Four Frequently Asked Questions Concerning Hospice Care
Caring for someone with a terminal illness is not something most people have experience with. Understandably, some people still have questions about hospice care. Here are some frequently asked questions about in-home hospice services and how they can help your loved ones:
Is hospice care only for cancer patients?
No. Hospice care is designed for people with any kind of terminal illnesses who face pain and other symptoms. Your loved ones can receive assistance during their last moments so they can rest and avoid unnecessary pain. However, if your loved ones only need temporary care, then you can contact respite care. We can help you decide which type of in-home care is most appropriate for your loved one and your family’s situation.
Who can benefit from hospice care?
Hospice care is for anyone who needs consistent end of life care that family members can’t provide on their own. For family members, it helps to have an experienced hospice care professional help navigate the uncertainties of caring for someone with a terminal illness.
A caregiver with hospice experience and training can monitor the patient’s safety, provide for their needs and help with daily tasks like meal prep, personal hygiene or picking up medication.
What is the goal of at-home hospice care?
At-home hospice care exists to allow hospice patients to stay with their family while receiving the medication assistance and other help that they need. The hospice worker is an experienced health professional who can monitor your loved one and let you know if there are any changes in their condition. In addition, your loved one still gets to live with their family — a comfort at a very difficult time.
Are hospice and palliative care different from each other?
Hospice and palliative care may seem similar and are often used interchangeably, but they are not exactly the same. Palliative care can begin at the time an illness is diagnosed and is designed to help the patient manage the symptoms of the disease and/or the treatment. It can occur at the same time as treatment. Hospice care, on the other hand, begins at the point when the patient has stopped treatment and it is clear that the disease or condition is not survivable.
