Residential level of care is for patients who lack the caregiving that their physical condition warrants. There is no limit to the amount of time patients spend in residential care; however, a Hospice Home residential patient must maintain a prognosis of less than thirty days. If a patient stops meeting the Hospice Home residential criteria, we will begin transfer planning to hospice care in the community setting.
Patients who access residential level care will be charged a Room and Board fee. The Room and Board fee is not covered by Medicare, but may be covered by Medicaid and some private insurances including long term care insurance. A reduced fee may be available based on financial need. No patient is ever turned away for inability to pay.
