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.

A common misconception with occupational therapy is that it is the same thing as physical therapy. While there are some similarities between the two, occupational therapy is distinctly unique.

If you have a friend or family member who is terminally ill or nearing death, it can be difficult to know what to do or say. Acting as if it’s not happening can sometimes help both of you deal with the situation, but it’s also important to be in tune with your emotions and not pass up opportunities to talk openly.
