Hospice Care at Home in Sacramento, Roseville, and Amador Areas
When medical options have been exhausted or a loved one has decided to go on their own terms, many families find solace in being in the comfort of their own home. While the decision to start hospice care at home is not an easy one, families may find peace-creating last memories in a comfortable and familiar surrounding. Excel Hospice Care strives to make the entire process peaceful for families and loved ones alike.
The Benefit of Hospice Care at Home
Hospice care creates a caring and positive quality of life for a patient during his or her final time. While passing is inevitable, we strive to make the journey as tranquil as possible by putting our patients and families at ease. Being in a familiar setting provides a sense of empowerment to the patient to pass on his or her own terms and where he or she decides. The comfort of hospice care at home also permits patients and families to allow visitors, including beloved family, clergy, friends, and neighbors, as they see fit and who may also prefer the comfort of a home setting.
Skilled Nursing and Hospice
The hospice care at home provided by Excel Hospice Care throughout the Sacramento, Roseville, and Amador areas focuses on the whole patient with careful attention to their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Our clients have found comfort in the whole-patient approach we deliver by including a number of experienced caregivers. Aside from equipping the resting area, we also assist with palliative care and symptom management. Families want to see their loved ones comfortable and we are committed to education for families as what options exist. We understand both our patient and our families want to spend time without the presence of pain or other distress.
