Inpatient Centers for Caring
During a patient’s end-of-life care journey, there might be times when their pain or symptoms become too difficult to manage and stabilize at home. That’s why Community Hospice & Palliative Care offers 10 inpatient Centers for Caring throughout Jacksonville and St. Augustine to serve patients in immediate need.
What to Expect When Visiting an inpatient Center for Caring
When your loved one arrives at any one of our Centers for Caring, our team gets to work treating their pain or symptoms and develops a care plan that focuses on getting the patient stabilized and home as quickly as possible.
Often, patients return home once their pain and symptoms are controlled or optimally managed. If a patient needs to remain at the inpatient Center for Caring after the hospice team determines that their symptoms are optimally managed, the team will assist in transitioning patients to a routine home level of care.
Who Pays for inpatient Centers for Caring services?
When a patient is placed in one of our Centers for Caring, the cost is usually covered by Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance. Some private insurances may charge a co-pay for inpatient care. If a patient remains at the inpatient level of care, insurance normally doesn’t charge for room and board.
Open 24 Hours a Day, Seven Days a Week
Our Community Hospice & Palliative Care inpatient Centers for Caring are staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week by our dedicated hospice care teams. Our Centers for Caring include private patient rooms in a home-like setting where family, friends, and loved ones are encouraged to visit day or night. Most of our Centers for Caring are equipped with a kitchen, laundry facility, and non-denominational chapel.
