At times, pain or symptoms may become difficult to manage or stabilize at home, a nursing home or assisted living facility. Community Hospice & Palliative Care can provide short-term Crisis Intervention Care at home, at your local hospital, or intensive care can be provided at one of our Community Hospice & Palliative Care inpatient care centers.

Inpatient care is intended as a short-term solution to help manage uncontrolled pain and symptoms. Patients may need round-the-clock attention or have need for special therapies to reduce pain and improve quality of life.

The goal of this care, whenever possible, is to return patients to the place in which they reside. It is not a substitute for home care or long term care.

All Community Hospice & Palliative Care inpatient care centers are staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Along with round-the-clock care and dedicated hospice care teams, these centers include private patient rooms in a homelike setting where family, friends and loved ones can visit day or night. In fact, overnight stays are welcome and encouraged. Kitchens, laundry facilities and non-denominational chapels are available at most locations.

When a patient’s condition stabilizes and their symptoms are under control, the Community Hospice & Palliative Care physician in consultation with family and psychosocial specialist will arrange for the patient's transition back home.

Community Hospice & Palliative Care psychosocial staff will assist with a transfer plan. The plan may include transfer to home, a long term care facility, or assisted living facility, depending on the patient’s situation at that time.

A psychosocial staff member can assist in applying for institutional Medicaid for long term care facility room and board, if appropriate and as needed.
