A patient’s final days can be very difficult. There may be quite a bit of discomfort that is not only physical but also mental, emotional, and even spiritual. It’s important for those facing the end of their life to have the support they need to overcome this challenging time. Comfort and Peace Hospice provides our patients with the support that they need, and we enable them to pass on in comfort.
For patients that are suffering from a life-limiting illness that choose to no longer receive treatment or have no options left, hospice care is an excellent choice. During this form of care, their needs are met, and they are able to enjoy their final days in comfort. This includes their physical, spiritual, emotional, and psychological needs. Our treatment is designed to help those in their final days to leave this world with dignity and in peace.
What is Hospice Care?
Hospice care is a form of care that helps those with life-limiting illnesses. Patients are provided with physical care, emotional support, therapy, and spiritual care. The goal of any hospice care provider is to empower their patients to enjoy their final days and pass in peace.
With that said, hospice care looks different from patient to patient. Each patient has their own needs. Comfort and Peace tailor our hospice care programs to meet the individual needs of our patients. Some of the different forms of hospice care that we provide include:
- Continuous Care
- Routine Home Care
- Respite Care
- General In-Patient Care
If you are unsure of which level of care is right for your loved one or you, feel free to reach out to Comfort and Peace. We’d be happy to discuss the different levels of care with you and put together a plan to meet the needs of your loved one or you.
Why Hospice Care?
Hospice care helps to provide patients with peace of mind and relieve their burdens. This allows patients to pass on in peace, calm, and happiness. Hospice care providers understand that a patient’s final days can be distressing and difficult. That is why they do everything in their power to ensure a patient is at ease until the end and is able to die with dignity.
If you are the loved one of a patient, you’ll find hospice care is a wonderful resource when it comes to getting the extra support you need. Taking care of a loved one with a life-limiting illness can be extremely difficult. Hospice care is an excellent option for easing the burden and providing you with some additional rest. It also allows you to get caught up on things you may be falling behind on.
There are different types of care, which include inpatient and at-home care. Generally, at-home is the standard care option, but the type of care will depend on the individual needs of the patient. If the patient requires a higher level of care, for instance, inpatient may be the best option until whatever issue is occurring is resolved.
Comfort and Peace Hospice understands passing away looks different for everyone. We treat each and every patient as an individual and put together a custom plan to meet their needs. This includes their emotional, spiritual, physical, and mental needs. We do everything in our power to provide our patients with the highest level of comfort possible, and our specialists are known for their excellent bedside manner. It is our goal to help the patients we care for to pass with dignity, peace, and comfort.
Who is Hospice Care for?
There is a misconception about who hospice care is available for. While some think hospice care is specifically for cancer patients, it is actually available to patients with any kind of life-limiting illness that requires extra support. If you have a loved one that is nearing the end of their life or you are, hospice care may be the perfect option to meet your needs.
To get approved for hospice care, a patient needs to be certified by two physicians. Often, a physician will be the one to suggest hospice care. After it’s been determined that a patient is a good candidate for hospice care, they will need to speak with their insurance provider or Medicare to discuss coverage.
A patient is a good candidate if they have around 6 months left or less. If a patient lives longer than this time period, they may continue to be a candidate for hospice care.
Some common illnesses that patients suffer from that lead to the need for hospice care include:
- Heart disease
- Renal disease
- Pulmonary disease
- Liver disease
- and others
If your loved one or you have been diagnosed with a terminal illness, speak with your physician to see if hospice care is a good option to meet your needs. From there, you can speak with your insurance provider to see if hospice care is covered.
