4 Levels of Hospice Care
"We have had a very positive experience with 4 Seasons Senior Living and the Gillespie house. The staff is very friendly, and the owners are very hands-on and have reached out to us several times to make sure that we are happy with the care our loved one is receiving."
Hospice care (end-of-life care) for seniors focuses on quality of life and providing compassionate care during the last phases of the disease so your loved one can be as comfortable as possible. Caregivers try to control and monitor the pain and other symptoms to allow the individual to remain as comfortable and relaxed as possible.
During an illness that is terminal, you or your loved ones may talk with your doctor and decide the treatments meant to cure or slow a disease are no longer working.
Your doctor may refer you to hospice care (also called end-of-life care) if they believe the terminal illness only gives you 6 months or less to live. Hospice isn't always a permanent choice, and you can stay in hospice care beyond the expected time frame the doctor stated.
Hospice care for seniors can take place in a group home setting (residential care home), at home, at a hospice center, in a hospital, or a nursing facility.
At 4 Seasons Senior Living, our team includes caregivers, doctors, nurses, and home health aides that work together to meet your physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.
Hospice isn't always a permanent choice. You have the control to decide if you want to continue with hospice care or stop. Whatever your decision is, we are here for you to provide the care you need.
Our compassionate and caring staff provide a home-like setting at our residential care homes for your loved one to be as comfortable as possible by monitoring levels of pain and symptom management. Our caregivers understand that every hospice resident is unique.
