Long Term Hospice Care

Long Term Hospice Care in Central Georgia

When patients are diagnosed with a terminal illness, we find that most just want to be comfortable. Hospice Care Options offers many solutions to provide our patient’s comfort, support, and pain management. Long-term care is geared towards chronic illnesses as well as terminal. An illness is considered chronic when the patient will live several or many years with us and needs certain care or accommodations, such as Parkinson’s Disease or heart disease.

Why is long-term care important?

Many patients with a memory loss illness, such as dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease, require long-term care due to the nature of their illness. They often feel like they need to get back to a certain time or place that is familiar to them, so door locks and alarms are used to help keep them from wandering off and getting lost or hurt. Without long-term care, these patients may attempt to cook, drive, or do other things that may be dangerous for a memory-impaired person to do.

There’s no place like home…or is there?

While patients are often most comfortable in their own home, sometimes that is not possible and we work to make any location “home”.

“Home” may be a private home, whether it is the patient’s home or that of a family member.

“Home” may also be at an assisted living facility, a skilled nursing facility, or when a higher level of medical care is needed, a hospital.
