Hospice Support Care - professional home care for hospice patients
When a loved one elects to go on hospice, their life changes. And your life changes too. But Sunlife Home Care hospice support care can help you and your loved one through this difficult period.
While hospice staff provide support and comfort, you may find that your loved one still needs many hours of home care each day.
Services that help comfort and support your loved one might include housekeeping and cleaning, shopping and errands, laundry, meal prep and cooking.
Or you may wish a bit of help with grooming and personal hygiene, transfer and ambulation assistance, medication reminders or bowel, catheter and continence help.
Many people seek help coordinating with hospice staff, handling appointments of people coming and going and night time care.
End of life takes a toll on family caregivers
As you go through the hospice period with a loved one, you will be facing many decisions and an emotional roller coaster. You may find you no longer have the time or energy to provide all the care your loved one needs and still take care of yourself too.
And you must care for yourself because your loved one is counting on you.
Caregiving for a spouse can be especially time consuming. Spouse or partner caregivers often spend more than 40 hours a week caregiving.
And Johns Hopkins Medicine reports that hospice seems often used for diseases especially difficult for caregivers – like cancer, kidney disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
