Palliative vs. Hospice Care

It is fairly common to hear people using the terms palliative and hospice care interchangeably. However, in the senior care industry, these are widely regarded as two different types of care.

It is true, though, that palliative and hospice care share certain similarities. The purpose of both types of care is to alleviate discomfort and find ways to improve the patient’s overall quality of life. Now, here’s the difference. Hospice care is almost exclusively reserved for those diagnosed with a terminal illness. On the other hand, palliative services are designed for anyone who requires a comfort-centered approach to care, regardless of their age or life expectancy.

Comforting In-Home Palliative Care Services for Seniors in Westminster, CO and Surrounding Areas

Through our Certified Palliative Care Program, Visiting Angels provides comforting and comprehensive in-home care to seniors in Westminster, Northglenn and Broomfield, CO.

Seniors who live alone may experience feelings of discomfort or loneliness. Fortunately, with Visiting Angels Westminster's Certified Palliative Care Program, we can make independent living easier for your elderly loved one by bringing comfort into their lives. Our program emphasizes a comprehensive approach to in-home care, allowing seniors in our care to feel fulfilled and content while living out their golden years in familiar surroundings.

Our Certified Palliative Care Program is based on the traditional model, which means that we provide our clients with exceptional care and a comforting presence regardless of their medical condition or specific situation. Our mission at Visiting Angels Westminster is to improve the quality of life for all of our clients by providing specialized care and assistance.

How Can the Certified Palliative Care Program Help My Loved One?

Life Care Navigation, a comprehensive collection of senior care services developed by Visiting Angels Westminster, includes this program. End of life care is also included in Life Care Navigation, which is a specialized service for families whose loved one is nearing the end of life.

All of our caregivers are trained through our certification program to provide expert, supportive, and compassionate comfort care and to approach senior clients with a holistic mindset. Our Angel companions – our loving caregivers – are on a mission to restore hope and aid in healing.

To accomplish this, we focus on a wide range of needs. We make every effort to improve the quality of a client's life on all fronts, rather than just meeting their physical needs or completing a set of tasks. We do this by addressing their emotional, social and spiritual needs.

Our caregivers can help your loved one find comfort by:

  • Providing meaningful companionship
  • Identifying signs of distress or discomfort and providing solutions to improve your loved one's well-being
  • Socializing with your loved one
  • Helping your loved one find hope in their life
