During November the home care and hospice fields honor the millions of nurses, home care aides, therapists, and social workers who make a remarkable difference for the individuals they serve. This year’s theme: the theme, Home Care and Hospice Deliver Freedom, helps to spread awareness about the choices we have with recovery, chronic pain and illness, palliative care and support at the end of life.

Jennings caregivers bring personal warmth to the daily work of giving personal care and assistance. Likewise, Jennings Home Care and Jennings Hospice staff play an invaluable role as caregivers, companions, and friends. Home care and Hospice both provide comfort and relief in an individual’s own home and enables you to make choices about your care. Services are tailored to each individual, such as medical and nursing care, emotional care, pain management, spiritual guidance and bereavement care.

Jennings Home Care can assist you with recovery in the comfort of your own home, for ex-ample after a hospital visit or short-term rehabilitation. The staff helps you meet your well-ness and recovery goals at home, where you are in your most familiar environment. As individuals recover with new routines or needs, Jennings Home Care can make additional recommendations to help a person retain their level of independence.

Judi Makan, Director of Jennings Home Care and Administrator of Jennings Hospice stressed that hospice is not a preparation for death, but rather a celebration of life that recognizes the final phases of life and helps individuals transition in a comfortable and dignified manner. She said, “At Jennings Hospice, we strive to treat all hospice patients as if they were our own family members. The addition of hospice enables Jennings to provide each individual dignity and comfort at the end of their life.”
