emotional support or just to be a helpful hand as needed.
