Respite Care for Families When a Senior Loved One Enters Hospice Care
The compassionate caregivers at Amada Springfield are trained in the best practices of end-of-life care and we can help families every step of the way with support and comfort.
When a senior is ready for in-home hospice care, an increased level of care and responsibility naturally come along with deepening concerns. Emotions run high. What’s required of the family can be unrelenting and exhausting in ensuring their loved one’s last days are filled with comfort and dignity.
Amada’s expert, compassionate caregivers provide a welcome respite from the continuous care and extreme mental and emotional energy output that accompany the final passage. Sometimes the focus can be so intense, people neglect their most basic needs including showering, eating, and sleeping. The option to step away, even briefly, can provide family members with the opportunity to rest, refresh and regroup—knowing their parent or spouse is in excellent hands—returning better able to be fully present with their loved one.
You can rely on the Amada Springfield team of trained caregivers to support your family during this critical time in the senior care journey. Please contact us today at 417-210-7300.
