Home Companions for Elderly Arcadia Residents seeking Hospice Care

Most of us strive to be prepared for the challenges life gives us. You may have weathered several career changes, financial difficulties, or simply the loss of letting go of adult children. Few are prepared for facing the death of a loved one. Not much is known about what the dying process feels like, or what, if anything, happens after you die. However, experienced hospice care workers are intimately familiar with the process that the body undergoes in the days and hours leading to a natural death.

During the body’s dying process, the body’s systems begin to shut down. The dying person has less energy and begins to sleep more. At this point, it may be necessary to arrange for a loved one or caregiver to provide 24 hour vigil, as lungs may fill with fluid (producing the “death rattle”), or to alleviate pains. At this point, the body is conserving what little energy it has, and the dying person will require less food and water.

Care for Elders with Alzheimer Disease

Hospice caregiving is in home care for the end of life. Adults and elders who have suffered from severe illnesses such as cancer, Alzheimer disease, or are simply at advanced age, will no longer be receiving treatment for these disorders. Instead, medical attention is focused on comfort care.
