Patients dealing with extremely painful medical treatment for life-limiting illnesses seek hospice care to bring ‘normality’ to their life. Hospice care is not a cure for any illness but it helps provide medical care and comfort to the terminally ill.
Sahara Hospice in Houston offers patients a way to ease the pain during their last days.
Improving The Quality Of Last Days
Heavy medication and agonizing surgeries affect the quality of life of a patient.
Everyone deserves to spend their time in the world in the most cherishable way — especially their final days.
At Sahara, we ensure a person is well-looked after and is able to make the most of their remaining life.
Starting Hospice Care
As long as there is a reasonable chance of recovery, general medical procedures should always be pursued.
But we do not recommend prolonging medical care if it is not helpful for the patient.
Hospice is not accepting defeat or losing hope.
In fact, with end of life care, we want to make a patient’s final moments easier; not attempt to delay or bring them forward.
Wholesome Hospice Services
For Sahara patients, hospice in Houston is a holistic care experience.
The attending hospice nurse or professional offers the patient palliative care i.e. managing the symptoms of the disease.
We help relieve the symptom pain and calm the patient so they are not constantly battling their illness.
Many patients wish to connect with their spiritual side or engage in religious practices for peace and solace.
Sahara hospice nursing caters to these needs to provide mental and physical comfort to patients.
Keeping Family Close
During illness, patients prefer having family members around.
With in-home hospice care, loved ones can stay with the patient, while Sahara tends to the medical care.
