HOSPICE SUPPORT SERVICES

caregivers may be added to care for the activities of daily living

While hospice services can provide palliative and comfort care to the individual and support to the family, caregivers may be added to care for the activities of daily living. It is an added service that is privately paid to give relief to family caregivers whether it’s one hour or 24 hours a day.

Caregivers can coordinate care with hospice so that there is a continuum of care even when hospice is not present.

Services may include:

  • Assist with pain management

  • Personal assistance

  • Relieving family caregivers any time of day

  • Hygiene

  • toileting and bathing on days hospice is not there

  • Assist with pain management

  • notifying hospice when an issue arises such as inadequate pain medications, physical difficulties, medication refill needed, etc

  • fall precaution

  • meal prep and clean up

  • physical assistance

  • coordinating special care instructions with hospice

  • Do not delay. Call us today so we may help during this difficult time. 713.521.2221
