Preparing Ahead with Your Aging Family Members


Due to our familial responsibilities, we often find ourselves in charge of making health care decisions for our elderly family members.

Discussing senior and end-of-life care with your loved ones is a crucial first element in establishing these life-changing decisions.

Ask them questions and pay attention to what they have to say so you can figure out what the most critical issues are for them. The more time you give your loved ones to express themselves, the more clearly they will be able to convey their wishes.

Some might want to stay in their homes, while others may prefer to live in a nursing or assisted living facility because they value social interaction more than familiarity.

As a provider of respite care in California, our team also suggests thinking about whether your loved ones can live on their own or not since some may need round-the-clock medical care. In contrast, others may only need little to moderate help around the house.

Precisely knowing what your aging loved ones need enables you to assess the type of care and support you may need to provide.

We at AMERICUS HOSPICE, INC. are dedicated to providing you and your loved ones with the highest level of hospice care in Simi Valley, California, ‘till the very end.

We also offer different levels of care, including nursing care, social worker care, volunteer visits, spiritual or grief counseling, and many more. Get in touch with us today at 805-520-5863 to learn more about our services.
