Maintaining Connections During COVID-19 with the Help of Compassus

Social health is just as important as physical health. It’s why maintaining meaningful connections is a priority for Compassus. We understand how hard it can be to connect with friends and family when receiving hospice care at home during the pandemic, but we’re here to help bridge that gap. 

Connecting While at Home

As hospitals stop allowing visitors during the COVID-19 crisis, hospice provides quality care at home with family. Our hospice clinicians offer spiritual guidance with compassionate phone calls, email, or video conferencing. Spiritual guidance can be crucial in maintaining meaningful connections during the pandemic. Virtual spiritual guidance can provide socialization even when preventative measures for COVID-19 are stringent.

We also ensure that patients remain active and engaged during their end-of-life journey by providing activities such as art therapy and music therapy which can help make a meaningful connection with loved ones even during the pandemic. 

Socializing Safely

In isolation, patients get disoriented. They need socializing as part of their care. Hospice allows patients to continue with activities that can help with a feeling of normalcy and connect them with others during the COVID-19 crisis.

However, hospice patients must also create and implement preventative measures for their homes. For example, perhaps only close loved ones may visit them for socializing, especially if they’re not feeling well. Other examples may also include the following:

  • Masks must be worn by all family members, visitors, and caregivers
  • Social distancing when possible
  • Temperature checks of everyone that enters the home are necessary

Our team can help you implement these rules or discuss which measure you need for your particular case. Compassus is here to help maintain meaningful connections during the pandemic so our patients can continue living their life with quality care and support while maintaining a sense of normalcy in their daily life.

Finding Meaning

We always look for the one thing at every visit to connect patients with something they enjoy and are meaningful for them, like family and hobbies, to improve their happiness and well-being. After all, personal satisfaction is critical to happiness.

The foundation of happiness in personal satisfaction aligns with “Care for who I am.” Compassus has a unique care delivery model that focuses on each person as an individual and a patient. This model is meant to improve the quality of life of each of our patients in a meaningful way.
