What is Hospice?
Hospice is a specialized type of care for patients who are facing life-limiting illnesses or diseases. It addresses their physical, emotional and spiritual needs as well as those of their family and/or caregiver. At New Vision Hospice & Palliative Care, we offer in-home hospice care services in and around Los Angeles. We concentrate on managing our patients’ pain and other symptoms in order to help them to live as comfortably as possible. The quality of life is just as important as the length of our patients’ lives to us. Hospice isn’t reserved for those with cancer. Individuals with lung disease, cancer, dementia, heart disease and other medical conditions may all require hospice care services too. Hospice services means specialized visits from our professional hospice staff to help with improving the quality of life. While we aren’t a caregiver, we can help with bathing, dressing and giving medication to our patients. Generally, our at-home hospice service begins when a referral is made. We strive to contact our patient and their family within 48 hours of this referral to arrange services.
In-Home hospice care
New Vision Hospice & Palliative Care offers both hospice and palliative care in our patients’ homes. We work with a patient’s family, their doctor and spiritual caregivers, to address their needs. Our team is well versed in all of the latest medications that help to relieve pain. We believe that emotional and spiritual pain is just as real and needs attention as much as physical pain. We will assess your needs at our first visit. We also will address any concerns or answer any questions about the hospice process ahead. Each patient must have a primary caregiver in the home that works with our hospice team and the patient to develop a care plan based on their needs. The caregiver is responsible for making decisions for the patient during the duration of the hospice care at-home service. Our team makes regular visits to the home and is also available by telephone 24/7. We strive to be kind, compassionate and caring individuals who increase someone’s quality of life at the end of their life.
Levels of Hospice Care
Level 1 is routine home care, which is the basic level of care. Level 2 is continuous home care where a nurse or home health aide remains in the patient’s home for an extended period of time. This is reevaluated every 24 hours. Those with severe nausea or vomiting, unrelieved pain, shortness of breath, anxiety attacks or lack of a caregiver all qualify for this level of hospice care. Level 3 of hospice care is known as general inpatient care. This means that a patient’s short-term symptoms are severe they can’t receive care from home or prefer to be at a facility. Respite care is level 4 of hospice care and is more for the family than a patient. If the patient doesn’t meet criteria for continuous or inpatient care and the family is having a hard time, this may be an option. A patient may be temporarily placed in an inpatient environment for a maximum of five days. Our professional staff can help determine which level of care your loved one should receive with our at-home hospice care.
Hospice Palliative Care
Palliative care is focused on the physical and emotional effects of an illness Palliative care is for those that may be going through an illness or condition that will resolve itself and they only need temporary help. This is a great resource for someone living with a serious illness, but doesn’t have a limited time to live. Conditions such as dementia, Parkinson’s, heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and more can all benefit from this type of care. Not only does it help with symptoms, but improves the patient’s quality of life. Palliative care can help patients to understand their choices for medical treatment too. At New Vision Hospice & Palliative Care, we provide at-home palliative care services to our patients.
