Santé Home Health and Rehabilitation offers a variety of services provided to patients in the comfort of their home to ensure they receive a compassionate continuum of care throughout their recovery. Services include nursing, physical, occupational and speech therapy, social workers and home health aides. In-home care can improve quality of life for those recovering from a hospital stay, fighting a terminal disease or nearing the end of life.

Barbara Bush’s announcement sparked debate over the decision to end medical treatment for a terminal illness. At Santé, we understand that each individual’s needs are different.

At Santé, we believe terminally ill patients and their families should live as fully as possible during the end of life. That’s why we provide quality care when it matters most. Hospice care is tailored to the patient’s needs and typically assists with pain management and emotional support. Although it can be difficult to talk about end-of-life care, families should have this discussion long before it’s needed. Though every patient is different, the following scenarios may require hospice care.

If you are caring for a loved one who is under the long-term care of a physician, perhaps the last conversation you want to consider is one that includes the term end-of-life care or hospice. However, it's important to understand the options and be able to make an informed decision should the need arise.  At Santé, we understand that emotions run deep and it may be a difficult topic to discuss. Our team of professional caregivers are always compassionate and understanding. Our doctors have recommended some signs to be familiar with that may mean your loved one is ready for hospice.
