Palliative care is a method of care that helps support people with chronic illnesses. Our experienced caregivers help chronically ill patients stay safe at home by providing a soothing and supportive environment. Our care team always prioritizes an individual's physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs.
Home Palliative Care
In-home palliative care allows your loved ones to remain in the place they love - home. Hospice and palliative care have a few specific differences. Hospice care is for people with a short life expectancy, while palliative care is for people with long-term chronic illnesses. We offer a dedicated program for end-of-life care in addition to regular home care services.
Our innovative Palliative Care Certification Program focuses on four areas:
- Physical Needs - We focus on your loved one's physical and emotional needs.
- Emotional Needs - We help our clients retain their favorite routines and hobbies.
- Social Needs - Intimate interactions with clients and their families. We provide companionship and discussion to alleviate loneliness.
- Spiritual Needs - Helping you find peace of mind in a difficult time is our goal for your loved one and your family.
Contact your local EasyLiving office to learn more about our compassionate approach to home care. Before we begin, EasyLiving will conduct a free home care consultation to better understand your loved one's needs. We will create a unique care plan for you and your loved one.
