When a loved one requires hospice care, a primary challenge is understanding what resources are available to ensure a compassionate environment where dignity and care are maintained throughout the end of life process. The goal becomes ensuring quality of life at the end of life. While caregiving for a loved one can be a very rewarding experience, providing the necessary care and support that loved one needs in without additional support is extremely challenging.
Whether an individual at the end life wants to remain at home or is in a hospice setting, caregivers can provide assistance, rest and improve attitude. Caregivers provide respite for family members and loved ones by preparing meals,doing light housework, helping with bathing and personal hygiene, giving medication reminders and providing compassion and warmth.
Understanding what exactly hospice caregiving entails and sorting through the myriad of options can be time consuming and trying. The Handbook of Live-In Care, the first publication of its kind targeted at family caregivers, provides practical advice in these areas and offers the first definitive guide to maximizing the quality of life for an individual in hospice care.
