Inpatient Care

General Inpatient Hospice Care

This level of care is short term  and occurs during a crisis of uncontrolled symptoms that require hospitalization; but still managed by hospice. With this level of care the patient may be admitted to hospice prior to leaving the hospital when a patient/family decides it is the right time, yes the patient’s symptoms aren’t controlled well enough to be in the home setting.

They also may be admitted to General Inpatient Care for symptoms that can’t be controlled, despite aggressive treatment efforts. The hospice team will explain which options is best for the patient and arrange for inpatient care if deemed appropriate, and remain involved in the treatment of the patient.

Respite Care

Short-term respite care is provided in a facility to allow caregivers a time to rest. The hospice team will schedule this time with a facility and manage the patient’s care while in the facility for this level of care. The family/caregiver can be confident that the patient will be cared for while giving them the time needed for rest

We would like to thank everyone who helped take care of my dad physically and spiritually. Everyone was so helpful. We are so grateful for Journey Hospice, so that he was able to be at home at the time of his passing. Again, thank you so much.

Thank you so much for helping with Eugene. I know I have only known you for a few months, but it seems a lifetime. Your help and understanding was deeply appreciated. Letting me call you in times of need was wonderful. I miss you all for your friendship and our talks.

I believe hospice made her death easier for me to acknowledge. It was wonderful talking to Jane and asking her to make peace with her family. She agreed and asked her son to come visit her. Thank you.
