Levels of Palliative and End of Life Care

Patients have different needs and ideas of what their end-of-life care looks like. We offer patients four levels of care:

1. Routine Home Care: Patients live at home and receive routine care from nurses and nurses' aides.

2. Continuous Home Care: Patients receive round-the-clock care at home in a time of crisis.

3. General Inpatient Care: Patients receive short-term care when their symptoms can't be managed outside of a hospital setting.

4. Respite Care: Patients receive short-term care when their caregiver needs a break.

It can be hard to determine when it's time for someone to receive palliative care. It may be time to think about end-of-life care if you notice these signs:

  • Recurrent infections
  • Unintentional weight loss/weight gain
  • Inability to walk
  • Frequent falls
