Hospice & Palliative Support Services
The Home Care Support You Need, When You Need It
Griswold Home Care offers hospice and palliative support for our clients. Palliative care is the type of care that 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 their 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.
We take a simple approach to palliative and hospice support for our patients, whether at home or in a care facility: providing a caregiver who will allow them to spend quality time with their families. Our caregivers can assist with a wide variety of everyday non-medical tasks, including:
- Companionship for the sick individual
- Daily activities like dressing or bathing
- Providing social interaction
- Medication reminders
- Emotional support
- Assistance with home chores
The Benefits of Palliative & Hospice Support
Palliative and hospice support is designed to make your loved one as comfortable as possible, whether that’s in their home or a care facility. Many times, among the doctor's visits and treatments and hard decisions, the recognition that someone 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 time with their loved ones. Palliative support can also help you avoid the additional costs that come with prolonged hospital stays.
