Hospice Care in White Plains/Westchester County
It is common to think of hospice as a place you go to die; a place where the focus of care for your loved one shifts from providing medical treatment to keeping them comfortable as they approach end of life. It is a place meant to bring support and comfort not only to your loved one, but also to you and your family members.
Hospice care normally lasts six months or less. It is impossible for you to be with your loved one at all times so you may want to consider hiring a Neighbors aide to ensure that someone is always there to provide additional personal care, companionship and mental stimulation.
