Harbor Light Hospice Cares for Dementia Patients

Highland Heights, Illinois (companies21) January 13, 2017 - Harbor Light Hospice is a national hospice provider committed to providing dignity and quality of life through excellent end-of-life care to dementia patients. They operate across 9 different states, providing the same level of expert care at all their locations. Dementia patients, as well as those afflicted by Alzheimer's, can be particularly difficult to care for - but Harbor Light Hospice has the training and experience necessary to make end-of-life for those clients as wholesome and painless as possible.

Harbor Light Hospice has a wealth of experience helping dementia patients. They work with dementia patients who want to remain where they are currently living but also offer inpatient services for those whose symptoms have become too severe. One of the biggest difficulties in dealing with dementia patients is that they can have a hard time telling others what their needs are. Harbor Light adjusts to this by tailoring a custom care plan that takes into account the individual needs of the patient. These plans are continually updated and reviewed by their care team to make sure patients are getting the care they need. They take into account the specific situation of the dementia patient, as well as considerations for the family including helping with financial concerns, respite care, and after care.

Harbor Light Hospice's care team is an interdisciplinary group that includes licensed practical nurses, certified nursing assistants, registered nurses, registered dietitians, speech, physical and occupational therapists. Chaplains or spiritual/faith advisors are also a part of the team - helping to maintain emotional and spiritual health. Oversight directors, trained volunteers, and social workers round out the extensive care team at Harbor Light Hospice. This wide range of experience allows them to provide exceptional end-of-life care and quality of life with a personal touch.

Harbor Light Hospice's team offers what they refer to as "compassionate care." Compassionate care means working tirelessly to provide top quality care and improve quality of life for people with life-limiting illnesses - allowing them to live the rest of their lives fully and comfortably. They provide on-site nursing, medication and medical supply/equipment management, counseling, therapy support, and other services to make sure their patients are well cared for.

Harbor Light Hospice provides first-class end-of-life care and services to dementia patients and their families. Their main office is located at 800 Roosevelt Ro. Building C Suite 206, Glen Ellyn, IL 60137. They can be contacted by phone at 877-416-9892. More information can be found on their website at https://www.harborlighthospice.com.
