Louisiana - Hospice

Making end-of-life preparations for a loved one is always an emotional and stressful time. Planning may seem daunting but if you can do it, the time you put in now will give you extra time to spend with your loved one when it is so important.

Hospice

Many families find Hospice , to be the best match for their loved one's end-of-life care wishes. Hospice focuses on a senior's comfort and calmness in whatever setting the individual chooses - a private home, a nursing home, or a hospice facility - in favor of intensive medical treatment. Staff works around the clock administering palliative care to keep individuals pain free and at ease as they approach their final days.

A well-prepared family will have an easier time finding closure rather than working to figure out care plans at the last minute.
