When we have a loved one who is nearing the end of their life, all we want is to make the most of the time that they have left, right? To achieve this, we must be meticulous when it comes to choosing from the countless providers of hospice care services.
The problem is that reliable information can be tough to come by, which makes us prone to be misled, or worse, it can result in us making ill-informed decisions. This is one of the problems that we hope to overcome here at MODERNE HOSPICE CARE INC.
In our facility, we aim to assist families in need by providing only the best palliative care in Chula Vista, California, and by making relevant information accessible. As such, here are key questions to ask when evaluating prospective providers:
- Will the hospice provide training to family caregivers?
- How often will a hospice team member visit, and how long will most visits last?
- What is the typical response time if it is necessary to reach someone at the hospice after normal business hours or on weekends and holidays?
- Will the hospice send a registered nurse, nurse practitioner, or physician to the home if the patient’s symptoms are not being managed? How long will it take the nurse/doctor to arrive?
If you wish to learn more about all there is to end of life care, we’d be more than glad to assist you. Talk to us today!
We also offer nursing services in California among many others. If you’re interested, call us for inquiries!
