Palliative care

fosters a sense of peace and well-being, regardless of life expectancy, to enhance quality of life for individuals and their families.

While most people use the terms “hospice and palliative care” mutually, these two are different services.

Hospice and palliative care have many similarities. At their core, both seek to relieve pain and discomfort. Hospice care, however, is typically reserved for those who are nearing the end of life.

Palliative care is for individuals who need:

  • Assistance for aging or chronic care concern
  • Physical, emotional, spiritual, and social care
  • Personal home care services in their home

ExpectComfort has a dedicated, compassionate palliative care team that accomplishes all this and more.

ExpectComfort, rooted in a traditional model of palliative care, enriches the quality of life for all clients through specialized, personal home care and assistance.

Do I qualify for Palliative Care?

Our palliative care focuses on the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of the elderly. The program goes beyond what many people think of when they hear “palliative care,” providing help and comfort regardless of life expectancy.

The program trains caregivers in a philosophy that is supportive, soothing, comforting, and approaches care with a holistic mindset. We approach care with a mission of restoring hope and assisting with healing.

We focus on a wide range of care by addressing:

  • Physical needs
    Recognizing and responding to signs common among the elderly, providing essential personal home care to comfort our clients
  • Emotional needs
    Adopting a compassionate approach, supporting seniors who may be suffering from depression, loneliness, stress, or anxiety
  • Social needs
    Building relationships with our clients and their families, and by providing those in our care with companionship and conversation
  • Spiritual needs
    Restoring hope to their lives, helping them find comfort and relief from age-related difficulties and treating each client with dignity and respect
