Taking care of a terminally-ill loved one can take a physical and emotional toll on a family caregiver. Having someone who can help is important to ensure that the patient is in good hands and also to allow the family caregiver to have some rest. A visiting hospice nurse can help by providing the following services:
- Medical assistance.
Our nurses have undergone the required training and have passed the test to become registered nurses. With their medical knowledge and experience, a hospice nurse can make sure that your loved one is receiving the professional care that they need to get better.
- Supplement care.
A hospice care manager or your sick loved one’s physician will develop a personalized care plan to address their specific palliative care and assistance needs. Our visiting hospice nurses will provide the supplemental care they need while at home.
- Follow-up duties.
Our nursing service in California can provide follow-up care when your ailing family member has been discharged from the hospital. Our nurses can do follow-up routine duties such as checking blood pressure, administering medication, treating wounds, and documenting the patient’s vitals.
