Hospice Care Guide

Understanding more on Hospices


Perhaps the most shattering news to any family is the diagnosis of a family member with a chronic illness. It's a dark cloud that permanently changes the family dynamics. Hospice comes a light in the darkness.


Hospice is a focused care given to individuals with chronic illness, terminal illness and other life limiting conditions. Cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, heart diseases, arthritis, dementia and hepatitis C among others are examples of such life threatening conditions.


The care is all round. The physical, mental, spiritual, emotional as well as social needs are taken care of. To achieve this holistic care, the hospice team is usually diverse. It has physicians, nurses, home health aides, social workers, clergy or counsellors, and different therapists.


Hospice care at procarehospicenv.com is far much beneficial than the primary health care. Beyond the patient support, care and support is extended to the primary health care givers or the family of the patient. This eases the burden and makes it bearable both to the patient and the family.


Closely related to hospice is palliative care. Whereas hospice provides care after all medical interventions to treat a disease have failed and it's apparent the patient is not going to survive, and estimated lifespan is less than six months, palliative care can begin at diagnosis and treatment stage.


Hospice model care is well developed especially in the western world. Many institutions offer this care in the different states. Some function only within the state while others operate across different states. 


ProCare Hospice operates in Nevada. As they say, they strive to provide to provide the most comforting end-of-life experience.

It's always wise to check which services the particular hospice offers since not all providers offer the same services. And don't forget to check customer reviews.
