Hospice and Private Duty Care: A Good Partnership

Private duty home care can provide respite care for family caregivers struggling to take care of loved ones who are hospice patients. End of life care is often difficult for families. Partnering alongside hospice teams allows us to offer several benefits to help alleviate compassion fatigue, known as caregiver burnout.

Yesterday, I met with new clients, a wonderful, loving family taking care of their 80 year old mother, a hospice patient, diagnosed with end stage bile duct cancer. The family has requested 12 hours shifts. Hospice care is comfort-oriented care and works with an inter-disciplinary team: medical doctor, RN's, Social Worker, home care aides, spiritual care, volunteers. Private duty care can supplement care, apart from and alongside hospice. Our caregivers can offer the patient and family extra care and peace of mind with compassion.

Knowing you are not alone at this difficult time is important in end of life care. We can accommodate schedules according to the needs of patients and families. Comforcare, like hospice, offers comfort-oriented care.
