Managing Common Symptoms at the End-of-Life

Managing Common Symptoms at the End-of-Life

Striving for quality Home Health & Hospice in Kansas means providing the level of care only Providence Home Health and Hospice LLC can deliver.

We have helped countless patients and families with our Hospice Care Services – significantly improving their quality of life as they chose to. Providing care for the patient and their families under the challenging condition of a terminal disease requires comprehensive services to cover the patient’s unique needs at this stage.

As our Home Health in Wichita, Kansas offers a diverse range of services, we always consider what is best for the patient. In this stage, one of the many challenges in getting the quality of life is pain. According to a journal published in the American Family Physician, half of the persons in their last month of life experience forms of pain. While there are many different techniques to manage acute or chronic pain, it’s important to note that pain can be manifested socially, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually. The management of pain considers what kind it is.

Delirium and agitation are also common symptoms. When symptoms are not causing distress, conservative medication and calming procedures can be done. Your healthcare team is ready to administer medication when necessary.

Managing the symptoms at the end of life is not just about medication. It is about support, care, and love.
