What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care is designed to help your loved one manage the symptoms of a serious or life-threatening disease like cancer, dementia or pulmonary disease. Unlike hospice care, palliative care can be given at any time and is for those still receiving ongoing treatment.

The role of our HomeWell agencies is to support your loved one’s palliative care team to complement their existing services, whether at home or in a facility. They assist with activities of daily living, helping take care of cleaning, meal preparation, bathing and dressing, medical reminders, feeding, hygiene, and more. The caregivers found at every HomeWell are dedicated to keeping your loved one safe and improving their quality of life at home as they receive medical care from your palliative care provider. 

Our agencies’ Care Managers and caregivers are specially trained in chronic disease support. You can rely on them to:

  • Communicate with your palliative care provider, learn your loved one’s care plan and alert their physician if their condition changes.
  • Help with meal preparation, light housekeeping, grooming and dressing, shopping, medication reminders and more—so that you can take a break to recharge or focus on quality time with your loved one and family.
  • Reassure, be present and provide companionship. HomeWell caregivers not only assist with daily tasks but also provide emotional comfort and create a more nurturing environment through holistic care that addresses all aspects of your loved one’s well-being.
