Comfort Keepers can help your loved one stay comfortable and independent even following a terminal diagnosis.
A terminal diagnosis is heartbreaking and tends to turn the entire family upside down. However, there is always something we can do even in dire situations such as this. Comfort Keepers offers end of life care in Fountain Valley, CA, helping seniors in the final stages of their lives live and die in comfort and dignity.
Receiving end of life care before it is too late can make a major difference in a senior's life. Besides the positive emotional impact, studies have shown that seniors who receive this type of care are less likely to end up in the emergency room, be hospitalized or undergo emergency medical procedures. Taking this into consideration, you may want to consider how end of life care can positively impact your loved one's life.
Added Benefits of Our End of Life Care
One of the less tangible benefits of end of life care is communication. Having a caregiver around will allow your loved one to communicate their wishes better and take as much time as they like. Our caregiver can also serve as a proxy for your loved one, allowing for better communication not only with their medical team but also with their loved ones. At the same time, having someone around to speak with can be enormously comforting.
Furthermore, at the end of their lives, seniors may be finding themselves constantly making appointments and meeting with doctors, social workers, therapists and other staff, so much so that it may be taking up all of their time. A caregiver can help your loved one plan and consolidate their responsibilities to be able to take time for doing what they actually want to be doing at this stage.
Time is of course a major issue once a senior receives a terminal diagnosis. Care professionals will be there to take care of everything your loved one needs, giving both you and your parent more time to spend together. Non-medical caregivers can take care of things like housekeeping, laundry, running errands, and meal preparation and also anything related to the final wishes of your loved one.
Once your loved one passes, end of life care professionals can help you plan the funeral and anything else you may need. The goal is to help reduce anxiety, allowing you the proper space and opportunity to grieve on your terms.
