Choosing the Best Option for Hospice Care

28 Mar 2016 Blog

One of the hardest things in life is having to watch the health of a loved one decline. Looking on as a family member deals with a terminal illness can take its toll. Providing the care they need can be overwhelming, and caring for other family members can limit the amount of time needed to attend to the loved one dealing with a terminal condition.

Amara Hospice wants to be there for you. We know you want to be there for your loved ones and that’s why we provide 24-hour skilled nursing services 365 days a year.

Making the Decision

A common misconception clients have about hospice care facilities is that they only care for patients during the last weeks of their lives. Actually, a patient can choose hospice care when they are dealing with a life-limiting condition and are no longer responding to treatment.

Amara Hospice can be there with a specialized team of doctors, nurses, social workers and other health care professionals. Once diagnosed, a patient’s family can contact Amara for early information and education to help alleviate stress.

The Type of Care

First and foremost, Amara Hospice is here to help manage pain and treat symptoms in the most comfortable way possible for patients. The interdisciplinary team at Amara evaluates each incoming patient to determine what best suits his or her needs. We offer:

  • Respite Care – Short-term care at Amara’s facilities
  • Routine Care – Services spanning weeks to months at either the patient’s home or Amara’s facilities
  • General Inpatient Hospice Care – 24-hour support at Amara Hospice
  • Continuous Hospice Care – When both patient and caregiver are supported through brief periods of crisis, continuous care is available

The Interdisciplinary Care Team at Amara Hospice will continue to communicate with doctors and other health care professionals involved with the patient’s diagnosis.

Comprehensive Consideration

Amara Hospice does not stop at a patient’s care. We also have therapists available to guide family members through the difficult times they may face after losing a loved one. Know that once a loved one is gone, it does not signal the end of the process. We will also be accessible after their passing because we know how rough coping can be.
