Palliative & Respite
Respite care is short-term relief for in-home hospice caregivers.
Volunteers provide companionship to the patient and respite for the caregiver, including:
Reading to patients or writing letters
Light housekeeping and meal preparation
Respite care is there to provide short-term relief for families and unpaid care givers who take care of children with developmental delays, or adults who have an intellectual disability, so they can maintain the primary care relationship in the long term.
Palliative care is a type of healthcare that is focused on preventing suffering among patients. Palliative Care is a form of care that is ideal for patients who are in the late stages of a particular disease, such as those who are going through treatment for something curable, or those who are suffering from a chronic disease, along with patients who are nearing the end of their life.
Hospice Care, which is defined as a type of care where the focus is on alleviating the symptoms for terminally ill patients. The modern approaches to hospice care are provided by hospitals and nursing homes for those individuals who have accepted their diagnosis but want to live at home for as long as possible.
We bring compassion and sensitivity to those suffering from a terminal illness. Our caregivers have in-depth experience with hospice care and can attend to your loved one's need during their final days.
