Home for the Holidays with Hospice Care
Hospice care provides the best benefit of all: spending the holidays with your family in the comfort of your own home. No matter where you are in the process of needing hospice care, you can always receive hospice benefits from home.
Imagine the loneliness of your loved one in a hospital room, all alone during all of the holiday get-togethers. Instead, you can have them with you to watch the grandchildren sing, let them put their favorite ornaments on the tree, and watch holiday movies together.
Benefits of Hospice During the Holidays
Did you know you do not have to wait until the final days of someone’s life to sign up for hospice care? If your loved one has decided to stop curative treatments and let an illness run its course, sign up for hospice to increase their quality of life as they deal with natural side effects.
Give your loved one the gift of hospice care and enjoy these benefits:
- Time with family pain-free: If your loved one comes home for the holidays, they’ll want to enjoy the time. You can count on the qualified hospice team to make them as comfortable as possible.
- Make lasting memories: Your loved one can spend time at home during the holidays and be in the thick of all the hustle and bustle. Let your kids come home to share artwork or awards they receive. Allow your loved one to share stories from when they were young. Or let them just sit and enjoy watching everyone experience the holiday season.
- Assistance with hygiene and company: The hospice team is ready to assist you with bathing your loved one and can even offer a listening ear when they are feeling lonely.
- Lower stress during the holidays: The holidays can be a stressful time. Instead of putting the caretaking responsibilities on yourself, let a hospice team take care of all the details. You won’t have to remember medication management, change sheets, or have someone home with your loved one at all times. Instead, the hospice team will provide the relief you need.
How can you better assist your loved one as they experience poor health? You can provide them with the most comfort and opportunity to live life to the fullest with what they have left. Hospice care can provide that for you.
Most families of hospice patients wish they had signed up for the service much earlier in the process. Provide your loved one with the comfort they need by improving their quality of life with hospice care. Please contact Bonita Springs Healthcare Services for more information.
