We work with each client and family on an individualized Plan of Care, but there are generally three levels of care offered at the Hanson Hospice Center:
Respite Care – when caregivers need a little break
If a caregiver needs a short time of relief, their loved one may be admitted to the Hanson Hospice Center for what we call respite care. That person may stay for up to five days. Caregivers can be sure their loved one is being well looked after while they take a break to recharge.
General Inpatient – when you need an alternative to the hospital
Sometimes people need to come to the Hanson Hospice Center when they require treatments for pain and symptom management. General inpatient care is also used to provide education for families as they learn how to care for their loved one. Once stabilized, the client may return home, or hospice staff can assist a family in finding the best place for their loved one to get the care they need, such as a nursing home or assisted living facility.
Residential – when you need a comfortable place to stay
People choosing to live at the Hanson Hospice Center pay a reasonable standard daily room and board charge. This covers 24-hour nursing care and all amenities. Some long-term-care insurance plans will cover the room and board fee. In all cases, we work hard to make sure that this is affordable, and that anyone who needs to stay can do so.
