How Our Senior Care Franchise Supports Families with Palliative Care
As the owner of a senior care franchise, you’ll be in the unique position to assist seniors and families through the most raw and vulnerable periods of their lives. With Visiting Angels®, you can provide a range of specialized services to uplift your community, including palliative care.
Through palliative care, your senior care franchise can not only offer logistical support, but can help your clients rediscover hope and joy — even in the most difficult circumstances.
Not familiar with this form of care, or interested in learning more? In this post, we’ll delve into the nature of palliative care and its transformative effects on clients with terminal conditions.
How Your Senior Care Franchise can Help People with Health Problems
Though often confused with end of life or hospice care — which is specifically for people with a limited life expectancy — palliative care is an ongoing form of holistic support for anyone with a severe health condition.
The goal of palliative care is to help clients enjoy the highest quality of life as they manage and undergo treatment for their illness. In fact, people can benefit most from palliative care if they start fairly soon after their diagnosis.
When you provide palliative care at your senior care franchise, you’ll have the opportunity to make a meaningful difference in clients’ lives for months if not years as they undergo treatment.
To provide the most comprehensive relief from the physical, mental, and psychological strain of a major health condition, palliative care can include the following:
- Assistance with pain and symptom management
- Calming companionship
- Meaningful activities based on client interests
- Expectation setting for future treatments
- Emotional and spiritual support
- Help with day-to-day tasks as needed
Ultimately, palliative care can do more than help clients cope with an illness. It can help individuals and their families stay positive, celebrate life, and embrace everyday joys too.
