Routine, Respite, General Inpatient, and Continuous Care

Abode cares for the terminally ill and helps patients live their final days to the fullest, as free as possible from disabling pain and mental anguish – usually in the setting of their own home, or the home of their choice.

Routine Hospice Care

Routine care is the most common care type focused on providing physical, spiritual, and emotional support to patients and families. This care type can be provided anywhere that is considered home, including the home setting, assisted living facilities, personal care homes, and nursing homes. Abode Hospice & Home Health will provide all medications, equipment, and supplies related to the terminal illness or for comfort management.

Respite Care

Respite care is utilized to provide temporary relief to caregivers, allowing them personal time to rest and recuperate. This type of care is provided in a licensed nursing facility for a maximum of 5 consecutive days. Abode Hospice & Home Health will provide transportation, medications, equipment, supplies, and will cover up to 5 days of room and board payment.

General Inpatient Care

General inpatient care is utilized to provide short-term crisis management for severe symptoms and/or pain. This type of care is provided in a Medicare-approved skilled nursing facility (SNF). Patients are re-evaluated on a 24-hour basis to assess continued eligibility and establish the length of stay. Abode Hospice & Home Health will work in collaboration with the SNF to fulfill all medication and supply needs. Abode will reimburse the SNF for as long as this care type is deemed clinically necessary.

Continuous Care

Continuous care is utilized to provide short-term crisis management. This 24-hour care type is provided by a licensed nurse in any setting that is considered home. Abode Hospice & Home Health will provide all necessary medications, equipment, and supplies relating to the terminal illness or comfort management. A reassessment for continued eligibility will occur every hour to establish length of stay required for pain management.
