This is the routine home care benefit provided at the Hospice House. Patients and families who choose to stay at the Hospice House long term are responsible for the room charge at the current daily rate, please ask a team member for the current daily rate. The daily rate covers the room charge, house keeping, linens, and patient’s meals. Medicare continues to cover the medical care, medications related to hospice diagnosis, equipment, and supplies. Residential rooms are limited; this is based on need for GIP and respite beds.
You will need to bring your current medications, and you may bring clothing and other personal care items. Visitors may arrive as they wish and are welcome to stay overnight, as each room offers a pullout couch and recliner. Children are welcome as well; there is a play room available. Also for visitors, is a community kitchen, which is stocked with snacks and drinks free of charge. Pets are welcome as well; please schedule this with Hospice House staff. Meals are provided to patients and may be purchased by visitors, please check with staff for special request and availability.
