Residential

 This is the routine home care benefit provided at the Hospice House. Patients and families who choose to stay at the Hospice House long term are responsible for the room charge at the current daily rate, please ask a team member for the current daily rate. The daily rate covers the room charge, house keeping, linens, and patient’s meals. Medicare continues to cover the medical care, medications related to hospice diagnosis, equipment, and supplies. Residential rooms are limited; this is based on need for GIP and respite beds.

General Inpatient

 There are guidelines for the use of General Inpatient. This is a short term stay at the Hospice House that may be utilized for teaching and symptom control; such as pain or nausea. This may also be a transition period from the hospital to our Hospice House. While at the Hospice House, both patient and family will be educated on symptom control, medications, and daily care of their loved one. This is a short-term stay, and once those goals are achieved the patient will return to their home setting.

Respite

 If the patient does not meet criteria to qualify them for inpatient care but the family is having a difficult time, respite care may be an option. If a patient’s family is the primary source of care and cannot meet the patients needs due to caregiver stress or other extenuating circumstances, a patient may temporarily be admitted to our Hospice House to give the family a needed break or respite. Respite is covered by most Hospice benefits and should be scheduled with your home hospice nurse or social worker. Respite care is limited to five consecutive days at a time. Once that period expires, the patient would return home and resume hospice home care.
