How We Care for Hospice Patients
Supporting Individual Nutrition
Here at Orchard Living View, we tailor nutritional care to the needs of each patient. Our caregivers work with each hospice patient to support how much and how frequently they would like to eat and drink. When caring for people at the end of life, it is important to not force or restrain food. Our team helps patients follow a nutritional plan that best fits their body’s needs during hospice care.
Creating Engaging Activities
Engaging activities make the hospice journey better for patients and their families. Our caregivers help enrich people’s lives by providing appropriate activities for their individual situations. We listen to music with them, read, talk, and help with small activities around the house.
Providing Incontinence and Personal Care
For hospice patients, unexpected bowel movements or urine leaks can embarrass them and impact their quality of life. Our caregivers understand how to help patients manage incontinence issues while ensuring they maintain their dignity and self-respect. We also assist patients with carrying out personal care tasks such as bathing, dressing, and hygiene.
Offering Reliable Transportation
Having comfortable, reliable, and pain-free transportation is so important for hospice patients. Our caregiving team has years of experience in safely driving patients to doctor’s appointments, pharmacies, and more. We work hard to support our patients with everyday errands and provide the best possible transport for their individual needs.
