Routine Home Care
Our goal is to provide assistance to the care giving process wherever home is. Hospice services include care by knowledgeable professional members, the focus of care is to ensure the social, medical and emotional needs of the patient and family or caregiver. The family or caregiver also plays an integral part in the patient's care between hospice home visits. Home visits are comprised of a variety of factors based on the patient's needs with care available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
General Inpatient Care
During inpatient care the patient is typically staying at a skilled care facility. Under close care with a staff of professionals, the patient receives the best of care. In-patient care is typically short-term care with an emphasis on comfort for your loved ones.
Respite care is typically provided to allow family members or caregivers time to take a break from the daily routine of care giving, often referred to as the gift of time. Respite care is short-term care available at a hospice contract facility. Respite care is typically provided on an occasional basis for Medicare patients and for up to 5 days.
When the patient is in need of skilled nursing care to manage acute symptoms during a crisis period, we may recommend continuous home care for short periods. The hospice staff will coordinate and manage continuous home care until the patient's symptoms are brought under control. Some of the best reasons for continuous care rather than inpatient acute care include:
• Patient/family wishes to remain at home
