Routine Home Care
It is the most widely utilized level of hospice care and is provided wherever the individual considers home, including a private residence, assisted living facility, or nursing facility.
General Inpatient Hospice Care
This level of hospice care is short-term for pain and 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 Hospice Care
It is the level of hospice care that is 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.
