Home Care is support by a caregiver or sitter in a clients home or community in order to provide companionship or assistance with personal care or errands.
Hospice care treats the person and symptoms of the disease, rather than treating the disease itself. A team of professionals work together to manage symptoms so that a person’s last days may be spent with dignity and quality, surrounded by their loved ones. Hospice care is also family-centered – it includes the patient and the family in making decisions. Hospice is a covered benefit by Medicare and other insurances.
