Recovery from illness, or living with a chronic, progressive condition, varies from person to person. No two people are alike and response to illness, as well as treatment, is rarely simple. Often there are cycles of being and feeling better and being and feeling worse, moving between multiple care settings, and utilizing a mixture of support services. Compassionate Community Care offers a variety of services to meet any need at any stage of illness or recovery.
The path taken depends on various factors unique to each individual, including:
- An individual’s ability to care for himself or herself without assistance.
- An individual’s goals for recovery, and where and how those goals will be best achieved.
- The services and supports available in one’s area, including home health care.
