Ballinger Home Health Connection
How Will a Hospice Nurse Assist the Family?
At Ballinger Home Health & Hospice, we provide comforting and compassionate hospice care for patients as they conclude their lives. We know this can be a difficult time for the patient and their families, so our skilled nurses at Ballinger provide compassionate care and help families of hospice patients process their grief and discover a hopeful future. Here are some of the ways our nurses care for our hospice patients and families at Ballinger Home Health & Hospice:
At Ballinger, we provide a holistic approach to hospice and palliative care. We account for all aspects of a patient's life in our hospice services to relieve pain and suffering. This includes their social, spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being.
Helping our patients maintain their quality of life means everything to us. Ballinger's experienced nurses understand that this goal also extends to close family members and caregivers. Our hospice care nurses are kind and highly trained to provide comfort and support while administering medical care under the direction of your family doctor. Our hospice nurses provide ongoing evaluations and assessments to monitor each patient's condition. They share that information with the patient's loved ones throughout treatment. This helps family members make informed decisions about the patient's physical, mental, social, and spiritual care.
All Ballinger Home Health & Hospice nurses are registered and certified for hospice care in the state of Texas. They have been well-prepared to manage the challenges that can come with hospice treatment. With this training, our nurses can help patients and family members understand the care plan and prepare for the future.
