What is Nursing Home Hospice Care, or End of Life Care?
Nursing home hospice care is a specialized, patient-centered type of care that treats the individual, rather than their disease, and focuses on their comfort and quality of life.
Hospice care is commonly referred to as end-of-life care and provides support on several levels – such as medical, pain management, emotional, spiritual, and family guidance – led by a team of healthcare professionals, aids, spiritual leaders, and more.
Within nursing home hospice care, the needs of the patient and family drive the care and activities of the hospice team.
Our Hospice Nursing Home Care Services & Accommodations Include:
- Grief support for family members
- Around the clock pain and symptom management
- Physician care and meetings with family to discuss care plans, questions, and preferences for their loved one
- Social workers to help both the family and patient to understand the diagnosis, treatment, and any challenges that arise during care
- Volunteer help for companionship, errands, and other needs
- 24/7 skilled nursing care and response to patient needs
- Assistance with personal hygiene and skin care
Who is Best Suited for Nursing Home Hospice Care?
Hospice patients are those with a life limiting disease or terminal diagnosis, like cancer, heart disease, COPD, and advanced dementia. Because of their disease, the day-to-day for these individuals can often be very uncomfortable in a multitude of ways – such as physically, emotionally, or spiritually.
Individuals may also experience difficult symptoms, like extreme fatigue, shortness of breath, nausea, and others because of their illness or because of treatments intended to cure the disease.
Nursing home hospice care is for individuals who are seriously ill who have decided to prioritize their quality of life over more treatments. They have decided to ease their pain, discomfort, and distress so they can live the rest of their days to the fullest.
