Our Family’s Home offers the highest quality compassionate care for individuals who are facing a terminal, serious, or life-limiting condition, in and around the Ford City region who can benefit from Hospice or Palliative Care services. Working with local Hospice companies of the families’ choice, complete support is provided for the resident, as well as the family, and includes:
Each patient’s plan for comfort care is designed specifically in consultation with the patient and his/her physician, primary caregiver, and/or family. Our goal is to ensure that the universal right to die pain-free and with dignity is preserved. By supporting the family, we help ease the transition for all.
If you are wondering if hospice care is the right choice for your loved one, there are a few factors to consider. If a terminal condition is present (the patient is clearly not going to survive the illness or condition despite any degree of medical intervention) and the decision has been made to stop active medical treatment, hospice care is the compassionate choice. Instead of inflicting uncomfortable/painful procedures on the patient, we focus instead on providing comfort care. Our goal is to help make our hospice residents’ final days as pain-free, pleasant, and dignified as possible. We work as a team with your hospice provider. Staff members (including an RN) are available 24/7 at Our Family’s Home.
We also provide palliative care for individuals with serious illnesses. Like hospice care, the goal of palliative care is to provide comfort. However, palliative care is available to residents who are still actively fighting and treating the disease or condition that is causing pain/discomfort. Palliative care can begin at diagnosis and helps ensure that optimal comfort is achieved throughout the period of medical treatment. Symptom, stress, and pain relief are provided to improve the resident’s quality of life.
