The most common level of hospice care provided to patients with limited life expectancy. Routine Hospice Care includes, but is not limited to, nursing and home health aide services as well as counseling and social worker visits. Patients may receive Routine Hospice Care in their home or wherever they “call home”— a private residence, a hospice residential care facility, a nursing facility, an assisted living facility or an adult care home – when the care is related to the terminal diagnosis and included in the plan of care for the patient. Routine Hospice Home Care includes intermittent visits from all the members of the Interdisciplinary Team.
At times, a hospice patient may require inpatient care when their symptoms worsen or can no longer be managed successfully at home. When pain or symptoms cannot be controlled with routine hospice home care the patient will require extra assistance or more advanced medical attention until the symptoms subside.
On occasion, a medical crisis can occur which requires close medical supervision. Avid Hospice 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.
