The fear of COVID 19 may have resulted in your older parent canceling medical appointments. Ensuring those with chronic or serious illness are getting the care they need can help keep you or your loved one out of the hospital. Missed appointments may make your loved one more vulnerable and more at-risk for complications. Missing appointments can allow symptoms to get worse and even lead to poor management of chronic disease, and that can decrease quality of life. Getting the right care is also important in controlling symptoms, pain and ensuring and sustaining quality of life. Hospice of Kankakee Valley can help your loved one remain at home, when home may be the safest place to be.
We can help your loved ones get the care they need. Safely at home for serious illnesses like: COPD, heart disease, cancer, dementia, kidney and liver disease.
