The FDA has recently approved a second booster of either the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines for individuals who are 50 years of age or older. Since older individuals generally are at a higher risk of infection, and may experience more severe symptoms if they catch COVID-19, the vaccine boost is intended to ensure those at a higher risk are still protected.

In-Home Care vs Assisted Living: What's Right for My Loved One?

Mar 23, 2022 8:15:08 AM / by Pacifica Senior Living posted in Healthcare and General News, Assisted Living, Home Care

For many people, there often comes a time when a close relative is no longer able to live successfully on their own. This often opens a confusing can of worms as families try to determine what course of action is best for their loved one. With so many options, such as in-home care, agencies, family caregiving, and nursing options, it can be hard to know where to start. On top of that, there are so many aspects of care to consider. Caregivers may need to ensure a loved one receives proper nutrition, will have to consider medication management, or might have to factor in mobility issues. All these factors can be overwhelming, and often families do not know where to start.

World Hospice & Palliative Care Day

Oct 17, 2021 10:30:00 AM / by Pacifica Senior Living posted in Memory Care, Healthcare and General News

0 Comments

World Hospice and Palliative Care Day was recognized on October 9th as a way to bring attention to the important role end-of-life care plays in an individual’s comfort during the final stages of his or her life. 


Hospice care saw its first iteration in 1967, created by Cicely Saunders in England as an effort to establish end-of-life-care practices. Her philosophies spread overseas to the United States, where similar practices were implemented. 


In 1987, Dr. Declan Walsh established the first hospital-based palliative care center in Cleveland at the Cleveland Center. When Medicare authorized formal hospice care in the 1990s, providers across the nation began to make larger strides in the field of palliative care. World Hospice and Palliative Card Day was established in 2005, and has been celebrated across America in the nearly two decades since. 


On World Hospice and Palliative Care Day, we at Pacifica Senior Living take a moment to celebrate our hospice and palliative caregivers. Palliative caregivers go above and beyond to help their residents feel comfortable and at-ease during their stay in hospice, creating a soothing transition for those living with terminal illness. 


We invite families to learn more about our hospice and palliative care options by chatting with us below. When our communities are not able to provide palliative care, we are happy to help families make arrangements with nearby providers. We believe all individuals deserve access to quality palliative care, as it serves a vital role in a person’s life as they approach its final stages. 


To learn more about our  hospice and palliative care options, reach out to a community near you. We look forward to serving you!
