Providing compassionate service to those living with serious illness by lending an extra hand.
As much as we can, we will want to find a cure, healing treatment or a rehabilitative mode of providing care for clients. However, there are just some cases when recovery is no longer an option. Some clients may prefer to deal with a life-limiting illness by increasing comfort instead of focusing on a cure. This is where Hospice Care becomes our first recommendation.
Hospice Care becomes an ideal choice for health care when:
Your physician advices you that the benefits of more treatment are small and that a cure is not expected at your current stage in health
You or your loved one is physically and emotionally exhausted from treatments and being confined in a hospital setting; choosing instead to forego aggressive treatments and further tests such as x-rays, scans and other procedures
You or your loved one opts for Palliative Care, a type of care that provides comfort, emotional support and symptom management; helping the patient live the remaining days to the fullest as opposed to continually receiving treatment for his or her medical condition
Helping Hands Home Healthcare & Hospice welcomes every opportunity to help families come to terms with a terminal illness. We provide solutions for those who seek maximum comfort through these services:
- Routine Home Care
- Continuous Home Care
- General Inpatient Care
- Respite Care
Eligibility for hospice care will be determined by your physician or the medical doctor who certifies your life-limiting illness with a prognosis of six months or less.
It may be time to concentrate in improving the quality of your life at home. Let us help you make the most of your time at home with your family. Please call 650-286-9000 if you would like to request for hospice care services. Helping Hands Home Healthcare & Hospice is always here, ready to help you!
