Understanding the Four Levels of Hospice Care

  • Routine care provided wherever you call home, whether a nursing facility, assisted living facility, or your own home.
  • Aimed at increasing comfort and quality of life.
  • Services may include pain management, symptom management, and/or counseling services for the patient and family.
  • This service is for patients requiring intensive care and support (sometimes referred to as “crisis care”). 
  • Includes round the clock nursing or extended periods of nursing support.
  • Allows family members to step out of the caregiver role and into the family member role so they can focus on being with their loved one.
  • Service typically used when a patient’s symptoms cannot be easily controlled at home.  
  • Oftentimes, the goal is to get the patient’s symptoms under control so they can return home.
  • Some patients opt to receive hospice care at an inpatient facility because it provides a neutral, safe space with family.
  • Short-term hospice care provided to allow the primary caregiver a break.
  • Care plan is developed collaboratively with primary caregiver and/or patient’s physician to provide pain and symptom management. 
  • Can be provided wherever the patient is located (inpatient facility or at home).
