If your elderly loved one has advanced heart failure, shared decision-making becomes an important step in determining treatment options for the remainder of your loved one’s life. Advanced heart failure is determined when heart disease reaches a stage beyond curable treatment and management strategies. In the United States, about 570,000 seniors have advanced heart failure. Shared decision-making involves discussions about end-of-life options. Does your loved one want to be resuscitated in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest? How long would your loved one want to be on life support? Hospice care, or palliative care, is always included as part of one’s end-of-life care planning. Many seniors request not to be hooked onto a life support machine; they rather just enjoy the rest of their remaining days in peace and comfort as much as possible. A-1 Home Care offers 24-hour hospice care for seniors and their families in Diamond Bar and surrounding cities.
Professional Hospice Caregiver Acts as Liaison
Planning your loved one’s end-of-life care evokes much grief during the process, but A-1 Home Care in Diamond Bar will be here to help you every step of the way from answering any questions you may have about your elderly loved one’s wishes to providing in-home care assistance such as meal preparation, chores, bathing, and personal care. Our seasoned and highly skilled hospice caregivers will serve as a liaison between your loved one’s medical team, you and your elderly loved one. Hospice care in the familiarity of your own home provides additional peace for your loved one as opposed to receiving hospice care at a nursing home or hospital. According to the Hospice Foundation of America, individuals prefer to die in comfortable surroundings than clinical, institutional settings. Among many other benefits of in-home palliative care, giving your elderly loved one a sense of dignity in his final days is quintessential.
