Deciding to move a terminally ill senior aged loved one to their North Carolina home and out of the hospital to receive hospice care or palliative care can be difficult. Becoming a caregiver of a senior aged person who is in the last stage of their life can be a difficult decision as well. Many seniors are grateful for the dedicated, caring compassionate caregivers that are able to care for them in the final stage of their lives. Family and friends of senior aged people who are terminally ill may let their emotions get the best of them and not be able to provide the care that is required for a senior's wellbeing. Being a caregiver in a hospice environment takes a certain degree of emotional strength, as many people are not accustomed to being able to care for someone for months and deal well with it when the patient passes away. Because hospice care is the care provided to terminally ill patients and the care in the final stage of a senior care plan, caregivers are accustomed to seeing and dealing with death.
Becoming a hospice or palliative caregiver in North Carolina also can mean having the strength and emotions to be able to avoid becoming insensitive to death and the dying process. Hospice care workers provide hospice and palliative care to the patient, but the care includes the emotional support and compassion offered to the family and friends of the terminally ill patient. Should a North Carolina caregiver in the hospice and palliative care field become numb emotionally to the feeling associated to the dying process, he or she will not be an effective hospice or palliative caregiver. In North Carolina, experienced and professional caregivers are available to provide sensitive compassionate, empathic hospice and palliative care to seniors and their families.
