End of Life Care in New York
Assisting Families with End of Life Care
End of life care can be difficult for the family members of patients because many are not ready to let go. Hospice and palliative care are focused on providing a comfortable transition from life into death rather than healing or curing. This difference is significant and looks very different to family and friends who want to do everything to save their loved ones. End of life staff are trained and experienced in providing the care necessary to allow your loved one to live out their last days as comfortable as possible and in a manner that they choose.
At Angels on Call Homecare, we believe that being at home is the most wonderful place to be. That’s why we bring quality end-of-life care to you. We can provide the around the clock care your loved one needs to ensure all of their wants and needs are addressed up until the moment they are gone.
In-Home End-of-Life Care Services Include:
- Personal care services
- Toileting assistance
- Pain management
- Housekeeping and meal preparation
- Emotional and social support
- Companion care
- Assistance with activities of daily living
- Respite care services

Helping Patients, Families, and Caregivers at Home
End of life care is perhaps one of the hardest times for families and caregivers. While most patients have come to terms that the end of their life is near, their loved ones often struggle to let go. At Angels on Call Homecare, we believe that there is no better place to be than at your home, even in death. Whether you are still living independently and anticipating the end of your life or you are a caretaker of a loved one who is nearing the end of their life, we can assist you with the transition.
For the dying and their loved ones, personal care becomes more difficult, both physically and emotionally. This is where in-home end-of-life care is invaluable. Our staff can assist with activities of daily living, mobility, bathing and grooming, toileting, personal care, meal preparation and feeding, medication assistance, pain management, and housekeeping. This allows the patient and their families to focus on the things that matter most, like spending each moment together and grieving the loss.
If you or your loved one has been referred for end of life care or you need support at the end of life, the staff at Angels on Call Homecare is here to help. Contact us to schedule your evaluation and begin your services today.

What to Expect From
In-Home Hospice Care
Pain and Symptom Management
As your loved one’s terminal illness progresses, pain and symptom management will be the primary concern for keeping them as comfortable as possible. Your loved one’s hospice care team will closely monitor their needs and create a treatment plan that is both in accordance with your loved one’s end-of-life care preferences and provides optimal comfort.
Assistance with Activities of Daily Living
Activities like eating, toileting, bathing, and dressing are all parts of our daily routine that may become harder for your loved one as the terminal illness progresses. Hospice care providers can help your loved one perform these daily activities in the comfort of home with dignity.
Psychosocial, Emotional, and Spiritual Support
It may be difficult for the terminally ill and their loved ones to deal with the reality of impending death. For complete holistic hospice care, our compassionate care team offers the support to help make the end-of-life transition as stress-free as possible while validating grief.
A peaceful death might mean something different to your loved one than to someone else. Whatever their comfort needs are, the hospice team can help. From warm clean blankets, to a hot pie from their favorite pizzeria, and everything in between, your comfort is our priority.

Hospice Care is For the Entire Family
While the main focus of hospice interventions is on the patient and their comfort, hospice care is for the entire family and support team.

Your hospice team is here to support the entire family. Beyond caring for your loved one, here are a few things that hospice offers your family:
- Grief and bereavement services
- Emotional and pastoral support
- Conflict resolution and mediation
- Respite care
- Peace and dignity
- Walking you through the process and what to expect
Whatever you and your family need through the hospice process, your home care hospice team at Angels on Call Homecare can help.
As people age, others tend to believe that they slow down and revert to the innocence of childhood and are somehow less cognitively aware.
