Our compassionate CNAs (Certified Nurse Assistants) and hospice caregivers attend to the physical and emotional needs, providing support and assistance 24 hours a day (including holidays) supplemental to medical hospice services. This type of care is also not reserved for in-home care, and can occur at an individual's residence, rehabilitation centers, hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living or even specialized outpatient clinics. In many instances, private insurance policies, Medicare and Medicaid may also help with some of the expenses.

While hospice support usually centers around addressing end of life challenges, the goal of palliative care is to improve quality of life – both short term and long term. Regardless of the stage of any type of condition or illness, palliative care may be recommended to provide the patient – and loved ones – with the support they need. As the team of specialists works together, curative measures still continue and care focuses more on increasing comfort, relieving pain from symptoms and minimizing the stress that stems from a chronic illness.
While many individuals turn to palliative care when a family member or loved one is diagnosed with a life-threatening or long-lasting illness, the care is also helpful for individuals seeking a cure for a condition. Patients are encouraged to be in complete control of the care plan and voice concerns and preferences. As a result, all family members, caregivers, and physicians devise a plan that is best suited for the needs of the patient.
A physical illness or disease can affect individuals at any stage of life and age. In some cases, the symptoms may be mild, but many disorders can also be life-threatening.
This is why support and care are essential at the onset of any type of discomfort. And, a team effort ensures that you – or a loved one – will navigate chronic conditions in comfort.
