Although hospice care is typically associated with those with terminal illnesses, in-home hospice care and palliative care may also benefit individuals with serious illnesses and chronic or recurring conditions. While palliative care may require nursing skill, home hospice care can also be administered by professionals with a non-medical background, offering support and assistance to patients, while helping to ease the physical and emotional burden on their families, as well.
If you are weighing whether or not it may be the right time to find hospice care and/or palliative care, Griswold Home Care has compiled a list of resources that may help make your decision clearer and more informed.
