Hospice In-Home Care Services
What is Hospice In-Home Care?
Hospice in-home care services are specialized care services for individuals who are terminally ill. Hospice care is typically used for a terminally ill person who's expected to have six months or less to live. However, this doesn't mean that hospice care will be provided only for six months. Hospice care can be provided as long as the person's doctor and hospice care team certify that the condition remains life-limiting. Hospice care has been shown to help people who have incurable illnesses feel better and live longer.

Peace of Mind
Families who provide their own end of life care for a loved one often become overwhelmed. This can lead to "caregiver burnout", which is where family caregivers become emotionally detached and physically exhausted. When you use Affordable HomeCare to provide hospice care you can have peace of mind knowing that your loved one is being well cared for by professionals. This allows families to be more emotionally available for their loved one.
Hospice companies are a great resource for the terminally ill and their families because they can help with several aspects in regards to the end of life process. They help individuals with items such as; spiritual counseling, pain management, case management, after care and limited personal care. However, the amount of personal care a hospice company is able to provide is often not enough for what individuals need. Affordable HomeCare provides the personal care that hospice companies are not able to do. For this reason we are the in-home care company of choice for many well-known hospice companies in the metro Detroit area.
