Levels Of Care

The majority of hospice care falls under the first level, routine care.  Below you will find the 4 levels of hospice care with a description of each:

Levels Of Care

Routine Home Care

Most common level of care in hospice. Patient is generally stable and the patient's symptoms, like pain or nausea and vomiting, are adequately controlled.
Usually provided in the home.

General Inpatient Care

Crisis-like level of care for short-term management of out of control patient pain and/or symptoms.
Usually provided outside the home, in an inpatient setting at a medical facility like a hospital or skilled nursing facility.

Continuous Home Care

Crisis-like level of care for short-term management of out of control patient pain and/or symptoms.
Usually provided in the home.

Respite Care

A level of temporary care provided in nursing home, hospice inpatient facility, or hospital so that a family member or friend who's the patient's caregiver can take some time off.
This level of care is tied to caregiver needs, not patient symptoms.
