In the Comfort Life Spotlight

Hamilton and area families seeking palliative care for a loved one should consider a variety of options, with seniors' care homes near the top of the list. Retirement homes throughout Hamilton and the rest of the Golden Horseshoe offer an excellent alternative to more typical hospice care choices. These residences include dedicated onsite health care in an environment that is far more homelike than hospitals, long term care homes or other clinical settings.

Advantages of palliative or hospice care in a seniors' home

The environment of a retirement residence offers many advantages over other hospice care options you might hear about, when you contact the Hamilton Local Health Integration Network. Retirement residences offer a homelike setting combined with 24-hour nursing care, personal service workers and other on-call health care professionals.

Typical healthcare items you might find in a local retirement might also include adjustable beds, call bells and other clinic-like features. However, there may also be onsite "luxury" features you might not expect. These have additional worthwhile benefits and healthful effects; consider, for example, the beneficial effects of an onsite spa or whirlpool, massage therapy and other features. Many homes also welcome the idea of hiring in home care services to augment care they offer, ensuring that your loved one receives all the care and comfort they need.

Another less intentional advantage to hospice care in a Hamilton retirement home is the community of people the same age and at the same stage of life as your parent or loved one. In this environment, your aging loved one can find affinity with others and make the best of this time of passage.

There are many options in the city of Hamilton and area when it comes to palliative health care facilities. However, many of those places have waiting lists and other obstacles. Many care homes, like those listed above, are very welcoming, an under-the-radar option with many benefits. Learn more about all the benefits of contemporary senior living
