CHOOSING HOSPICE

Home-based hospice care is an option for seriously ill patients who prefer to live at home during their final days. With hospice care, the focus of care shifts to the comfort of patients, attending to their emotional needs and spiritual well-being. Usually, the patient will receive care from a team of doctors, nurses and aides who have the specialized knowledge to reduce anxiety for them and for their family. There are many reasons families need 24/7 hospice care at home. The actual hours of care provided by staff of the hospice provider might amount to less than 10 hours a week, so families are often looking for more.

CAN I GET HOSPICE CARE AT HOME FOR CANCER PATIENTS?

Yes, just as care is provided for those with other illnesses, hospice care is an option for cancer patients. Working alongside their other professional teams, Home Helpers caregivers can provide comfort, support, and dignity for the patient and their loved ones.
