When a loved one is diagnosed with a terminal illness or faces a chronic condition, it can be overwhelming to navigate the healthcare system and make decisions about our care. The option of home care services can alleviate some of the stress and provide comfort and support for both the patient and our family. Angelicare Hospice’s health care at home offers a range of solutions to enhance the quality of life for those facing serious illnesses.
Personalized Care Plans
We understand that each individual and family has unique needs and preferences. That’s why our team of experts works closely with patients and our loved ones to create personalised care plans. These care plans take into account the patient’s medical condition, physical and emotional needs, as well as our lifestyle and daily routines. This approach ensures that patients receive tailored care that supports our overall well-being.
The caregivers at Angelicare Hospice are highly trained and experienced in providing home care services. We are also compassionate and empathetic individuals who prioritise the patient’s comfort and dignity. Our role is to provide support with daily living activities, such as bathing, dressing, and grooming, as well as medication management and pain management. We also provide emotional support and companionship to both patients and our families, ensuring that we feel connected and cared for.
Healthcare needs can arise at any time, and Angelicare Hospice understands the importance of being available to our patients 24/7. Whether it’s a medical emergency or just needing someone to talk to, our team of caregivers and healthcare professionals are always on call to provide support and assistance.
Home care services include palliative care, which focuses on providing relief from symptoms and improving the quality of life for patients facing serious illnesses. Palliative care can include pain management, symptom management, and emotional and spiritual support. This approach aims to reduce the burden of illness and improve the patient’s overall well-being.
After a loved one passes away, it’s natural to experience grief and loss. Home care services offer grief support to help families navigate this difficult time. Our grief support services can include counselling, support groups, and educational resources to help families cope with our loss.
Coordination of Care
Home care services also provide coordination of care, which means that we work closely with the patient’s healthcare team to ensure that all of our medical needs are met. This includes communicating with physicians, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers to ensure that the patient receives comprehensive and coordinated care.
Our health care at home services take a holistic approach to patient care, which means that we consider all aspects of the patient’s well-being. This includes addressing our physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. By taking a holistic approach, our home care services aim to enhance the patient’s quality of life and overall well-being.
Expertise in End-of-Life Care
Home care services specialise in end-of-life care, which means that we have expertise in providing comfort and support to patients and families during this difficult time. Our team of caregivers and healthcare professionals are trained to provide compassionate care and support to patients and families facing end-of-life care.
Our home care services also offer medical support to patients. This includes skilled nursing care, wound care, and medication management. Our team of licensed healthcare professionals work closely with patients and our physicians to ensure that the patient’s medical needs are met. We also provide education and training to family members to help them better understand the patient’s condition and care needs.
We understand that patients and our families may also need spiritual support during this difficult time. We offer spiritual care services that are designed to meet the needs of people of all faiths. These services can include prayer, meditation, or simply providing a listening ear. This approach recognizes the importance of addressing the patient’s spiritual needs in addition to our physical and emotional needs.
Taking care of a loved one with a serious illness can be physically and emotionally exhausting. Angelicare Hospice’s home care services also offer respite care to provide family members with a break.
