Caregiver Support

Hospice is an excellent resource for support for caregivers:  we provide psychological, spiritual and practical support as well as respite care resources. A family caregiver is someone who provides essential assistance to a person with a chronic or life-threatening illness or a disability. Caregiving may include all kinds of care: day-to-day personal care, medical care or managing financial and legal issues.

We understand that caregiving is a tough job. Caregiving may affect our physical and emotional health; often making us feel isolated, unappreciated, overwhelmed and exhausted. Family caregiving affects families. Relationships can get strained by the pressure and time that caregiving requires.  Feelings of resentment, neglect, and confusion about what they are experiencing can be normal.

You are not alone:  We offer caregiver help and support.  Asking for help is a sign of strength, not a sign of weakness.  Hospice is an excellent resource for caregivers and provide psychological, spiritual and practical support as well as respite care resources.

 

 

“I understand that every patient situation is unique. I can help identify individual patient and caregiver needs and help provide a plan of support.”
