“Hospice care is about recognizing the beauty of the present moment and cherishing the time we have left.” For those living with a terminal illness, involving hospice care before the holidays means allowing more time together, making memories, and focusing on what matters most. The provision of quality end-of-life care can reduce hospital costs by reducing readmissions, emergency department visits and intensive care stays. This allows caregivers to spend more time at home enjoying holiday traditions with their loved ones and less time spent worrying at the hospital.
Tidings of Comfort
With trusted hospice care from our Covenant Care team, your loved one can have their pain and symptoms managed from the comfort of home. Our team of experts will provide physical, social, emotional, and spiritual care through a physician-directed interdisciplinary group that may include Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses, Personal Care Aides, Social Workers, Spiritual Care Coordinators, Bereavement Specialists, and Volunteers. This team works to enhance care, improve quality of life, and ensure optimal well-being. This team provides relief for caregivers, reducing stress and opening them up to helpful resources, advice, expertise, and emotional support for the entire family. This allows caregivers and family the opportunity to spend more time enjoying the gift of the present with their ill loved one.
There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays
Hospice Care can typically be provided wherever you call home! Your terminally ill loved one and family can enjoy time spent together in your beautifully decorated home for Christmas. Your loved one can enjoy the familiar tastes and smells of the holiday, and your family can gather together in tradition. It’s our goal to honor a patient’s choice to receive care in their home or a home-like setting whenever possible. If a patient’s symptoms are uncontrolled and can’t be managed at home, Covenant Care can provide services in our Hospice Inpatient Centers. Covenant Care is the only hospice provider in the region with multiple centers for hospice care, equipped to handle the most complex cases.
