Every year, Visiting Nurse Association of Ohio Hospice holds a holiday remembrance service to honor and remember those who have been loved and lost. The 22nd annual Light A Life event was held on Sunday, December 7, 2014 at VNA of Ohio’s administrative office and celebrated the lives of our loved ones.
As a loved one approaches end-of-life, they may no longer be able to make decisions regarding their healthcare. Making healthcare decisions can be overwhelming for family members, especially if there are no written or verbal orders or wishes set in place.
When an aging loved one has lost the ability to care for themselves, it becomes the duty of their family members to take on the caregiving responsibilities. When the role becomes too difficult or unmanageable for family members, determining the next step is often a challenge.
As a vital community resource, Visiting Nurse Association of Ohio is proud to care for our communities. We are dedicated to meeting the healthcare needs of patients and families and helping individuals achieve optimal health and well-being in the comfort of home.
For individuals nearing end-of-life, choosing where to spend their remaining time may depend on their particular situation. Often, there may be a predetermined hospice plan of care, but for some, families should consider their options before the time arrives.
