Restoring a Sense of Control
Recreation is so important for those who are palliative or living in hospice care. It involves purposeful engagement in recreation and leisure interests (new or old) which can foster a continued sense of self and worth. The search for meaning, confronting fears, dealing with the loss of control are all considered in these unique visits.
Identifying ways to engage the individual’s negative feelings; threats to self esteem and help restore a sense of control, which all contribute to an improved quality for end of life. Our service can be provided in home or hospice, or long term care.
