Southern Louisina Hospice Care

Doctor Managed Hospice & Palliative Care

The people who reside in southern Louisina are known for their civic pride, generous nature, and strong family bonds. When challenging times happen, the citizens of Louisina have a reputation for coming together and helping one another, just as they did when Hurricane Katrina rained destruction upon Southern Louisiana’s parishes. Regrettably, life is full of storms, and while the forces of nature cause most storms, others are simply a part of life. Likely none more heartbreaking than when someone we care about develops a terminal illness. Even so, these storms happen to every family. Inevitably, we all will need to cope with the death of the people we love because all of our lives will ultimately come to its end.

When someone we love is reaching the end of their life, many of us are poorly prepared and often at a loss as to where to go for the guidance we require to help us traverse this challenging and often unfamiliar aspect of life. In most circumstances, hospice care is the answer we are in need of to help us through the difficulties of attending to our loved ones 24 hours a day.

Most Louisina natives probably think that hospice is a facility that sick people go to pass away. But, hospice is not a place, and it is not about dying. In reality, hospice is a compassionate, holistic medical treatment which improves the quality of life for the people in our care and their family caregivers. It also permits individuals that have a terminal illness to experience the best quality of life attainable in the time they have left.

Hospice also allows people approaching the end of their lives to continue to  reside in their homes with their loved ones nearby them. In fact, nearly 90% of the folks who embrace hospice as a treatment continue to remain in their residences until their passing. It doesn’t matter if they live in a house, a retirement community, or an apartment because hospice is almost always conducted in a patient’s home, regardless of where they call home. Hospice Associates’ specialized staff will travel to your home and deliver the compassionate care you or your loved one needs, and we will do it whenever you or your loved one requires it, anytime, 24 hours a day. Hospice Associates is always just a phone call away.
