Hospice Care in Vermont

What Is Hospice Care?

Hospice care is a type of healthcare meant for people living with a terminal illness. As the end of the individual’s life nears, hospice care professionals work to ensure they remain comfortable. Hospice care services are not intended to postpone death, but rather they mean to enhance the quality of the time the individual has left. At TLC HomeCare, we work to meet the physical, emotional, and social needs of your loved one during this challenging time.

Compassionate Hospice Care for Every Client

Hospice care is difficult for many people to talk about. After all, it forces us to confront the end of life and consider how a loved one should be provided for during their last days. We all want our loved ones to have the benefit of compassionate care in the end. At TLC HomeCare, our goal is to maximize your loved one’s comfort and quality of life, no matter their condition. Our caregivers are also ready to step in and help you navigate grief during this time. Our Vermont team is here to address any non-medical needs so you can focus on being with your loved one.

Benefits of Hospice Care

Hospice affords you and your loved one a slew of benefits. No matter how much time your loved one has left, it may be worth it to seek out quality hospice care services. Some of the benefits of hospice include:

Pain Relief

What Does Hospice Care Include?

The team at TLC HomeCare strives to provide comprehensive hospice care services for each of our clients. We know that each individual has different needs, so we'll work with you to create a customized care plan. That care plan might include the following services, among others:

Does My Loved One Need Hospice Care?

Anyone struggling with a life-threatening illness may be eligible for hospice care, and age does not determine eligibility. Hospice care services are especially necessary when the client wishes to stay in their own home as they reach the end of their life. Your loved one may need hospice care if they are to the point where their physicians are focused on comfort rather than a cure. We recommend starting hospice care when your loved one's illness is no longer controlled by treatment. As a general guideline, hospice care should begin when a person is not expected to live more than six months.
