Providing rapid response, hospice, and palliative care for your needs

Respite Care

Respite care services are designed to give primary care-givers a break by providing planned or emergency care when needed.  This short-term service is used most often to avoid caregiver fatigue and to allow them time to regroup, and more often than not, give their own responsibilities the attention they need.

Services provided by respite care communities include day care service for a few hours to a few days.  They will  help with day-to-day activities and needs such as bathing, dressing, toileting and care for incontinence, and eating. This also allows individuals in respite care to meet others in the community and join in activities they would not normally have access to.

Specialized Care Services

Palliative Care

Palliative care is specialized medical care for those with serious illnesses.  Providing relief from symptoms and stress and improving the quality of life for both the patient and the family is the main objective in palliative care. 

The palliative care team consists of specially-trained doctors, nurses and other specialists who typically treat people with cancer, congestive heart failure, kidney disease, Alzheimer’s disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), Parkinson’s, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and many more.  They work along side the patient’s other doctors in most all cases.

Hospice Care

Hospice is supportive care given to people in the final phase of a terminal illness and focuses on comfort  and quality of life, rather than cure. Hospice care provides compassionate care for people in the last  phases of incurable disease so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible.

Hospice care is covered by Medicare Part A for patients who have a life expectancy of six months or less, however, fewer than half of all eligible beneficiaries use it. Current Medicare hospice policies require patients to forgo all medical treatment for their underlying disease to receive hospice benefits, which may deter individuals from transitioning to hospice.
