Palliative Care

Foundations Senior Service

Supporting Well-Being Beyond Physical Health

When faced with a chronic illness, day-to-day living can present unique challenges. At Foundations Senior Services, we believe that holistic care goes beyond just addressing physical ailments. It’s about providing a nurturing environment that promotes overall well-being, ensuring that your loved ones are comfortable, content, and cared for.

Comprehensive Care for Whole-Person Wellness

Our palliative care approach encompasses:

  • Physical Comfort: Ensuring that individuals are free from pain and other distressing symptoms.
  • Emotional Well-being: Offering companionship, a listening ear, and emotional support to help manage anxiety, depression, or any other feelings that may arise.
  • Social Connectivity: Encouraging interaction, engagement, and connection to promote a sense of belonging and community.
  • Spiritual Peace: Respecting and addressing individual spiritual needs, beliefs, and customs, ensuring that their spiritual journey is acknowledged and supported.

Home: Where the Heart Finds Comfort

There is no place like home – it’s where memories have been made, and the heart feels the most peace. Our goal is to ensure that your loved ones can savor the comfort of their home, surrounded by familiar settings and cherished possessions.

Understanding the Difference: Palliative Care vs. Hospice Care

It’s important to clarify that while both palliative and hospice care provide comfort, they serve different purposes:

  • Palliative Care: This can begin at any stage of an illness, not just advanced stages. It focuses on relief from symptoms, pain, and stress, regardless of life expectancy.
  • Hospice Care: This is specific to individuals nearing the end of life, focusing on their comfort and quality of life rather than curing the illness.

End of Life Care: A Gentle Journey

For those nearing the end of their journey, we offer a specialized program that provides compassionate end-of-life care. We understand the sensitivity of this phase and ensure that our caregivers offer the utmost empathy, respect, and support.
