North York Hospice and Palliative Care Services for the Elderly
Palliative Care for the Elderly
Palliative care, put simply, is meant to provide seniors suffering from life-threatening illnesses with relief. At the end of their lives, seniors often want to be in a familiar environment surrounded by loved ones. A senior home care worker can help your loved one maintain a sense of independence during this time, as well as help with their care.
When you hire someone for palliative care, whether in Toronto or anywhere, they should work closely with you and your loved one to determine the best options and goals, striving to relieve pain and improve your loved one’s quality of life.
At Home Care Assistance – Toronto/York Region, our palliative home care service providers realize that a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work when it comes to caring for patients with a serious illness; that is why we will create a care program that is suited to their needs.
Our ultimate goal with senior home care is to relieve patients’ suffering and provide them with the best quality of life for both them and their families, whether they’ve just been diagnosed with an illness or it is advanced.
Hospice Home Care Service for Seniors
If your loved one remaining at home at the end of their life is not an option, a hospice can provide them with a comfortable environment. We also provide hospice care in North York; as caring for a loved one on your own can be a challenge, our caregivers will help you through this difficult time.
And if it will be the first time that you have had to deal with a loved one who is at the end of their life, our hospice care providers will also help you and your family to say goodbye.
Hospice care typically relies on families and friends to provide care for seniors. However, even though you may want to spend as much time as possible with your loved one, this may not be possible; that is where our hospice care in North York comes in. We can provide overnight care for your loved one and our caregivers will inform you immediately if there is any change in your loved one’s condition. And when you can’t be there, our caregivers can provide your loved one with companionship so they aren’t alone, medication reminders, and prepared meals, with portions to suit their appetite.
Regardless of your needs for hospice care in North York and the surrounding area, whether it’s a few hours, overnight, or a couple days a week, the caregivers at Home Care Assistance – Toronto/York Region will provide seniors with the services they need at an affordable price.
