Home & Hospice Care
Home care is appropriate when a person requires care that family and friends cannot easily or effectively provide on their own. The home care service might be needed for a short time after surgery, accident, stroke or heart attack, or for long-term care for diabetes management, chronic disease or assistance with activities of daily living.
- Skilled nursing for chronic conditions such as heart disease, cancer, wounds, lung disorders, and neurologic conditions
- Rehabilitation after injury or surgical procedure
- Intravenous (IV) or other infusion therapies
Swing Bed Care
We are committed to your continued recovery as you transition from hospital inpatient to your home or assisted living residence. As part of our swing bed program, we coordinate skilled nursing with rehabilitation to help patients recover before leaving our facility.
Who needs Swing Bed?
When a patient reaches the point in recovery where acute care hospitalization is no longer needed, but they are not physically able to go home, swing bed is an intermediary step. Because your needs during recovery are unique, your treatment plan will be tailored to your situation.
Hospice home care is for patients and their families facing terminal illness and for whom curative care is no longer beneficial. Hospice care focuses on achieving the greatest comfort and the highest quality of living that the patient’s health and circumstances allow.
Hospice home care services include:
- Patient and family-centered flexible care plans based on the principles of comfort, dignity and choice
- A multidisciplinary team, including registered nurses; health aides; medical social services personnel; spiritual counselors; physical, speech, occupational and massage therapists; and community of trained volunteers
- Pain and symptom management
- Family grief support
- Ongoing bereavement support groups
