The goal of hospice care is to make the patient feel more comfortable, more at peace, and more in control.
While the majority of hospice care is provided in private homes and long-term care facilities, there are times when the patient may benefit from more intensive medical management of symptoms or even a brief period of respite for their caregiver.
Your entire team was amazing. They are very professional in their work but also have big hearts and it comes through in how they do their work and in their positive attitudes.
Thank you for making your home like her home, warm and comfortable.
Your kindness and efforts go far beyond the patients and extend to their families and friends.
Everyone who cared for my wife was, without exception, caring, kind, and exceptionally capable individuals who seemed to truly care about her well-being and care.
Your staff (at Hospice Home) was confident, thoughtful, kind and very loving to my mom. When we couldn’t be there or take care of her needs, you took care of her.
My mother spent her last days in your facility. I want to thank you for the gifts you gave to her and our family. The dignity, caring, professionalism, and kindness will remain a bright part of our saying goodbye to our mother.
My family and I would not have made it without Hospice.
For many veterans, military service is the most important thing that they have done in their lives.” As part of We Honor Veterans, those patients are now paired with a volunteer who also served in the military and share a common bond.
Thank you for all of your care, concern, education and kindness during Mom’s last year. My grief journey has had a lighter backpack because of Hospice.
Their touch, their time, their words were the comfort of a lifetime.
We were privileged to have the support of (Hospice)…They nurtured and cared for my husband as if he was their only patient.
Me consuela saber que mi esposa tuvo los mejores cuidados gracias a Hospice. La ayudaron a ella y a nuestra familia en todas las maneras posibles.
I thank God for putting good people in the right job for people like me.
We were so impressed by your staff and your desire to help us. No one wants to need Hospice, but when a person does, it is a tremendous blessing. Thanks again for the care you gave my dad, and ultimately all of us.
I would like to say that you have a beautiful Hospice Home. It is so nice and serene. I love the “quiet spots” that you can go to and meditate. Thank you so much in helping make my mother’s last days on this earth a little better and comforting.
General Inpatient Care
General inpatient care is appropriate for patients who require frequent skilled nursing interventions for the management of symptoms and/or continuous monitoring. General inpatient care is also available if a caregiver is unable to care for the patient at home. Once the symptom is well-managed, the patient may return home or be eligible for residential care.
Medicare and Medicaid cover general inpatient care for eligible patients and many private insurance companies will cover some portion of care.
Residential or Transitional Care
Residential or transitional care is appropriate for more medically stable patients who have a prognosis of weeks or less, require more assistance than is available in their home setting or have a home environment not conducive to their care needs. This level of care is generally for patients expecting to move to another care setting, like a nursing home, assisted living facility or even their own private home.
Medicare and Medicaid only cover the medical care portion of residential care. At the residential level of care, patients are assessed a daily charge for room and board.
Thanks to the generosity of our donor community, patients may apply for a care subsidy which will fund all or a portion of room and board charges. Many commercial insurance plans will cover at least some of the charges for each level of care. Our referral team can assist each patient and family in determining available coverage and eligibility for our care subsidies.
Inpatient hospice care involves an interdisciplinary team of highly trained professionals who work together with the patient and family to develop a plan of care.
Care teams typically include:
Our referral team is available to assist families and their current care providers in evaluating care alternatives. Patients referred to Hospice Home at High Point will be served based on the immediacy of their needs and condition, rather than their place on the referral list.
