Levels of Care
Different patients require different levels of care. We respond by offering the category of care that meets the individual patient's needs, in the location that is most appropriate and comfortable. These categories of care include:
Routine Home Hospice Care
We believe in bringing care to wherever you call home, and we strive to provide an environment of care that is comfortable for our patients and their families. Often, this means providing care in the patient's own home, a nursing home, a group home, an assisted living facility or a hospital. Our team of professionals schedule regular home visits to ensure that medical, social, and emotional needs are met.
Inpatient Hospice Care
If pain or symptoms cannot be controlled at home, the patient might be taken to a hospital or other inpatient care center. When the symptoms are under control, the patient can return home.
Many patients have their own caregivers, often family members. When caregivers need a rest from their caregiving responsibilities, patients can stay in a hospital or other inpatient care center for up to five days.
Continuous Hospice Care
Sometimes a patient has a medical crisis that needs close medical attention. When this happens, Seasons Hospice staff can provide round-the-clock care in the home. When the crisis is over, the patient can return to routine care at home or in a nursing home or assisted living facility.
