Hospice Care is available at all levels of care at Hearthstone Communities and can be of great comfort to residents during their last stages of life. While mainly focusing on residents’ physical and medical care, Hospice Care also supports residents’ emotional, social, psychological and spiritual needs. In addition, Hospice Care helps families deal with practical details and the emotional challenges of a dying loved one.
Some of Hospice Care’s goals:
- To make the resident comfortable by controlling physical pain
- To focus on quality of life for the entire family
- To help the resident retain dignity and meaning at the end of life
- To support the grieving process of the family
