Connecticut - Hospice Care

Hospice Care

When an elderly loved one receives a life-limiting diagnosis, many families consider Hospice to make their loved one comfortable. Hospice provides palliative care, nursing care, personal care services, access to 24-hour medical staff, clergy or other religious officials available for support, and grief and bereavement counseling. The focus is not on medical treatments, but on end-of-life comfort and can take place in an individual's home, an assisted living community or a nursing home. To find out if Hospice is right for your loved one, read Care.com's article on the pros and cons of hospice care. Our site can connect you to local hospice centers, senior caregivers, support groups and services, and organizations dedicated to end-of-life care.
