Routine Home Hospice Care

General Inpatient Care

General Inpatient Care (GIP) is hospice care for short-term symptom management that cannot be controlled in a home-like setting and must be provided at an area hospital. The hospice clinical team members will make daily visits and communicate orders of care directly to the hospital staff.

Continuous Home Care

Continuous home care is hospice care provided short-term to manage pain and symptoms in a home setting for up to 24 hours a day for patients who do not wish to return to the hospital but require full-time symptom management.

Continuous Home Care is provided in the patient's home by the hospice clinical team only until symptoms are under control; then, the patient is transitioned back to Routine Home Care. 

Continuous Home Care symptom examples include:

  • Unrelieved pain
  • Severe nausea and vomiting
  • Severe shortness of breath
  • Severe anxiety or panic attacks


Continuous Home Hospice Care

Respite Care

Respite Care is hospice care available to provide temporary relief to the patient’s primary caregiver for a maximum of five consecutive days in a Medicare-certified facility; this can help prevent caregiver fatigue in some instances.
