Haven Hospice Provides Comfort, Care and Compassion for Individuals and Their Families
Just a year ago, Maggie, aged 75, was managing the symptoms of a progressive, life-limiting illness with the help of her physician. She was active with her family and enjoyed working in her garden. Then one day, Maggie was admitted to the hospital, and after that, her visits to the emergency room began to increase. Over the course of four months, Maggie’s health deteriorated rapidly. Her husband, Charlie, and her daughter, Rose, began to feel the stress of being caregivers.
Maggie’s family didn’t know what the next steps were and turned to Haven Hospice for help. Haven visited Maggie in her home to evaluate the situation, discussed the goals of care with her and her family, and arranged for programs and services that will help Maggie, Charlie and Rose.
Maggie is now enrolled in hospice and currently receives hospice care in her home. She was taken off the medications that she did not need and her symptoms and pain are being managed. She is now alert and able to spend more quality time with Charlie and Rose while Haven Hospice staff takes care of Maggie’s physical and medical needs at home. Because she is on hospice care, Maggie does not have to leave the house for doctor's appointments because members of the Haven Hospice clinical team come to see her. Volunteers also come into their home to give Charlie time to go to the grocery store and run errands. Rose can focus on being a daughter again while a Haven Hospice Home Health Aide attends to Maggie’s needs. Charlie and Rose don’t have to bring Maggie to the emergency room or the intensive care unit since she has been enrolled in Haven Hospice services because Maggies plan of care is being managed by the Haven Team.
Now the three of them can focus on spending quality time with one another because Haven Hospice is providing the comfort, care and compassion that they all needed.
