National Hospice Awareness Month 


November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month and Freedom Home Care is working to help raise understanding and awareness. If you have a loved one who is in need of hospice care, we are your home care agency. We provide assistance and the support you need and deserve.

Understanding Hospice Care

Hospice is a specific form of care for patients who are terminally ill. Once medical treatments are no longer curative, care is tailored and designed to give that patient comfort and the highest quality of life possible, rather than a cure. The ultimate goal of hospice care is to provide a pain-free and supportive environment. Many hospice programs are home-based, while the patient’s family members may place the patient in a facility devoted to hospice care.

Many hospice regimens include several professionals who provide specific services. For example, a hospice program may include not only medical professionals, but a social worker and even a member of the clergy or a spiritual advisor.

The Importance of Hospice Care

Hospice care serves many functions, among them being supportive and dignified care and assistance for a patient. Not only does hospice care focus on patients who are ill, but hospice care also provides care, support and understanding to the patient’s family members and friends. When a loved one is diagnosed with an illness and there is not a cure, it can be difficult coming to terms with as well as other various realities. It’s important that the patient’s family discusses their needs as they pertain to their loved one. For many family members, there are feelings of confusion and uncertainty. Freedom medical staffing professionals understand this and stand ready to help. Hospice care is for individuals who are at the end-of-life, but extends throughout that patient’s family.
