Palliative care is delivered when terminal patients have less than 6 months to live and desire to spend the time within their home or in a facility (such as a nursing home) with the support of an interdisciplinary care team. Comfort and pain relief are top priorities when caring for palliative patients. We know that when someone suffers from a terminal illness, it is a difficult time for family and friends, and we seek to ensure that a person’s final days with their loved ones are free from any unnecessary burdens so that they may experience comfort and peace of mind as well as derive the most enjoyment from their life as possible.
We provide specialized nursing services to the terminally ill and their families, including emotional support, case management, and liaising with government programs. Services are available for 24-hour care or any portion thereof. We will coordinate and supply medical equipment as needed.
Angels There For You™ care providers possess core assessment skills and can provide information on family coping skills to ensure that clients and their respective families are well cared for. Our palliative-care providers assist with patient and family communication in order to establish treatment goals while maintaining a collaborative relationship with the family members and primary physician. They are also able to provide for the patients’ daily hygiene needs as well as provide emotional support to the client and family members.
Angels There For You™ is also able to provide aggressive symptom management in collaboration with the hospital and/or primary physician when a patient is actively dying. In addition, we provide respite care as needed by the family.
Angels There For You™ knows what a difficult time this is for patients and loved ones and we will do our best to make the situation easier for all involved.
With the support of Angels There For You™ that has provided us care for all these ten years, my wife Ann and I were able to stay in our 50-year bungalow here in Richmond, BC. Today, my wife is no longer with me but I remain at home and can sleep in peace knowing that all my household problems are taken care of.
My siblings and I remain very pleased with the level of dedication the ATFY caregivers bring to the care of our father. We also remain impressed with the competence of all the workers.
I cannot thank the workers at Angels There For You™ enough for the exceptional care they have given my mother. In the hospital, the doctors told me she probably wouldn’t get much better but since she has been home with the loving treatment she has been getting, she has thrived beyond my expectations. I am convinced that never would have happened without these experienced caregivers. I believe I owe her well being to them.
