When you become a caregiver for someone you love, your life changes in ways you never thought possible.
Instead of typical family relationships, your priorities can shift to caring for a loved one’s physical needs. You also may need to take over your loved one’s household responsibilities, financial accounts, or even their work. Caregiving can be exhausting, and the added emotional stress can complicate your life even more.
Since 1980, Hope Hospice has offered a variety of ways to help caregivers:
- We begin by listening to the details of your family’s experience.
- We offer advice on how you can “get it off your chest” to release the emotional and physical strain that you’ve accumulated.
- Family members often say that the insights we provide are very valuable.
- We also share tips on what to expect as your love one’s illness progresses.
After our preliminary discussion, if hospice care seems appropriate, the Hope Hospice team of professional caregivers will provide expert medical care in coordination with your physician’s care plan. We also can provide a wide range of non-medical support, including help with personal care, such as bathing and light housekeeping. In addition, our team of highly trained, experienced volunteers is available to provide companionship and assistance as required.
We’re always ready with open hearts, minds, and ears to help ease your concerns and to provide emotional and spiritual support along the way. We can even help with financial issues and end-of-life planning.
