Support & Care For Families
Faced With End-of-Life Care
Caring for a loved one at the end of life, alone in itself, can be extremely difficult and stressful. But when family members are forced to becoming a caregiver for their loved ones, it can take an even larger toll on all of us.
Studies have shown an increasing burden on loved ones, especially spouses, that is putting many people to their breaking point. Some experts call this type of stress caregiver syndrome, as Dr. Andree LeRoy first mentioned it in an article he wrote for CNN.
Talem Home Care & Placement Services work alongside Medicare-approved hospice agencies to help relieve the stress and increase the comfort, support, and quality of life for those preparing for end-of-life care. Our additional support and assistance allow families to make the most of their time together. We provide support for family and friends during their most difficult times.
Expanding a family caregiver’s support system, getting help with caregiving tasks, finding sources of respite, and providing education and information to caregivers can decrease the incidence of this syndrome.
