What is Hospice Care?

When a doctor determines that a patient most likely has no more than six months to live, the person or their family may choose to stop trying to cure the illness, and opt to receive hospice care instead.

Hospice, also called “comfort care,” focuses on managing pain and keeping a person comfortable so that they can enjoy a good quality of life for the remainder of their time left.

What Does Hospice Do at Home?

Hospice care includes palliative care to relieve symptoms and give social, emotional, and spiritual support. For patients receiving in-home hospice care, the hospice nurses make regular visits and are always available by phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

How Does Expert Home Care Help with Hospice?

Expert Home Care understands that clients with terminal illnesses deserve special care and supervision to ensure they remain comfortable and dignified during this difficult time.

Our caregivers will work in conjunction with a Hospice RN or Hospice team to assist the client with their daily needs to ensure that they and their family can enjoy their remaining time together in the best way possible.

Live-in home care can really make a difference in a terminal situation allowing the family to have “quality” time and visits with their loved ones while our caregivers tend to the daily living needs and chores. This can be a great relief for families who are going through this difficult time.

Hourly services are available in select areas. Different schedules are available and certain minimums apply.

What Are The Four Levels of Hospice Care?

Hospice offers four levels of care, two of which happen at home. The four levels are:

  • Routine Home Care. The most common level of hospice care includes nursing and home health aide services.
  • Continuous Home Care. This is when a patient needs continuous nursing care during a time of crisis.
  • General Inpatient Care. Short-term care during times when pain and symptoms can’t be managed without a hospital setting.
  • Respite Care. Short-term care in a facility during times when the patient’s caregiver needs a break in caregiving.
