Hospice care is a style of caring that emphasizes compassion and comfort for individuals who are faced with life limiting illness or injury. Often, hospice care involves a multidisciplinary team that work together to holistically address a resident’s needs. MDs, pain management specialists, spiritual and religious support, and caregivers all enter into this equation. The basic idea underlying hospice is that individuals should have the right to dignity, and should not have to constantly wrestle with pain. BRODA Seating offers a range of products, from our patented Comfort Tension Seating system, to the new BRODA app (additional positioning package) designed to deliver both comfort and dignity to hospice residents.
The emphasis of hospice is on caring instead of curing. Often in a hospice situation, a family member serves as the primary care giver and decision maker when it comes to dealing with the terminally ill. At the same time as family members get involved hospice also involves multiple professionals, including;
- Social workers
- Hospice workers
- Physical, Speech, and Occupational therapists
- And volunteers
Designed to deliver maximum comfort for residents, the BRODA app is ideal for hospice situations (as it can easily be implemented by anyone from a nurse to a family member). The app is a modular seating system with foam and waterproof fabric, designed for no-maintenance to deliver:
- Improved posture and alignment
- Back support
- Mild lumbar and lateral torso support
- Pressure redistribution to avoid pressure sores
- Infection control
- And overall improved comfort
When it comes to hospice, comfort is key – the BRODA app can help deliver safety, comfort, and ease-of-use for hospice residents and caregivers.
