Caring for a family member or friend is not easy, nor is it something most of us are prepared to do. Caregiving to someone who needs help often comes with new responsibilities and unfamiliar tasks, yet most caregivers receive no education or training. Entrust Hospice helps caregivers and families learn about the decisions that may have to be made to enhance a loved one’s quality of life. We can also arrange to give periodic respite to family caregivers.
Entrust’s customized approach to care extends to providing telephone support 24/7, visits by a registered nurse to monitor and manage symptoms, and access to a spiritual counselor to discuss concerns or distress. We help connect caregivers as well as patients with a range of social and psychological support programs such as music therapy and other life-enhancing programs.
