Hospice Family Care: A Three Part Video Series
Brighton is proud to bring you this short, three-part video series, giving insight to the hospice experience through the eyes of those most affected by it: the patients’ families. In these videos, Scott Sater talks openly about how his mother’s final months affected him, and how Brighton Hospice was able to not only care for his mother, but her whole family as well. At Brighton, hospice family care and patient care are one and the same.
Brighton Changed My View of Her Death – Part 1: Hospice Family Care
Delores was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia and died at the age of 88. Her son, Scott, explains how Brighton Hospice was there for him as well as his mother. “My mother’s death changed my life… but Brighton changed my view of her death.” – Scott Sater
Brighton Gave My Family Strength – Part 2: Hospice Family Care
As Delores’ physical condition began to decline, her children realized they needed help to provide her a higher level of care. What they didn’t realize, is how much Brighton would care for them, too.
Brighton Knew Her as Well as We Did – Part 3: Hospice Family Care
A lot of people are in the dark about what hospice can provide. Scott explains how Brighton cared for both his mother and himself in ways they didn’t even know they needed. He felt that the staff at Brighton Hospice came to know his mother as well as her own children knew her.
Hospice family care is as important as the care we provide for the terminally ill. This is because the family is essential to the patient’s quality of life and comfort during this final stage of their journey. Brighton educates the family on how they can promote the quality of life for their loved one. They are guided through the dying process, taught what to expect, while also being informed about exactly what their loved one is going through in regards to their specific illness. In hospice family care, Brighton’s chaplains, nurses, social workers, and entire staff are available to support and uplift the family members during this difficult time in their lives.
