Home Hospice Care Offers Autonomy, Cost-Effectiveness, and More Time with Family

Sponsored Content provided by Tim Brooks - President, Healthkeeperz, Inc.

End-of-life should be a peaceful time, not a stressful one. Since home hospice care is more cost-effective than hospital or facility-based care, it can help ease the financial burden for patients and their families while maintaining a high standard of care.

A second-generation family business headquartered in Pembroke, North Carolina, HealthKeeperz provides a comprehensive inventory of home medical equipment, case management services for disabled adults, and in-home hospice care.

Our hospice staff includes skilled nurses, physicians, and nurse practitioners, as well as pastoral care, medical social work, a bereavement program, and more. Our mission is supporting patients’ independence by helping them remain at home where they are most comfortable, while maintaining access to necessary medical equipment and end-of-life care. The home environment can enhance patients’ sense of security and preserve their dignity during a challenging time.

The HealthKeeperz team respects our patients’ autonomy in making choices regarding treatment options and interventions. When curative treatments are no longer desired by patients and their families, HealthKeeperz staff is there to provide not only physical care, but also emotional and spiritual support to patients and their families. Our home hospice care doesn't end when our patient passes. Our home hospice teams provide grief counseling and support for family members and caregivers to help them cope with their loss and navigate the grieving process.

Personalized care is another benefit of home hospice. Our home hospice team tailors its care services to the individual needs and preferences of the patient, ensuring each patient's physical, emotional, and spiritual needs are met according to their wishes. Our team is equipped to assist with pain management to ensure patients experience minimal discomfort during their remaining time. 

Family members also can more actively participate in caring for their loved ones in a home hospice setting, allowing patients to enjoy more time with their family and friends sharing meaningful moments in a private setting. Meanwhile, the coordination among our home hospice care team ensures continuity of care for our patients.

Hospice care is not about hastening death, but rather about providing comfort, support, independence, and dignity to patients and their families during a difficult time. HealthKeeperz home hospice care offers a compassionate, affordable, and self-directed approach to end-of-life care, allowing patients to be in control of their final days and fostering a sense of dignity and peace during this challenging time.
