An inevitable part of geriatric care management is end-of-life care.
End Of Life Care
Our clients have a variety of issues and circumstances to address but, in virtually all cases, the single most important issue is the dignity and self-respect of the client.
At the beginning of care management services, we begin regular family meetings that establish a safe environment where plans, decisions, conflicts and grief issues can be discussed honestly and openly. When end-of-life draws near, the goal of these meetings evolves from ensuring dignity and quality of live to helping to ensure continuity of family support.
Why Choose Us
During this process, there can be a lot of questions. We want to relieve any fear and confusion by explaining issues, expectations, and communicating openly with families.
Mediation of Regular Family Meetings
In this difficult time, it is important that the family can candidly discuss plans, decisions, conflicts, and grief issues honestly and safely.
At Family Connect Memory Care, we advocate for our clients so they can feel comfortable and dignified throughout the end-of-life process.
