Routine Home Care
Patient at home with symptoms controlled
Routine strong home care treatment involves daily arranged appointments to discuss hospice patients and their caregivers’ physical, mental and spiritual needs. The team of hospice members travels to patients’ homes whether that is a traditional apartment, nursing home, assisted living or any other place. Support involves visits by nurses, home health assistants, chaplains of the hospice, social workers, clinicians and volunteers. Home emergency devices, prescriptions, personal supplies and 24/7 on-call nurse assistance are now available to patients.
Patient in a facility with uncontrolled symptoms
When the patient’s problem has gotten out of control and can no longer be treated at home, a hospice patient can need hospital treatment. If normal home nursing care does not control these symptoms, then the patient needs special treatment before these symptoms subside. In order to monitor the symptoms and keep the patient happy, hospices take proactive steps.
Continuous Nursing Care
Patient at home with uncontrolled symptoms
The tradition of providing hospice services at home around the clock is known as “continuous home nursing care.” Where medically required, members of the hospice staff work for a short period in shifts of up to 24 hours a day to help people stay at home during a stressful time, rather than being taken to a hospital.This intensive level of treatment is ideal when a patient has acute complications that the main caregiver can not handle.
