Did you know that hospice has been shown to extend the life of seriously ill patients? Not only do we improve quality of life, but there is evidence that hospice care can increase quantity of life as well.
Helping your residents stay home
You bond with your residents. They become like family. When serious illness strikes, we all know your residents will be happier if they can stay in the home you have created for them.
Ways we can work together
Our services can often be the difference between a resident staying in your community or having to transfer out to a medical facility. In particular, we can provide
- pain and symptom management
- bathing and grooming services
- emotional and spiritual support for spouses and family members
- 24/7 telephone access to an on-call nurse
If you would like to explore ways we can work more closely to support your residents in staying at home, give us a call at 800.338.4043 (toll-free). We’d love to work with you!
Resources to help caregivers
A little information goes a long way to giving caregivers the confidence they need. Whether they are family members or members of your staff, consider giving caregivers any of these pertinent articles as a way to support them in keeping your residents comfortable at home.
- Managing Difficult Symptoms
Nonmedical approaches to pain management, trouble breathing, and fatigue, nausea, depression, and anxiety.
- Emotional-Spiritual Issues
Not just for families, these articles help caregivers address grief, find hope, and cope with loss after the passing of a resident.
- Living with Serious Illness
Provide social and emotional insights, as well as practical daily tips for living well with conditions such as cancer, CHF, COPD, or dementia.
