Hospice Care

Hospice Home Care

Hospice Home Care is becoming an increasingly popular alternative of care for Terminally Ill individuals in replacement of life-sustaining hospital treatments that can be painful for your loved one.

The focus of Hospice Home Care revolves around relieving the physical pain and emotional worries that your loved one may be feeling.

We Emphasize Care and Support by Listening

This form of care is unique in the regard that it can take place in the comfort of your loved one’s home, where familiar surroundings and family members can provide an increased level of comfort. At A-1 Home Care Agency, we provide experienced caregivers for Hospice Home Care on a 24 hour Live-In Care or Hourly Care basis.

Death can be incredibly frightening for some Elders and Seniors. With a Hospice Caregiver, your loved one can stay at ease with someone to constantly talk to about their past, spiritual beliefs, family, or whatever else is on their mind. Our caregivers can ensure that your loved one stays comfortable and takes medication as needed for pain, in addition to any other tasks of daily living they may need assistance with.

So many families resist Hospice Care Services.  They feel it means giving up on their loved one.  The truth is Hospice Care provides many important resources to the patient and their family.

Being designated as a “Hospice Patient” enables various health care services, including bereavement and support services, to the entire family. These resources include assistance from Case Managers and Social Workers to help the family find and attain medical supplies, hospital beds and expert legal, spiritual, or financial advisors.  Under Hospice Care, Visiting Nurses are scheduled to administer medications and monitor the patient.

Hospice Care can be provided within any comfortable setting – including at home.

A-1 Home Care Agency understands how difficult it is to care for a terminally ill loved one.  You still have work and other family obligations and responsibilities.  We work with the Hospice Care Team to provide your family the additional, one-on-one Non-Medical Care you need during this traumatic time.  Our Caregivers can provide the companionship your loved one needs, staying by their bedside 24 hours a day.  We can assist with housecleaning, family meals, laundry, toiletry / personal hygiene, on an hourly or 24 hour live in basis.

Many clients who’ve used our home care services for a beloved family member appreciate the care and concern – the emotional and physical support – our caregivers provide to the entire family.

All of our Hospice caregivers, nurse aides, companions, and home helpers must have at least 2 years of prior at home caregiving experience, verifiable professional references, a National Background Check/DMV Check, Tuberculosis testing, Malpractice/Liability insurance, First Aid/CPR training, and a personal interview with our office staff.
