Are you, or your loved one, counted in the 7 out of 10 people who would prefer to die at home?
Every day, Samaritan supports hundreds of families in achieving that desire. Since 1980, we’ve provided in-home hospice care throughout South Jersey – from Cherry Hill to Trenton, Atlantic County, and beyond. As South Jersey’s largest hospice home care service provider, Samaritan is here to help.
The goal of Samaritan’s care is not to cure a disease, but to control its effects so that patients can maintain their dignity and remain as comfortable, alert, and pain-free as possible in the place they live – whether that hospice service be administered at their South NJ home, an adult child’s home, assisted living community, or nursing home.
The experience of receiving hospice care at home is not familiar to many people. But, once someone accesses this service, they usually wish they called sooner.
At-home hospice care provides comfort care at the end of life where you or your loved one lives — home.
A South Jersey at-home hospice nurse visits your home to assess you or your loved one physically, develop a care plan, refill medications, tend to wounds, answer questions, and coordinate with your physician. The home health aide bathes you or your loved one in the privacy of their bedroom or in a hospital bed set up in your secluded living room. The social worker or spiritual support counselor chats with you and your family around the kitchen table or in the family room.
This intimate care, the emotional conversations, and the supportive medical attention occur in the comfort of your own home. Your surrounded by your familiar belongings. You won’t have to make emergency trips to the ER. You don’t need to navigate hospital parking, elevators, and hallways. Your family doesn’t have to share a room with another patient and their family. You don’t have to try to ignore the hustle and bustle of a hospital wing to have a quiet moment.
Spend quality time together. Creating additional memories and sharing important words is critical during this time.
