The diagnosis of a chronic illness can be devastating to a family, bringing on stages of grief and unimaginable pain. Hospice care is a specialized type of treatment for patients that are entering the final stages of their life and is generally reserved for individuals with less than 6 months to live. With a hospice plan in place, patients are able to have more control over the way their final months of life are spent -- often choosing to live at home to enjoy the time that they have left with friends and family.
The rehabilitation treatment process begins with knowing the right type of treatment for your specific situation. Santé’s rehabilitation services include physical, occupational, and speech therapy in addition to skilled nursing services. By understanding the differences between short-term and long-term care, you’ll be better equipped to improve your quality of life and recover from injury.
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.
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.
