Hospice Care Support
At Home Helpers® Home Care, our team of Hospice Support Caregivers can provide the compassionate care needed while family members are able to spend quality time with their loved one.
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 them and for their family. There are many reasons families need 24/7 hospice care at home.
Can I get Hospice care at home for cancer patients?
