Dealing with a fatal disease is terrifying for anyone. Regardless of the survival chances, Avenir Hospice Care is here to provide our support. While we primarily focus on hospice care for end-of-life patients, we offer services that include palliative care as well. Like hospice care, palliative care focuses on managing pain and symptoms.
Benefits of Palliative Care
Unlike regular hospice care, palliative care is for patients that have a chance at remission or being cured of their affliction. This service focuses on aggressive therapies and other therapies that are dedicated to curing our patients. Non-terminal patients can benefit from our care, just like any of our other clients. With palliative care, you gain the chance to live a happier, longer life with your family.
While not terminal, your illness may still cause considerable pain and discomfort. That’s why it’s as essential that you get proper care just like any terminal ill patient. Our services include medical evaluations, prescribed medication, and physical activity. Our palliative care also provides emotional, physical, and spiritual support, social interaction, and guidance through the healthcare system.
With in-home palliative care, you maximize your comfort and convenience and minimize your stress. You also avoid extra costs, such as medical fees, hospital stays, travel, and other expenses. Avenir Hospice Care offers everything you need so that you don’t have to worry about anything while you rest and fight your illness. Even if you don’t want to have your care done at home, there are no worries. Whatever specified location you wish to be treated at, we’ll accommodate your medical needs.
A Serious Illness Doesn’t Always Have to be the End
Not every fatal disease is a guaranteed end. Heart diseases, Multiple Sclerosis, and HIV/AIDS are all examples of diseases that can be fought with the correct treatment. Our palliative care serves to manage the conditions of these diseases and prevent them from interfering with our patients’ lives. Hospice care focuses on the last six months of a patient’s life. In contrast, we can introduce palliative care at any stage of life and can make a difference in the patient’s condition. So call us today at (832) 766-0929 and find out what we can do to assist you in your fight against your disease. Our services are not limited to Houston, we proudly serve the areas of Katy, Sugarland, Pearland, Rosenburg, Richmond and Stafford.
