There are four levels of hospice care. The level of care provided is based upon you or your loved one’s individual needs in the setting that is most appropriate and comfortable.
This level of care is provided in the patient’s place of residence in your private home, an assisted living community, a skilled nursing or long-term care facility, or another residential setting. Under routine care, you receive regular visits from members of your care team based upon your specific needs. As your needs change, team members adjust their visits to accommodate these changes to ensure optimal care.
General Inpatient Care is a level of care that falls under Medicare guidelines requiring the care by a Registered Nurse for 24 hours per day. These symptoms cannot be managed in a home and fall under Medicare guidelines of “Acute Care/Inpatient level” needs. The level of care is determined by Medicare guidelines and can change to Routine Home Care once the symptoms are under control. GIP can be utilized at our inpatient facility or in a hospital setting.
Respite care is designed to help meet the needs of the caregiver. The caregiver can request Respite care when they are ill themselves or have needs that pull them away from directly caring for their family member. The patient can stay at our inpatient facility for up to 5 days under Medicare guidelines at no cost to the caregiver.
Sometimes a medical crisis occurs that needs close attention. When this happens, skilled care may be brought into your home for up to 24 hours to possibly avert the need for a hospital visit. When the crisis is over, you can return to routine care.
