Accredited Hospices of America provides the following levels of care to meet the needs of patients and their families. These levels include:
Care provided in the comfort and security of your home wherever you are – home, assisted living facility, or skilled nursing facility. A hospice nurse will work with a patient’s primary physician to bring the appropriate hospice services to your home. Members of a hospice team will work with caregivers to help them feel comfortable performing routine care activities.
Care provided when caregivers would benefit from short-term relief from the day-to-day care they provide at the home. This type of short-term care is usually provided at a skilled nursing facility for up to five days in a row.
