What to Expect From End of Life Care
When a family member or loved one close to you has been diagnosed with a limited life expectancy, chances are they will need some form of end of life care. In most cases this responsibility will fall on close family members and can be physically and emotionally overwhelming to take on by yourself. Nova understands this, and we can help.
While providing support and care for the family is a key component of end of life care, making sure your loved one is provided the best support to minimize discomfort and assist with a variety of tasks (bathing, dressing, hygiene, etc.) is the primary focus. To help the family, caregivers can prepare meals, do laundry, run errands, provide light housekeeping, and perform a variety of other tasks to give necessary respite to the family members providing care.
On top of the physical tasks, end of life caregivers will also provide emotional support whenever needed.
