One of the toughest realizations that a family is forced to come to terms with is when a relative is diagnosed with a limited life expectancy or terminal illness. Few families are ever prepared to accept this type of news or make the necessary accommodations that come with this diagnosis. Learning that a relative is terminally ill can put a huge burden on a family, especially if there is no plan in place to deal with this situation.
If you have elderly parents or relatives, we urge you to discuss their end of life plans with them in case they receive a diagnosis of limited life expectancy. Having a plan in place will help ease some of the burden when a relative receives this diagnosis by ensuring that they get the type of care they need right away. At Assisting Hands Home Care, our hospice care services can help families in Lisle, IL with end of life care.
