When a loved one reaches the stage where curative treatment is no longer possible, a Caring Companions caregiver can improve their end-of-life experience and help keep them in the familiar home environment. By providing continuous, one-on-one hospice care, our skilled caregivers provide comfort and companionship, ensure optimal comfort and help promote dignity at this final stage of life — all while bringing peace of mind and respite for the family.
Keeping the Individual Comfortable
One-on-one companionship in the familiar environment of the home helps bring essential comfort and peace to an individual on hospice.
Turning the Bedridden to Prevent Bed Sores
In the final days of life, close attention to personal care is of utmost importance. Our caregivers will turn clients frequently to minimize bed sores and make sure they are as comfortable as possible at the end-of-life.
Simply having someone there with your loved one around-the-clock, or on an as-needed basis, provides much-needed comfort and compassion.
At the end-of-life, it’s common that one’s appetite will decrease, so it’s important to maintain the nutritional value of the food your loved one will consume. Our caregivers are trained to prepare healthy meals based on our hospice client’s needs and preferences.
Maintaining Personal Hygiene
We are committed to a dignified hospice experience in which we help our clients stay clean, groomed, and maintain their hygiene.
Hospice patients can often feel become depressed or even experience feelings of abandonment by loved ones. Our caregivers know how to provide the emotional support needed at this time.
Providing Status Updates
Our caregivers support the hospice agency or workers by providing status updates on the client’s condition. Our Care Team then communicates these updates to the family members.
Support for the Family After Their Loved One Passes
Our caregivers and hospice care team are experienced in providing appropriate support and resources to families after their loved one passes.<>

By conducting a comprehensive in-home care assessment, we are able to develop a very thorough care plan for each person, which includes placing a caregiver who matches the needs, lifestyle, and personality of the client. This relationship is critical, so we carefully work with the client over the first few weeks to make sure that the caregiver is a suitable match. If it doesn’t seem to be the right fit, we work personally with the client to find a different caregiver that more comfortably meets their needs and wants.
