Caregivers Feel Relief Calling Hospice of Orange & Sullivan Counties, Inc.
As one of the leading hospice care providers in the Hudson Valley area, the team at Hospice of Orange & Sullivan Counties, Inc. often helps worried caregivers and loved ones deal with some challenging emotions. Although we know it can be initially difficult for a caregiver or family member to call hospice for their loved one, they often feel relieved that a coordinated team will offer support and listen to their most significant needs.
Although the patient can have trouble coming to terms with their prognosis, the families often struggle with acceptance. Many people also mistakenly see hospice as a service only provided weeks or days before the end of life, but that is not true. Hospice care is available to anyone dealing with a six-month or less prognosis. Accepting that a beloved family member, friend, or community member is months, weeks, or days from the end of life can be challenging to bear. Still, families and patients feel extreme relief once hospice team members provide their loved ones with optimal comfort and contentment.
If you’re feeling helpless and wanting to ensure that your loved one has the best quality of life possible for their time remaining, then hospice is the right call. Hospice organizations can work with a nursing home or work out of the patient’s home, amending our services to the most significant benefit for their loved ones and their families. Hospice also can provide a considerable amount of pain relief. One study conducted by the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society found that hospice patients are twice as likely to receive daily pain treatment than other nursing home patients. Hospice care is focused on providing the highest quality of life for the patient and supporting the patient and their loved ones through a difficult time.
