If you or a loved one lives in the Salt Lake City, Ogden or West Haven areas and you’re looking for hospice care, we invite you to consider PeachTree Place Assisted Living. We offer compassionate care to all of our residents and are here to help them enjoy each day, including the final phase of their lives.
What Is Hospice Care?
The formal definition of hospice is palliative care for someone with a life-limiting illness. In plain English, this means that a team of doctors, nurses, and aides manage pain and other symptoms to keep a person physically comfortable. The goal is not to cure a disease but to improve the person’s quality for the rest of their life, however long that may be.
The Advantages Of Nursing Home Hospice
There are plenty of hospice services that offer care in the home, but they aren’t always the best fit for every family. An assisted living facility can offer a less stressful solution to end-of-
life care for both the patient and their family. Here are a few advantages that assisted living facilities have over in-home hospice services:
- A safe, comfortable place to stay when home isn’t an option.
- Caregivers aren’t forced to change their living situation to accommodate the terminally-ill family member.
- Medical staff is available on-site, 24 hours a day to provide immediate care whenever it’s needed.
- Opportunities to socialize with other residents when able adds happiness to the final months of life.
