People facing their last days would want to make their moments worthwhile. We at Amavi are there to help them achieve a quality end of life. Our team of trained professionals will provide the best physical, medical, and psychological care that they and their families will need.
What is Hospice Care?
Hospice care is a special kind of care service for patients who are experiencing terminal illnesses. Our goal is to lessen the symptoms and help patients feel more comfortable. We also help their families and loved ones come to terms with their conditions. All so that they have quality time together.
The Benefits of Hospice Care
Getting hospice care is more than just about lessening the pain that a terminally-ill patient is going through. It also helps them and their families have peace of mind by offering the following benefits.
A Familiar Environment
Hospice care lets patients rest in a place they are most comfortable in. Often, this place is in their own homes. We collaborate with your doctors to create a regimen plan that would suit your chosen place of respite.
Personalized Care and Support
Each patient will have their own needs and wants. From having a constant companion to providing their favorite food, our team is ready to help them. We are on call 24/7 letting your family rest in between visits.
Respecting The Patient’s Wishes
Hospice care will help families fulfill their loved ones’ final wishes. Through our help, you don’t have to deal with the extensive procedures in regular hospital settings. You can then focus on those wishes and let your loved ones leave with a sense of fulfillment.
Giving Patients A Sense of Dignity
We help patients meet their final days in the way that they want. Be it not wanting to be constantly hooked up to a machine or handled by medical personnel. We can also grant patient requests not to undergo invasive procedures to prolong their lives.
Hospice care will help families deal with the reality of their loved ones’ imminent passing. Our social workers and chaplains will be there to offer you some guidance. We can also offer bereavement services to help you move on.
When To Start Hospice Care
You should consider getting hospice care when it comes to the point that your loved ones’ treatment can’t cure or control their condition. By getting in touch with us early, we can better provide your loved ones with the right kind of care. They will be at peace knowing that everything is in good hands.
