End of Life Care for Menifee, CA
Learn how end of life care can help seniors and their families navigate this uncertain time.
End of life care helps seniors die with dignity. Each senior's transition from this world is unique, but every senior wants to pass in peace. Sadly, many seniors do not die quickly and painlessly. Instead, too many linger on and experience vast amounts of pain and suffering.
End of life (or hospice) care is a team approach to helping a senior reduce pain and discomfort during their final six months of life while providing necessary social, emotional, and daily living support. With end of life care, seniors can maximize their freedom, independence, and dignity while preparing for their ultimate departure. While many of the components of end of life care are medical and involve doctors, nurses, therapists, social workers, and clergy, there are also many important non-medical elements.
How Does End of Life Care in Menifee, CA Help?
Let's look at a few ways Comfort Keepers helps with the non-medical aspects of end of life care.
Personal Care: As seniors face their final days, they typically receive many visitors. Seniors want to look and feel their best and not just for themselves. They want to ensure that their loved one's final memories of them are pleasant. Comfort Keepers caregivers provide seniors with supports that range from bathing, grooming, and dressing to personal hygiene assistance, toileting care, and eating support.
Stress Reduction: The end of a loved one's life is typically very busy. Combine the vast number of care tasks with high emotions, limited time, and visitors coming and going and stress levels can go through the roof. Comfort Keepers caregivers decrease stress by providing housekeeping and personal care support, preparing meals, and even going shopping or running errands so family members can spend as much time as possible with their loved one.
Family Support: Family members often want to help with a senior's care but don't know where to start. Comfort Keepers caregivers gladly assist family members in providing support, even teaching them the tricks and techniques of great care. Family members can provide as much or as little care as they want and Comfort Keepers caregivers will do the rest. Caregivers are also there to listen, provide a shoulder to cry on, and be a social and emotional support.
