Comfort Keepers of Cape Girardeau, MO can provide comforting, end of life care for your loved one and assist the family with palliative care during this difficult time
When a family member is diagnosed with limited-life expectancy, he or she often has a strong desire to spend the final days in the comfort of home. However, providing end of life care for a loved one at the end of life can be emotionally challenging and physically exhausting. Comfort Keepers® can support you and your loved one by working with a hospice agency or medical provider to fully meet the family’s palliative care needs. We will help care for the client and help around the house as well as provide the family with emotional and moral support.
What is End Of Life Care?
End of life services are reserved for those with serious illnesses, chronic dieases, or limited life expectancy. They can be performed for families in the home or at a nursing facility. The ultimate goal is to provide comfort for all parties involved, so every moment can have the most made out of it. These services can also extend after a loved one has passed.
