In Home Hospice Care

in home hospice care

In-home hospice care is an increasingly popular home health service option that is available for anyone experiencing end-of-life issues, not just senior citizens. It allows people who have reached the end of their lives to remain at home while receiving the highest quality of life possible.

If you’re looking for the best in-home hospice care, Kinkaid Private Care delivers the highest-quality premium home hospice care in California.

What is Hospice Care?

Hospice care refers to an array of specialized health services people may choose to receive during their last few weeks or months of life. Specifically, hospice care is appropriate for those with 6 months of life or less remaining. Also known as end-of-life care, hospice care can be delivered in specialized facilities; however, more and more people are opting to receive hospice care in the privacy and comfort of their own home.

Hospice care is not curative; it is not aimed at stopping, slowing, or treating any disease or medical condition. Instead, hospice focuses on providing people with a high quality of life by controlling the symptoms of a disease or disorder. Pain management is also a major cornerstone of hospice care.
