Hospice Care Month
There comes a time in many of our lives when we either take or are given the responsibility of caring for a seriously or terminally ill family member. It's a hard job made harder by our confusing and fragmented healthcare system.
Fortunately, there's an incredible resource in our community that provides comfort, dignity and respect to those coping with a serious or life-limiting illness and their families.
Hospice is unique in that it offers a team approach to treatment that includes expert medical care, comprehensive pain management and emotional and spiritual care. Caring for the whole person allows the team to address each patient's unique needs and challenges. Hospice also offers services for families and loved ones that provide emotional support and advice to help them become confident caregivers and adjust to the future with grief support for up to a year.
Hospices are some of the best providers of community-based palliative care. Palliative care delivers expertise to improve the quality of life and relief from pain. It can be provided at any time during an illness - during and after treatment, from diagnosis on.
The best time to learn about and plan for hospice or palliative care is before you are faced with a medical crisis. One of the most frequent comments we hear from families is, "Why did we wait so long before calling hospice?"
If you or a loved one is facing a serious or life-limiting illness, the time to find out more about hospice and palliative care is right now. We can help. Call us at 410-987-2003.
