Hospice and Palliative Care & Caregivers in Sierra Madre, San

Physical and Emotional Support with Hospice and Palliative Care

Experienced Hospice Caregivers for End of Life

Hospice and Palliative Home Care has become a popular alternative of care for Terminally Ill individuals in replacement of life-sustaining hospital treatments that can be painful for your loved one.

The process of death is usually a gradual and gentle one, nature’s way of allowing time for the emotional and spiritual preparations for life’s last great journey. A-1 Home Care Agency offers sympathetic and highly capable hospice caregivers who are experienced all facets of care for a dying patient in areas such as Pasadena, Sierra Madre, San Marino, South Pasadena, Arcadia and other areas of San Gabriel Valley and Los Angeles County. As a family member or spouse, you may be present for your loved one, but feel inexperienced to undertake all care for his/her last days.

You are not alone.

Very few people have experienced death personally and aren’t prepared for the various changes that occur during this process. A-1 Home Care Agency can provide Caregivers, Home Health Care Aides (HCA), and Personal Care Assistants (PCA) who know exactly what to expect and can administer soothing techniques to alleviate common symptoms such as:

  • Fatigue:

This is the most common symptom for dying patients. Described as a persistent, pervasive loss of energy, A-1 Home Care Agency’s hospice caregivers can counsel your loved one for his/her frustration with fatigue. Senior Companions and Elder Care Aides are available on a Live in Care basis or Hourly Care Basis.

  • Loss of Ability to speak:

Experienced Care Givers and Home Helpers can assure family members that a client’s inability to speak does not mean that you should stop communicating with your loved one. Hearing is the last function to go, and family should speak directly to the patient even though he/she cannot respond.

  • Diminished Appetite:

The metabolism changes when preparing for death, slowing down the body’s ability to use food and fluids for energy. Inability to eat is natural and patients should not be forced to consume meals. Many hospice patients enjoy ice chips or juice, which help with dehydration. A-1 Home Care Agency has skilled and professional
Care Aides who provide peace of mind. Caregiving Services include Respite Care, Live-In Care, Elder Care, Cancer Care & Senior Care.

  • Pain Management:

Our Home Care Professionals can supervise pain medication and shift the body to avoid bedsores in bedridden patients. However, when pain cannot be managed by existing medication, a professional must be contacted. A-1 Home Care Agency has Certified Aides and Home Health Aides available on a Short Term Care basis or Long Term Care basis.

  • Emotional changes:

Very often, hospice patients may experience depressions, confusion, increased spirituality, and other emotional changes as they make peace with their death. A-1 Home Care Agency recommends listening patiently to dying loved ones, never rebuffing, or denying any spiritual revelations or visitations your family member has experienced. It is common for the dying to claim interaction with those already dead. Remember that to him/her, all these experiences are absolutely real. A-1 Home Care Agency provide in home care at an affordable rate.
