It is difficult to face the reality of an end of life diagnosis, both for the diagnosed and their loved ones. Planning for this process is incredibly strenuous and upsetting for everyone involved.
This burden most often falls to the caregivers of ill or elderly parents, which is why this conversation should occur before your family member receives a limited life expectancy diagnosis. It is never easy to discuss end of life planning, so it is important to be empathetic, but also firm. Be sure that your loved one puts their wishes on paper in order to receive the proper care.
There are many different forms of hospice care available because of the wide variety of medical care that is needed. Many hospice patients with limited life expectancy choose to remain in the familiarity of their own home during their final days.
How We Help
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we are proud to provide clients and families with the option to age comfortably in their homes.
When a loved one receives finite life expectancy, we believe they should have the opportunity to keep their dignity and remain in their own homes during their remaining days, receiving the proper care and surrounded by family members.
