with compassion respect and dignity.

Hospice is a program of health care and services designed to provide comfort and support to patients and their families when a life-limiting illness no longer responds to cure-oriented treatment. Hospice care is sensitive to the unique needs of each patient and family. It considers the entire family, not just the patient, to be the unit of care. Under hospice care, patients and their families will have the opportunity to prepare for the end-of-life experiences with dignity.

FAQs

How does hospice “manage pain”?

Hospice believes that emotional and spiritual pain are just as real and in need of attention as physical pain, so it can address each. Hospice nurses and doctors are up to date on the latest medications and devices for pain and symptom relief. In addition, physical and occupational therapists can assist patients to be as mobile and self sufficient as they wish, and they are sometimes joined by specialists schooled in music therapy, art therapy, massage and diet counseling. Finally, various counselors, including clergy, are available to assist family members as well as patients.

Who can refer a patient to hospice?

Anyone can refer a patient to hospice. Our hospice agency will work with you and your physician or the hospice physician to coordinate care.

Who can receive hospice care?

Any person facing the advancing stages of any terminal illness is eligible for care. Hospice care is appropriate when the following conditions are met:

The physician thinks that the patient will live 6 months or less if the disease runs its normal course; aggressive treatments are not working or providing relief to the patient; and the patient, family and physician agree and understand that the focus of care is on comfort (pain control and symptom management), not cure.

Where is hospice care provided?

Hospice is a philosophy of care, not a place. Most hospice patients receive care at home or at the home of a relative or friend. Hospice care can also be provided in long term care facilities and nursing homes.

4 Levels of Care

Routine Home Care

Patient at home with symptoms controlled.

Read More

A patient will be placed at this level of care if he or she resides at home (or a long-term care facility) and does not have symptoms which are out of control. These symptoms could include—but aren’t limited to—severe pain, continuous nausea and vomiting, bleeding, acute respiratory distress, and unbearable restlessness or agitation. A patient at this level has access to the following services:

  • Registered Nurse Visits
  • Social Worker Visits
  • Chaplain Visits
  • Home Health Aide Services
  • Counselors
  • Medications
  • Equipment

The needs of the patient determine the number of visits from hospice staff members. These needs are established and outlined in a plan of care formed by the hospice team and the patient’s physician. The care plan serves as a guideline to assist all those serving the patient with care. At this level of care the patient also has access to an on-call hospice nurse twenty-four hours a day.

Inpatient Care

Patient in facility with uncontrolled symptoms.

Read More

A hospice patient may require inpatient care when his or her symptoms have gotten out of hand and can no longer be managed at home. When these symptoms cannot be controlled on routine home care, then the patient requires extra attention until these symptoms subside. Hospices take aggressive actions to control the symptoms and make the patient comfortable. In order to do this, the patient may be temporarily placed in a hospice home or an acute care hospital. At this level of care, a moment-to-moment assessment of what’s happening and what needs to be done takes place. The hospice team and the patient’s physician work together to ensure the patient obtains and maintains a tolerable comfort level. Once this has been achieved, the patient will return home and back to routine home care.

Respite Care

Patient at facility with symptoms controlled.

Read More

A patient may be moved to respite care when the caregiver needs a break. Many hospice patients live at home, with their family providing most of the care, sometimes around the clock. Caring for their loved one can be exhausting and very stressful. The family members and/or caregivers need time to themselves and it’s important that they take that time. Respite care allows a patient to be temporarily placed in a facility with 24-hour care so the family can rest. If the patient is willing and the family requests it, hospice must provide placement in a facility or a hospice home for the patient. The patient will be transferred to the facility, and according to Medicare regulations, can stay for up to five days before being transferred back home.

Continuous Care

Patient at home with uncontrolled symptoms.

Read More

A patient would receive continuous nursing care if he or she has symptoms that are out of control and choose to stay at home. This is similar to inpatient care, except that the patient remains in his or her home instead of being placed in a facility. A hospice nurse is required to provide continuous around-the-clock nursing care if the symptoms cannot be controlled while on routine home care. It is designed for short-term periods to manage acute medical symptoms.

Chaplains

The patient’s primary physician is contacted to assure eligibility for services and hospice nurse will perform assessment to see if patient meets criteria for hospice.

"They did a wonderful job, specially Mimi. She went above and beyond her call of duty, i could have easily placed my mom somewhere else since i live 3000 miles away. But Mimi said she personally wanted to take care of my mother and she did. I could not have asked for a better hospice other than renaissance hospice."
