We can provide comforting, palliative care and end-of-life care for your loved one and assist the family during this difficult time.
When a family member is diagnosed with limited-life expectancy, he or she often has a strong desire to spend the final days in the comfort of home. However, caring for a loved one at the end of life can be emotionally challenging and physically exhausting.
Comfort Keepers® can support you and your loved one by working with a hospice agency or medical provider to fully meet the family’s palliative care or end of life care needs. We will help care for the client and help around the house as well as provide the family with emotional and moral support.
How Comfort Keepers Palliative Care & End of Life Can Help in Rockford, IL
Palliative care is intended to help deal with the pain or stress of symptoms associated with a serious disease. This can include medication management and care recommendations made by a doctor. Caregivers ensure the directions for care are followed and seniors receive the proper care for ensuring symptoms are managed and comfort is maximized. A caregiver will also ensure that personal appearance and hygiene are addressed and the home is taken care of, this way your loved one does not need to be stressed if family or friends wish to visit.
Our ultimate goal with end-of-life care is to provide care and comfort to your loved one and to help families make the most of their limited time together. We help by providing
- bathing, dressing, and toileting assistance for your loved one.
- light house cleaning.
- laundry as needed.
- food preparation.
- companionship to your loved one so you can get a much-needed break.
We can also continue to help after a loved one’s passing. Our Comfort Keepers® can help families deal with the loss and assist with tasks such as organizing personal items and moving belongings—or just simply being there to listen if family members need to talk and process their grief.
