Location of Care

The choices of where to be cared for can be some of the most important decisions ever made for the end of life clients.  You can either be at your home, an Assisted Living Facility, Skilled Nursing Home or a Hospice House.

The interesting dilemma is when all the medications in the world do not bring comfort, but the environment in which you are living in brings the comfort.  Feeling safe, respected and cared for are unmeasurable assets!

There will always be pros and cons regarding where you live.  The financial cost will be a weighty factor, but there is no replacement for peace of mind.
