A vital part of hospice services is supporting the caregiver. CompassionCare Hospice is mindful of the caregiver’s physical, emotional, and spiritual health just as we are of our patient’s. If you care for a loved one at home, hospice can ease your burden and offer relief in many ways. It takes courage to be a caregiver, it can be physically and emotionally draining at times. Not knowing what to expect can cause added stress but we are here to support you and your loved one.
Your quality of life is important as well, so we can provide respite care. Your loved one would be treated on an inpatient basis for a time while you get much needed rest or just want a day out to enjoy by yourself. CompassionCare hospice staff will make sure that you’re fully informed and well prepared to care for your loved one to the absolute best of your ability. We teach how to provide medication treatments and our Certified Nursing Assistants help with personal hygiene needs. If needed, in-home physician or nurse practitioner visits can be scheduled too.
