What is Comfort Care at Pleasantville Hospice?
At Pleasantville Hospice in Burbank, we pride ourselves on providing care for the whole person by tending to the patient’s spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical needs. Though each patient might have different needs in the aforementioned areas, above all, we aim to relieve any and all suffering as part of our end of life care. Broadly speaking, we provide this care through either palliative or hospice care. We understand the quality of life, which is why we strive to make it better for you or your loved ones on a daily basis at our nursing homes.
Often times, health professionals administer palliative care with the intention to relieve suffering rather than in an attempt to cure any underlying illness. As the end of life approaches, our team of health professionals work hard to ensure that our patient’s enjoy life by focusing on treatments which are most likely to reduce pain and suffering. Though the prognosis may appear grim, the patient’s outlook on life does not have to match the illness. We will ensure to do our best to lengthen the life expectancy of all individuals in this situation.
Though there are similarities between palliative and hospice care, there are important differences between the two types of treatment offered at Pleasantville Hospice. Generally, patients arrive in hospice care with a terminal illness in which a physician has determined there are unlikely any effective treatments. Our team of professionals recognize the importance of providing care for both you and your family. Our hospice care team wants to ensure that this period of time is the most comfortable for you, your family members, and your other loved ones. We do our best to provide a comfort care hospice, and by choosing our compassionate hospice, Burbank could soon be your home!
