Care Levels

With Hospice of the Comforter, the focus is on the patient’s quality of life and to keep him or her as comfortable as possible. Our goal is to provide care to patients in their own home, whether it is a private home, an assisted living facility or long-term care facility, and to provide support to their loved ones and caregivers.

Routine Care

Day-to-day care is provided by patients and/or caregivers with the support of the hospice team. Routine visits are made by team members to best meet the needs of the patient and caregiver.

In-Patient Care

Patients may be admitted to a hospital or Hospice of the Comforter’s inpatient unit for a short time (one to three days) to manage various symptoms, such as uncontrolled pain, nausea, vomiting or difficulty breathing.

Respite Care

Though rewarding, caring for a sick loved one can also be exhausting. When a caregiver needs short-term relief, a patient may be admitted to a contracted facility for a maximum of five days. A hospice team will continue to visit the patient during this time.

Crisis Care

Designed for short periods of time, crisis care assists with the management of uncontrolled symptoms so that the patient can return to a state of comfort as soon as possible. Patients remain at home or in a nursing facility and receive close observation while receiving crisis care. This level of care is evaluated on a day-to- day basis to determine necessity.
