Hospice & Palliative Care

We strive to understand each of our patients’ unique life experiences, needs and goals and then create a customized plan of care that honors and supports their journey.

We are dedicated to providing the right kinds of care at the right time. The services listed below are all designed to improve quality of life, and all are part of our hospice and palliative care. They are available at no additional cost to our patients and families. Our services are intended not only for our patients, but also their family members and caregivers as they support the patient on their end-of-life journey.

In challenging times, it’s a relief to have a trusted guide and reliable care. It’s AccentCare’s passion and our purpose to give you both.

Four Levels of Hospice Care

The levels of hospice care are meant to help patients achieve their goals of care at different points in their journey.

Not all patients require the same level of care. The appropriate level of hospice care is based on the patient’s specific needs and clinical eligibility, established through the patient, family, hospice physician and attending physician collaboration. Patients may qualify for higher levels of care for certain lengths of time depending on medical needs.

Length of Stay
Short-term | average length of stay is hours to days

Location
Nursing home, hospital, or hospice inpatient center (IPC)

Reasons
Patient is having uncontrolled symptoms (i.e. pain, respiratory distress, vomiting, bleeding)

Transfers
Physician determines when patient is stable for transfer, and hospice social worker coordinates transfer to a home, assisted living facility, or nursing home ( i.e. Routine Hospice with family)

Provided by hospice team members who visit the patient and their family in their home, wherever that may be.

Through constant care, nurses and certified nursing assistants provide support in the home or facility to help manage and ease out-of-control symptoms.

Provided by hospice team members who visit the patient and their family in their home, wherever that may be.
