According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 1.4 million patients received hospice care in 2015. Most people want to avoid hospitalization during the final months of their lives, but only about a quarter of people receive hospice home care instead of hospice at a facility.
One of the reasons for this is that people are simply unaware that they have a choice, which is why we want to give you a better idea about what to expect from hospice care at home.
Hospice Home Care: What You Can Expect
When someone asks us about hospice care at home for a loved one, we typically meet with them to talk about their needs quickly because time is of the essence. We will discuss with you why hospice at home might be the best option for your situation. When we meet with you, we will develop a plan that fits your needs and wishes. Choosing Granny NANNIES of Miami means that your loved one will get a certified nursing assistant or home health aide who will focus on making things as comfortable as possible during the final moments of life from the comfort of home.
Spending the Last Days at Home
As things progress and your loved one starts to show signs that their final days are getting closer, we will adjust your home care plan as needed. Granny NANNIES offers several different forms of support throughout hospice care, including:
- Family support: emotional and spiritual support for the whole family
- Enhanced quality of life: delivery of compassionate care to ensure that your loved one is comfortable and relaxed
- Symptom management: care that focuses on easing stress and keeping pain to a minimum
- Bereavement support: emotional support during the difficult first stages of grief
Our goal is to make this difficult time as painless as possible for both the patient and their family. When you choose Granny NANNIES, you choose compassionate care and support.
