Kare-In-Home Hospice is there every step of the way. We can provide guidance to help you make the right decision for you and your family.
Whether or not hospice is the right choice is personal and will vary from patient to patient.
However, hospice does require a physician’s recommendation, so early referral is extremely beneficial. In fact, studies have shown that transitioning to hospice during the last 60–90 days of life expectancy allows patients to feel more in control, allows for better pain and symptom management, and reduces the need for continued hospital stays and re-admittance.
Hospice can also lessen the burden on the caregiver, reducing anxiety among both family members and the patient.
Choosing hospice does not mean giving up. It allows you to enjoy the quality of life you deserve. We will listen to your concerns and develop a plan that takes your wishes into account. If a patient is active, we do everything possible to allow him or her to continue engaging in the hobbies and activities they enjoy.
For more advanced patients, we provide pain management so they are able to remain as comfortable as possible.
We recognize that the scope of our support is not just limited to the patient, but also includes family and loved ones. We provide bereavement counseling during and after care to help those left behind cope with their grief.
Home Health provides skilled medical care for an illness or injury. It is our goal to help you recover, maintain your independence and improve your quality of life. Whether you or your loved one need assistance after a hospital stay, seek long-term care for a chronic condition or just require support with daily activities, Kare-In-Home Health will provide the right care specialized for your specific needs.
Private care provides a solution when a patient requires individual care beyond that available through hospital nursing staff, a nursing home or home health visit. A private care nurse is on hand when the individual needs care the most, whether it’s just for a few hours a day or 24-hour care. Each patient receives a personal evaluation and a customized plan of care.
Kare-In-Home Medical Equipment provides a wide range of equipment and supplies to fit all your needs. You can be assured that our team will have the right equipment at the right time. In addition to the medical equipment, you will also receive home delivery and set-up, education on safe and proper use, equipment maintenance and experienced staff for support.
