Advantages of palliative care in a retirement home

Consider the advantages. Retirement homes in Mississauga have no wait times, they are staffed with professionally trained care workers, and they are far less likely to have a waiting list. Care offered in retirement residences here often includes the specific types of care associated with those in a palliative state; this includes assistance with feeding, bathing, and dressing and more delicate care needs.

Retirement residences offer a community of others of the same generation who may have related health concerns. As the old saying goes, "shared pain is diminished pain." Ailing seniors find comfort in community with others who share their background and their experiences.

Seniors suffering from Alzheimer's Disease or other deteriorative diseases may also benefit from moving into a care home with memory care facilities, ahead of the need for palliation. Familiarizing themselves with an environment and with care staff, your elderly loved one can let care staff know what they want ahead of time. Family can draw comfort from this development of a relationship between their loved one and the care staff around them. Thinking ahead like this creates an ideally holistic plan that deals with the disease optimally as it progresses, and anticipates the ultimate consequences, making the best of a bad situation.
