Preceptor Hospice professionals are dedicated and devoted to honoring and supporting every individual’s journey with love, care, and tenderness. In these challenging moments it is important to know you have an option that can help your loved one get the most out of life and live as fully and as comfortably as possible.
Our hospice care is centered around the entire family. We provide a team that focuses on individual care while offering your family all the support and help that is needed. Preceptor Home Health & Hospice believes that every moment matters. Our hospice program is designed to help make the most of each day and help provide the support your family needs at this time.
With 4 available options, the appropriate care is always within reach.
Routine: This is the most common level of care and is provided in the home when there is no medical crisis. This care is provided by nurses, aides, chaplains, and social workers several times a week. We schedule care based on the individual needs of the patient. We have nurses working 24/7 to provide care and answer questions, so peace of mind is never more than a phone call away.
Respite: Caring for a loved one can take a physical and emotional toll on the caregiver. Under this level of care, your loved one can spend up to 5 days at a skilled nursing facility that is fully staffed to provide care. This is covered under the hospice benefit and is meant to ease caregiver burden while providing peace of mind that your loved one is being well cared for.
Continuous: If a patient’s symptoms are not being comfortably managed under routine care, continuous care is an option where care can be provided for hours at a time. Most families will not need this type of care because of the special training provided to Preceptor staff for end of life care, but it is here for those times when extra support is needed.
General Inpatient: This is least commonly used level of care and is for when a patient’s symptoms are no longer manageable in the home setting. A patient can be placed in a skilled nursing facility or hospital until their symptoms are managed and they are stable enough to return to the comfort of their own home.
Through the generosity of past patients and families, financial assistance and Cherished Moments are possible.
