Life is precious
So often we see the end of life as the worst thing possible, but it doesn’t have to be. How would you like to live out your last days?
We believe that everyone deserves to live out their last years, months, weeks or days with dignity and grace. While it’s something we never want to face, when it’s here, we want to make the most of it.
If you find yourself in a position to plan for this time, it’s such a unique blessing - not everyone gets that luxury. GYC invites you to let us help you handle this time with style and grace, ensuring that your loved one receives the highest care and attention they deserve.
What you need to know
As this final stage of life approaches, it may become evident that even the best care and treatment can no longer prevent the inevitable.
When this happens, there is usually a shift to keeping your loved one as comfortable as possible, in order to make the most of the time they have left. Depending on the nature of their illness and other circumstances, this period may be short, or it may be months or even years.
Whatever the case is for your beloved, the comfort care provided in end-of-life care can help control pain and other symptoms, ensuring the highest possible quality of life in these final stages.
Make the most of this time
While there isn’t a set point in time to transition, here are some guidelines we hope will help:
- Your loved one has made several trips to the emergency room, but their condition continues to progress, significantly affecting their quality of life.
- They’ve been admitted to the hospital several times in the last year with the same or worsening symptoms.
- They wish to remain at home, rather than spend time in the hospital.
- They have decided to stop receiving treatments for their disease.
- In many cases, a doctor may give an expected timeline, or even suggest it is time to begin planning for end-of-life care.
Make the most of this time
You or your loved one may not be ready to start this type of care, although there is certainly a reason you’re here..
We want to encourage you to take whatever steps you feel are necessary sooner than later. No one can predict for certain when those last precious moments will be.
If you’ve made it this far, your love and care for your loved one are very evident. Thank you for being one of the good ones, for looking into giving your loved one the comfort, dignity and care that they deserve.
