The time may come in a senior’s life when the focus turns from cure to comfort. If you’re in that situation, Home Instead Senior Care® of Northern Milwaukee can provide support to the hospice care your loved one is receiving.
Hospice Care Support Activities & Benefits
Many people believe home hospice services provide round-the-clock care. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Often, hospice services offer an hour or two of care per day, plus a weekly check-in by a nurse. And some hospice programs won’t accept patients who don’t have a full-time caregiver at home.
In the Northern Milwaukee area, our specially trained hospice support CAREGiversSM can provide companionship, personal care services, and respite care. Here are a few of the services we offer:
- Personal care
- Emotional support
- Reading aloud
- Grooming and dressing
- Linen changes
- Respite for family caregivers
- Mobility and transferring services
As your loved one’s disease progression advances, the requirements for care may also increase to a more advanced level. Home Instead employs CNAs trained and experienced in providing additional care often needed in end-of-life situations. Services required may include:
- Medication administration
- Bedbound care
- Periodic repositioning
- Treatment of bedsores
- Oxygen therapy
At a time like this, you should be allowed to take off the ‘caregiver’ badge and simply be the loving daughter, son, or grandchild. You can have faith our professional caregiving can enable you to do just that.
