Hospice & Palliative Support Services
The Home Care Support You Need, When You Need It
Griswold Home Care refers professional caregivers to support clients receiving hospice and palliative care services. Palliative care focuses on making a sick person feel comfortable and is not designed to cure an illness. Hospice care is sometimes referred to as end-of-life care and is a type of palliative care for patients who are in the last stages of a serious illness and have opted not to continue with curative treatments. The purpose of hospice support is to focus on comfort, symptom relief, and emotional-spiritual support.
Caregivers offer palliative and hospice support care for clients, whether at home or in a care facility, that allows family members to spend quality time with their loved one. Caregivers can assist with a wide variety of everyday non-medical services, including:
Companionship for the sick individual
Activities of daily living such as bathing, hygiene, and continence care
Providing social interaction
Assistance with home chores

The Benefits of Palliative & Hospice Support Services
Palliative and hospice support services are designed to make your loved one as comfortable as possible, whether in their home or in a care facility. Often, among the doctor's visits, treatments and hard decisions, the awareness that one ultimately deserves to be comfortable can be forgotten. Caregivers want to make sure your loved one’s dignity remains intact and that they have time to enjoy more of what they love, whether that’s hobbies at home or spending precious remaining time with their loved ones. Palliative support can also help you avoid the additional costs that come with prolonged hospital stays.
