Home-based hospice care is a good option for seriously ill patients who prefer to live at home at the final stage of life. 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 others who have the specialized knowledge to reduce anxiety for patients and their family members. The actual care provided by aides and nurses generally amounts to about 10 hours or less per week. There are many reasons families need 24/7 hospice care at home to support hospice-delivered care.


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.
