The time may come in a senior’s life when the focus turns from cure to comfort. If you’re in that situation, Home Instead Senior Care® of Southwest Florida can provide support to the hospice care your loved one is receiving.
Hospice Care Support Activities & Benefits
Many people believe home hospice services provide round-the-clock care. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Often, hospice services offer an hour or two of care per day, plus a weekly check-in by a nurse. And some hospice programs won’t accept patients who don’t have a full-time caregiver at home.
In the Southwest Florida area, our specially trained hospice support CAREGiversSM can provide companionship, personal care services and respite care. Here are a few of the services we offer:
- Personal care
- Emotional support
- Reading aloud
- Grooming and dressing
- Linen changes
- Respite for family caregivers
At a time like this, you should be allowed to take off the ‘caregiver’ badge and simply be the loving daughter, son or grandchild. You can have faith our professional caregiving can enable you to do just that.
