There are times when routine home hospice care requires an increase in the medical care that is required to manage physical symptoms. Continuous Care may be required to temporarily control severe pain and symptoms, with the goal being that a patient can remain in their home and familiar surroundings during such crisis.
Angels Grace Hospice & Palliative Care provides Continuous Care for patients who are in need of a nurse to remain at the bedside to help manage uncontrolled symptoms. This care includes nursing care for a short period of time while plan of care and medications are being adjusted to effectively manage uncontrolled symptoms. The goal is to achieve comfort and management of symptoms as soon as possible, and return to a routine level of home care with a new plan of care.
