End of Life Care and Palliative Care in South Denver, CO and Surrounding Areas
We are ready to provide comfortable end of life care and assistance for your loved one during a difficult time.
To know that your loved one has a limited time to survive is nothing short of an unbearable torment. When your family member has been diagnosed with a disease which limits their life expectancy, he or she will have a strong desire to see out the end of their life in the comfort of their home and surrounded by their family and friends. American healthcare providers and social workers will offer a lot of medical care options including Hospice Care. But making those tough healthcare decisions is not easy for family members to make when their loved ones are facing a life-limiting illness.
Many family members throughout the United States want the best quality of life for their loved ones when a terminal illness is involved and they eschew the idea of hospice care or a nursing home, taking on the role of the family caregiver. However, providing end of life care and decision-making for someone who has a limited time left to live can be both physically exhausting and emotionally challenging. There are care services healthcare professionals with expertise in palliative care programs are uniquely qualified for including medical treatment, life-sustaining treatments, and more. There are also planning and coordination factors involved in dealing with end of life issues that the decision-maker must face, including living wills, advance directives, life support decisions, cardiopulmonary resuscitation decisions, power of attorney, and so much more. We at Comfort Keepers are a leading care team with years of experience providing palliative care services for family members suffering from serious illness as well as end of life care for your loved ones in their final days. Our home care providers support your loved ones and you by working with a hospice agency, palliative medicine provider or medical practitioner in specific care facilities like a nursing home, to fully meet your family’s needs. We will assist you in fulfilling the needs of the client as well as helping around the house, ensuring that you and the families cope with the situation well, both emotionally and morally, through our spiritual support, advance care planning, symptom management and further end of life care services.
