Routine home care is provided by Hospice of Grace in the patient’s place of residence. The care is delivered by a specially trained and compassionate staff of medical, spiritual and social work professionals and volunteers.
Some patients may have symptoms so severe that they cannot get adequate treatment at home or they may feel more comfortable getting treatment at an inpatient facility. For these patients, inpatient care may be an option.
Respite care is available to the primary caregivers and family in need of rest from caring for the patient. There are several local nursing facilities, as well as private respite homes available for respite care.
Serious illnesses require more than just care, they require comfort, too. Palliative care is provided to people living with serious illnesses, to relieve pain and other symptoms and to improve comfort and quality of life.
On occasion, a medical crisis can occur which requires close medical supervision. Hospice of Grace has the ability to provide continuous, around-the-clock licensed nursing care for a hospice patient so they can avoid hospitalization. Once the medical crisis is over, the patient can return to routine hospice care.
