BrightStar Care® of Honolulu provides compassionate, personalized care to people with a life-limiting illness or injury, in conjunction with the family and primary hospice provider. From hourly help to 24-hour support from our qualified RNs, LPNs, or CNAs, our BrightStar Care professionals are available to help you and your loved ones.
What is Hospice Care and when is it an option?
Hospice care is a team-oriented approach for people with a terminal illness or injury. Hospice care patients often include those with a cancer diagnosis, end-stage Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, and lung disease. There are several options for excellent Hospice Care Agencies in Hawaii, and BrightStar Care of Honolulu is pleased to work in conjunction with hospice professionals to ensure your famiies needs are met.
While the Hospice Care Agencies are able to provide weekly nurse visits and several bath visits each week, they generally do not provide consistent care for longer hours. That's where BrightStar Care's compassionate care professionals come in. We can help administer expert care as well as emotional and spiritual support to a person and their loved ones at end of life, as well as provide respite and peace of mind, during the day and/or night. A caregiver or nurse from BrightStar Care® of Honolulu 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.
Our nurses and care staff can:
- Provide respite care when the family caregiver needs rest
- Assist with personal care, including bed, baths, toileting, and personal hygiene
- Manage medication and pain comfort
- Provide companionship and enhance the home environment with tasks such as light housekeeping, meal preparation, and running errands
- Track meal intake
- Assist client to meet end-of-life goals
We would be honored to be a part of your loved one’s hospice care team. For more information, contact us at (808) 447-7448.
