But we are also here for you as well

Many families hope to provide the care their loved one needs at home, on their own. But very often for hospice patients, there are complicated medical needs and pain care that can be incredibly difficult and overwhelming for unskilled family members.

It can be overwhelming to handle medications, your loved one’s suffering and instructions from the doctor, while also dealing with your own emotions and grief. It’s okay to admit that you’re overwhelmed, or that you’re afraid of handling hospice care alone.

Your caregiver and other professionals are here to care for your loved one, but they’re also here to provide you and your family with support.

Our caregivers are professionals who provide care to address the medical, emotional, psychological and spiritual needs of your family and your loved one. They’ll help you make the most of this challenging time.
