By working closely with our hospice providers, we offer outstanding hospice and palliative care and family support for those who are facing end-of-life issues. Pain management, social services, bereavement counseling, and spiritual guidance are just some of the services offered through hospice care.
Short-term, respite stays provide caregivers with much-deserved time of their own, enabling them to attend to personal needs and rejuvenate for improved care of their loved one. It also allows the loved one a change of scenery and the opportunity for social interaction. Short-term stays are also a good way to assist individuals with preparing to transition to a long-term stay and may be the best way to support the person’s medical needs.
