When people draw near to the end of their life, often they choose to receive hospice care at home with their loved ones taking care of them. A hospice organization can provide help, but the majority of care giving is done by family members.
Sometimes, family members are not able to give the end-of-life care at home that their loved one needs. That's where Country Comforts can help. Their loved one can move into our home where we will provide the skilled and attentive care they need.
Country Comforts is owned and operated by Mim Jacobson and Marian Korth. Mim is a registered nurse with extensive professional experience ranging from emergency rooms to nursing homes, from clinics to hospice care, from teaching nursing students to assisting in university research programs. Marian grew up on the farm where Country Comforts is located. She has a business background and takes care of the business details of Country Comforts. She also assists Mim with care giving as needed.
At Country Comforts, we lovingly and respectfully care for residents as they approach their final days on earth. We work together with a hospice organization of the resident's choice to coordinate a wide range of end-of-life issues - physical, emotional, spiritual, social, and legal. Our role is to support the resident and their family in any way we can.
Each resident has their own private room and bathroom. We provide medication management, whatever physical care is needed, and daily monitoring and most care giving by a registered nurse.
In addition to caring for their physical needs, we can provide assistance to residents in resolving any outstanding issues that may be troubling them. This may include listening with a sympathetic ear to any fears or concerns they may have, talking with them and their family about what to expect as their body weakens, and arranging visits with family, friends, and clergy. Family members are welcome to be here with their loved one as often as their loved one wishes.
