Inpatient hospice care is the ideal solution for many families and their loved ones, but we do understand that making such a transition can feel overwhelming. Inpatient hospice care gives your loved one access to medical and emotional support 24 hours a day, in addition to providing pain management and other palliative treatments. It can be impossibly hard to care for an ailing loved one on your own. Thankfully, you don't need to.
What is Inpatient Hospice Care?
Though it is always difficult to deal with the loss of a loved one, it is not always possible to care within your family home. Specialized medical equipment, round-the-clock treatment, and experienced professionals may be medically necessary to be able to deliver the best in comfort and care to your ailing family member. In addition to our pain management services, we work tirelessly to ensure the spiritual and emotional comfort of our patients.
What is Included in Inpatient Hospice Care?
Inpatient hospice care naturally includes 24/7 nursing care, room, board, and medical services and equipment that are necessary for your loved one to remain comfortable in their last days. Other services provided by inpatient hospice care include:
