hospice admissions

Hospice admission is based on criteria specific to a diagnosis

Criteria such as: Heart Disease, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Renal Failure, Strokes, Liver Disease, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Emphysema, and Cancer etc. We manage care at home, in a nursing home or in an assisted living. Many patients/families wish they had been offered hospice earlier before death was imminent. Audubon Hospice patients may be admitted at any one of four levels of care encompassing Routine Home Care, Continuous Care, Inpatient Care or Respite Care.

Routine Home Care involves intermittent visits as needed at the patient’s residence, which may be a private home, group home, assisted living or nursing home facility.

Continuous Home Care provides increased nursing care to manage symptoms up to 24 hours per day for a short period of time.

Inpatient Respite allows for a 5-day respite for caregivers by transferring the patient to an inpatient unit or other contracted facility
