Our hospice team at New Vision Hospice & Palliative Care & Palliative Care in Los Angeles, Ca will evaluate the patient’s status and update the plan of care as conditions change. The goal of hospice is to relieve any distress so that patients can live as comfortable as possible.
Our hospice services include:
- Individualized care plan: As dementia progresses, patients lose the ability to express what they need. We will create a plan that addresses hydration, pain, nutrition, skin care, or recurrent infection. These are all common problems associated with dementia.
- Coordinated care at every level: A plan of care allows us to ensure that all information flows properly between doctors, nurses, social workers, and other members of the hospice team. We also coordinate all medications, medical equipment, and medical supplies related to the patient’s diagnosis.
- Care patients where they live: Whether in an assisted living community, long-term care facility, or in their home, we offer inpatient hospice services with around-the-clock care.
- Emotional assistance: Hospice has the resources to help patients maintain their emotional health during this difficult time.
Caregiver education and training
The caregiver is important in helping our team care for the patient. As their condition worsens, communication can be hard. Our job is to relieve any of the family’s concern to educate them on how to care for their loved one best. We can help with difficult decisions that impact the patient’s quality of life. We are available 24/7 for around-the-clock care and to answer any questions you may have about your loved one’s condition. For those dealing with an end-stage illness, we offer respite inpatient care to give the caregiver a break.
