It is crucial for your loved one’s physical and mental health that they are able to pass their final days in some level of comfort. However, some people will continue to hold false beliefs about how hospice addresses pain. Some people might believe that hospice care is all about medicating or “doping” the patient so they can wait for death pain-free.
As a result, Compassionate Hospice Care, Inc. strives to offer hospice care in Los Angeles County, California, that is high-quality, compassionate, and does not rely heavily on strong drugs to treat our patients’ pain. The goal of hospice is to improve the patient’s quality of life and help them strike the right balance between comfort and dignity, as well as pain relief and the ability to live life.
Patients may feel a variety of discomforts as they approach the end of their lives, including, but not limited to, nausea, anxiety, shortness of breath, constipation, and insomnia. Our palliative care in Los Angeles County, California, will offer our patients alternatives to relying heavily on their painkillers, such as massage therapy, spiritual counseling, and dietary counseling.
We offer a full range of home hospice care services, including 24-hour on-call availability. These services may also be offered in settings other than homes, such as medical facilities, nursing homes, or retirement communities.
Receiving a diagnosis of a terminal illness will result in a range of emotions that frequently confound the patient and their family. Our responsibility is to be there for you, to offer you the resources, support, and health care services you need to get through this trying time.
