Palliative care, often referred to as end-of-life care or comfort care, is a particular type of home care designed for patients with life-threatening conditions and their families.
Providing care and making sure the patient is comfortable in such a state is the main focus of palliative care, which allows the patient to spend their time with their loved ones and partake in activities that they always wanted to. Palliative hospice care also entails many essential care services, such as assistance with daily living and transportation activities.
Why Choose Palliative Care?
While it can be challenging to accept, there is sometimes a point where we realize we are not going to get better, and we must consider how and where we would like our remaining moments to be. Many people begin to prioritize comfort instead of continuing to stay in the hospital or moving to hospice care. Such decisions aren’t very easy for both seniors and their families. Palliative home care provides comfort to seniors in their own homes, which allows them to spend much needed time with their families. Many seniors prefer to spend time in their homes instead of hospitals, and palliative home care makes this choice by providing highly qualified caregivers and nurses to make sure they get the best possible care while they get to spend time with their loved ones.
