Receiving end-of-life support through home hospice is an excellent option for those who have loved ones and helpful neighbors nearby. If you are facing a critical condition or disease, here are four reasons to consider the perks of in-home hospice care over being admitted to a hospice facility.
- Comfort Of Home
- Access To Hospital Supplies & Caregivers
- Personalized Plan
- Support System For Family Members
1. There’s No Place Like Home
Many people who decide to return home for their end-of-life care live longer, and many see better results from their treatments and therapy. Being in a facility means random interruptions during the day and night, while home care teams typically work on a set schedule. An added benefit is being close to your prized belongings, pets, and loved ones who support you during this trying time.
2. You’ll Have A Team Of Caregivers & Resources
Like spending your final days in a medical facility, hospice is a team effort that allows patients to receive quality, personalized care at home. Hospice providers allow patients to share their concerns, thoughts, and needs and typically involve several team members depending on one’s needs.
- A Hospice Physician
- Your Primary Provider
- Nurse Aids
- A Social Worker
- Bereavement Counselors
- Spiritual Care Coordinators
- Physical Therapists
3. Personalized Care Plans
Another benefit of hospice in the home is that you’ll still have access to 24/7 care with a number to call when you need assistance or supplies. Family members also can call for bereavement counseling and help with making final arrangement plans for the patient. The team also ensures that patients have in-home access to supplies.
- Professional-Grade Medical Equipment
- Comfort & Necessary Medications
- Personal Medical & Comfort Supplies
4. Support Services For Family Members
Family members also have opportunities to get the counseling, training, and support they need. Hospice workers focus on patients and those who love and support them during their journey. After all, it takes more than just medical care for a comfortable transition and safe in-home experience during hospice.
