Hospice Care Assistance | Wheaton DuPage IL

February 15th, 2012

BrightStar Care® of Central DuPage-Wheaton provides supplemental caregivers for hospice care. We work to provide team-oriented care in conjunction with the family and primary hospice provider to people with a life-limiting illness or injury. We help administer expert medical care, pain management, emotional and spiritual support to a person at end of life, as well as support to their loved ones.

When family caregivers can't be with their ill loved one due to work, distance, or simply because they are exhausted and need a break, families need to know that they have options. A supplemental caregiver or nurse from BrightStar Care can give families solace in knowing that their loved ones are being cared for, even when members of the family are not able to be there.

Often a family member chooses to be in the supportive role to their loved one by leaving the caregiving role to BrightStar Care.

What is Hospice Care and when it is an option?

Hospice care is a team-oriented approach for people with a life-limiting illness or injury.
It provides expert medical care, pain management, emotional and spiritual support to a person at end of life, as well as support to their loved ones.

Many people using hospice care have a cancer diagnosis. Sometimes people with diagnoses such as end-stage Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, lung disease, and a host of other diagnoses also receive hospice care.
