Understanding the Benefits of Home Health and Hospice Care Services

Home health and hospice care services improve quality of life for both those in need of care and those who love them.

When a loved one has been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, family members are often overwhelmed by a range of emotions, by the choices they need to make, and by the ongoing, everyday tasks that continue to vie for their attention. Perhaps the most important need is for both the individual and family members to know they have a trusted care partner to walk beside them through it all, and to offer the particular types of support they need most.

At Superior Home Health & Hospice, we understand the needs of both the individual and their family during such a critical time, and we’re here to help. With a customized blend of home health and hospice care services, individuals and their families can have all of their care needs met cohesively from one trusted source. Here’s how it works.

Hospice Care Services

Quality of life remains the top goal of hospice care services. Comfort, relief from pain, a listening ear and a shoulder to lean on are all available from our specialized team of professionals. Hospice care addresses a person’s individual needs, holistically: physically, mentally, and spiritually. The focus shifts from treating a disease to treating the person.

Each person’s end-of-life journey is unique, which is why our hospice team includes a variety of extensively trained and experienced specialists, all under the guidance of our hospice medical director, including:

  • Physicians
  • RNs
  • Social workers
  • Spiritual counselors
  • Dieticians
  • Bereavement counselors
  • Musicians
  • Hospice aides
  • Volunteers
  • And more

Hospice care includes 24/7 on-call care – so families always have access to the support they need, when they need it.

Home Health Services

Home health services allow for medical care needs to be met in the comfort of home. Those with chronic health conditions or who are transitioning home from the hospital can avoid the need for repeated trips back to the doctor’s office – something that is particularly beneficial with a life-limiting illness.

Our home health services can seamlessly transition to hospice care, allowing for consistent and cohesive care by a team of trusted care professionals who are already familiar with the individual and his or her needs and preferences.

With over 50 years of combined health care experience, and a proud recipient of the 2020 Small Business Excellence Award from the Lompoc Valley Chamber of Commerce, families have the peace of mind that comes from knowing their loved one will truly be receiving superior care – from home health through hospice care, every step of the way.

At Superior Home Health and Hospice, we work hard to ensure we’re providing the highest quality hospice and home care in San Luis Obispo, CA and the surrounding areas. Contact us online or call us any time at (805) 742-4514 to share with us the challenges you’re facing and to learn more about how we can help.
