Many people who have terminal illnesses consider hospice as palliative care. It’s a highly valuable form of care because of its pursuit of maintaining dignity and compassion for the client during end-of-life days. At Abbott Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, we take good care of our clients and their families, providing them privacy and counseling during this crucial period. Our Hospice Team may be composed of:
- The Resident’s Physician
- Hospice Medical Director
- Hospice Trained Volunteers
- Nurses and Nursing Assistants
- Pastoral Care
- Staff Social Workers
On the other hand, respite care is offered to family members who are caregivers. We accept residents who are looking for temporary living arrangements to give their loved ones a break from taking care of them. Respite care can reduce the family caregiver’s stress and give them time to do other activities such as exercising and shopping, as well as offer the residents themselves a change in environment and the chance to be cared for by professionals.
