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.
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.
At Santé, we strive to provide a compassionate continuum of care by offering a variety of services to patients in the comfort of their home. Our home health care services include different types of nursing, physical, occupational, and speech therapy. Patients can also receive in-home care from social workers and home health aides.
