Helping You Help Those You Love
Deciding to seek hospice care is never easy. However, if the choice is made at the right time, it can make all the difference in your loved ones’ outlook. Those with serious illnesses crave peace and comfort in dealing with their difficult challenges. At MediLodge of Rochester Hills, we are equipped to help all our residents enjoy a better quality of life, no matter what circumstances they face. It may be difficult to talk about and even harder to accept the need for hospice care. Our sensitive and capable staff members are here to serve our residents and their families in any way they can.
Hospice care has grown in popularity among many American families. Statistics show that more than 1.5 million people will admit their loved ones to a hospice care facility yearly.
So, what exactly is hospice care? Well, unlike the other types of medical care that are out there, hospice care focuses on caring for a person who has a terminal illness as opposed to trying to cure him or her.
While our care staff tends to our residents’ basic needs, our nurses and doctors focus on providing pain management for their symptoms. Also, our emotional and psychological support team helps residents adjust and enjoy their new surroundings and relationships.
Additionally, we provide the families of those who are terminally ill with support throughout the process. We can show you how to properly care for your loved ones while offering counseling services and instruction.
Hospice care is available to those of all ages and has proven to be extremely beneficial to those who take advantage of it. It’s designed to ensure that your close family member is well taken care of.
Signs Your Loved One May Need Hospice Care:
While an illness progresses and a family member debilitates, turning to a care center is often the only choice. But with proper planning and awareness, your loved one can be more included in the decision instead of seeing it as a last resort. If you are noticing any of the following issues becoming more obvious or frequent, then hospice care should be discussed as a possibility. If your loved one is:
- In constant pain
- Making routine trips to the ER
- Having trouble with hygiene habits and self-care routines
- Forgetting to take medications
- Slipping or falling too often
- Losing noticeable amounts of weight
- More confused and forgetful lately
- Constantly dealing with infections
- Unable to sleep regularly
- Experiencing a lower quality of life
