Hospice Seattle WA - The Holistic Care Approach
One day a terminal diagnosis has been given to you or a loved one.
You have got a lot of questions. Would I be a financial strain on my family? Will I be able to cope with the discomfort? Do I just go to the hospital, or can I sit at home? I'm not sure how I'm going to say my goodbyes.
Hospice Seattle WA can be of assistance.
Our Hospice Seattle WA treatment is far more than mere medical care for the seriously ill. The hospice team assists families in preparing for the death of a loved one in the same way that doctors and midwives assist families in preparing for the time of conception, includes:
- Assist families in realizing what is going on and encouraging them for what may come next.
- Continue to work with families to concentrate on quality family time rather than quantity.
- Aiding families in emotionally preparing and creating finality; time to say "goodbye" and "I love you."
Hospice Care Seattle treatment enables people to live their lives to the fullest before late in life.
For most hospice patients, this means staying in their homes, familiar surroundings with their families, friends, pets, and a relaxed routine. This is made possible by our hospice team's expertise in pain and symptom management, as well as emotional and spiritual support - all geared to the patient's and family's wants and desires.
Our Hospice Seattle WA team collaborates with the patient and his or her physician to create a treatment plan tailored to the patient's specific needs.
The treatment plan is modified to accommodate the evolving nature of the patient's condition as well as the needs of family members and friends.
