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.
The position of long-term caregiver may be both one of the most rewarding and most challenging. Emotional hills and valleys are only some of the invisible signs of daily care for another human being. Caregivers often tend to provide such loving support for others that they forget to take care of themselves. This can cause a downward spiral in health and mental well-being. However, caregivers are often the last people to ask others for help. How can you provide caregivers with the support that they need to be more comfortable in their role?
Making the decision to spend the remainder of your time at home provides you with a peaceful way to be surrounded by friends and family. However, depending on your condition, your home may not be suitable for someone who is ill and needs significant medical and nursing support. Caregivers who want to make their loved one as comfortable as possible have a variety of options that allow for intensive hospice care at home. These small additions to your living space can provide meaningful benefits to your loved one and caregivers alike.
