There’s nothing easy about having a loved one admitted to hospice care.
You want to be there for them. You want to be there every moment, all of them.
Unfortunately, you can’t. It’s just impossible, with your life, your job, and your responsibilities.
That said, your loved ones don’t have to be alone. They don’t have to just be in there in the hospice, or after surgery.
Our professional caregivers can be there right by your loved one’s side.
They can make your loved one’s time in hospice care as comfortable as can be.
In a better world, the medical facility would send a dedicated caregiver to be by your loved one’s side. However, there’s really no facility that can do that. At Caring Angels, our caregivers can make sure your loved ones are properly taken care of.
What Our Caregivers Provide
When we hire hospice caregivers, we look at backgrounds, education, experience, recommendations, and so forth. But, we’re looking for certain people. We look for people that are upbeat, positive, and genuinely fun to be around. Moreover, they have to be able to communicate effectively with seniors.
If your loved ones are in hospice, they’re going to want someone with them who they’ll, well, actually want to be with them. Our caregivers know how to engage in conversation, humor, connection, and more.
That said, they aren’t just there to make your loved ones laugh (although that does happen). They can provide the kind of empathy, compassion, and companionship that’s always so important, but especially so in an environment like a medical hospice.
During all of that, though, it’s important to note that our caregivers are professionals, too. So, while they’re engaging with your loved one, they’re always keeping an eye on them, so to speak. That way, if there’s any change in your loved one’s condition, they can get hospice staff right away.
More Than Just “Someone to Talk to”
Sure, that’s a major component of what our hospice care workers do.
However, they can also make sure that the doctors’ recommendations are adhered to. Your loved ones may not want to take their medicine when they’re supposed to, or they might ignore or even fight against certain activities after surgery. Our caregivers can make sure all of that is followed to the letter, helping your loved one to recover and just feel that much better.
Hygiene is important, but perhaps especially so when someone’s in a hospice and might not be able to take care of themselves as well. Our pros can help with this, in addition to feeding, playing games, and so much more.
They can even get messages to loved ones, run errands, bring items from home. When you hire one of our caregivers, you have someone that answers to you at the medical facility with your loved one. We’ve been helping folks in medical facilities for a long time and can put that experience to work for you and your loved ones. For more: .
