"Professional and respectful care, encouraging attitudes, smiles, understanding and sympathy throughout the days of a terminal illness are what WesleyLife Hospice Care provided my loved one and my family. Their presence at the funeral and afterwards with personal visits, where they gave a listening ear and a shoulder to cry on, gave me comfort and strength to go forward with my life."

Support for Loved Ones

Are you a caregiver?

Caregiving

There are as many different types of caregivers as there are people lending a hand to assist a loved one, family member or friend. You may not think of yourself as such, but you are a central member of the team providing care and support.

In addition to traditional hospice care, WesleyLife Hospice offers a range of programs to meet your needs and the needs of the person you are caring for at different stages of illness and caregiving. Caregiver support is available to any caregiver within our service area -- and by phone if you are outside of the geographic service location of WesleyLife Hospice. The person you are caring for does not have to be a WesleyLife Hospice client.

One-to-one counseling is also available for persons adjusting to a new diagnosis or prognosis or living with a serious illness.

As an advocate for someone who is ill, you need to know about available care options. WesleyLife Hospice provides clinical care focused on supporting you and the person in your care to live each day to the fullest. Hospice care is not about giving up. It is about comfort, well-being and quality of life.

Grief support

Grief support

Although grief and loss are a natural part of living, we are never ready to lose a loved one. A great loss can seem overwhelming. Through one-on-one counseling, WesleyLife can aid you on your journey and equip you with the resources and support you need to move forward – one step at a time, one day at a time. For more information, contact Chaplain Elaine Jones at (515) 271-6777, or at rjones@wesleylife.org.

Wherever a beautiful soul has been, there is a trail of beautiful memories.
