Pain Management

Easing pain is the process of bringing pain under control. Pain is a common problem with many people at the end of life and can actually accelerate the decline in health due to poor nutrition, depression, lack of social stimulation, and lack of exercise. If severe enough, pain can prevent patients from performing common daily tasks. Pain often:

  • Makes it difficult to sleep
  • Makes it difficult or impossible to pursue hobbies or personal activities
  • Causes chronic exhaustion
  • Can cause depression
  • Causes patients to lose their desire to eat
  • Makes it difficult to enjoy the companionship
  • Makes patients reluctant to move
  • Causes patient to isolate due to their disability
  • Causes Family and friends who are caregivers become exhausted and stressed

Personalized Care Tailored to Your Loved One

We believe in a personalized approach to health care. At Agape Hospice & Palliative Care, we understand that every patient and family is unique, which is why we provide a care plan tailored specifically to your loved one’s condition and unique needs. Our dedicated team at Agape Hospice & Palliative Care works together to address the physical, medical, psychosocial, emotional, and spiritual needs of both the patient and their family during the challenging time of facing a terminal illness and bereavement. We strive to optimize comfort and dignity according to the patient’s and family’s needs and goals, providing a roadmap to achieve the best possible outcomes. Our team, which is also known as an Interdisciplinary Team is made of the following:

  • Physicians
  • Nurse Practitioners
  • Registered Nurses
  • Licensed Vocational Nurses
  • Certified Home Health Aides
  • Social Workers
  • Spiritual & Bereavement Counselors
  • On-Call Nurses-24/7 Crisis Support
  • Volunteers

The care plan includes the scope and frequency of services to meet the patient’s and family’s needs and acts as an outline of the patient’s issues and what interventions or actions should be taken to achieve clear goals for each issue. The care plan will include medication or equipment orders for the patient.

In addition to the goals and wishes of the patient and family, the care plan will include:

  1. Interventions to manage pain and symptoms
  2. The frequency of services necessary to meet the specific patient and family needs
  3. Measurable outcomes anticipated from implementing and coordinating the care plan
  4. Drugs and treatments necessary to meet the needs of the patient
  5. Medical supplies and equipment necessary to meet the needs of the patient
  6. Documentation of the patient and family’s level of understanding, involvement, and agreement with the care plan.

Our care plans are updated regularly as the patient’s medical condition changes, or if the hospice team feels that certain changes may promote better outcomes. Because hospice care is not curative healthcare, the care plan goals are not designed to cure the patient’s terminal illness. Our goals are to relieve symptoms, reduce pain, and improve quality of life. Because we are experts at this, we will educate and give advice but ultimately the patient and family are the decision-makers.
