General Inpatient Care

General Inpatient Care

When is inpatient care required?

As much as we would love to take care of our family members at home, there may be times when we need help.

Plus, there are situations when our loved ones require around-the-clock, expert care and monitoring. In hospice care, our team ensures that patients receive the care and support they need to live their remaining days comfortably.

With Abundant hospice, you can rest easy knowing that your loved one is in good hands.

Experience Compassionate Care in Our Inpatient Hospice Unit

Comfort and Support are Our Top Priority

Abundant Hospice Care provides 24-hour service involving care by our highly skilled staff. When your loved one’s symptoms require immediate attention, we can admit them to our Inpatient Hospice Unit. There, they will receive holistic treatment (physical, emotional, and spiritual) in a comfortable, homelike setting.

Additionally, our excellent chefs and kitchen staff provide delicious and nutritious meals, beverages, and snacks within your loved one’s dietary requirements.

In our inpatient unit, the Abundant Family is ready and prepared to care for your family.

Setting the Standard:

How Our Hospice Care Stands Out from the Rest

Holistic Approach

We don’t just treat an illness. We give our earnest attention to the whole person, addressing emotional and spiritual needs.

24/7 Nursing

We have registered nurses and licensed home healthcare aides on staff who are trained in pain management and skilled care.

Personalized Plan of Care

Together with the interdisciplinary team, you and your family can carve out your wishes for all aspects of hospice care.

Well-maintained hospice house

If you wish to spend these last days at Abundant Hospice Center, we offer hospice home care with meals, 24hr care and housekeeping.

Expert Care at Every Stage:

The Four Levels of Hospice Services

Routine Home Care

During this initial phase, the family receives regularly scheduled visits from home health aides, registered nurses, volunteers, chaplains/spiritual advisors, and therapists. The primary caregiver is often a relative who has received training from the hospice staff.

Respite Care

Respite can be provided to primary caregivers for up to 5 consecutive days. Your loved one is temporarily admitted to an inpatient facility to give you time to recharge.

Continuous Home Care

In this situation, your loved one receives short-term, 24-hour nursing care wherever he or she calls home. At this point, the patient’s symptoms have escalated to the where the primary caregiver needs assistance from aides and nurses.

General inpatient Care

General inpatient care requires the patient to be admitted to a hospice inpatient care unit or another local facility where he or she receives 24-hour symptom management and monitoring.

Do Medicare & Medicaid Cover Hospice Services?

Nearly half of Americans with a terminal illness opt for hospice care to make their final months or years more comfortable through pain management. That’s why it’s vital to understand how these two insurance options, Medicare and/or Medicaid, can work together during hospice care.

Hospice Services covered under Medicare

With a written certification from a physician, most aspects of hospice care are covered including:

Hospice Services covered under Medicaid

Medicaid also covers most of the same services that are covered by Medicare, depending on the state where you live.

What Our Clients Says

Michelle did a great job setting up Hospice services for my father in law. She expedited services when we needed them and continues to check on us. Thank you Michelle!

Abundant Hospice met our every need in a caring and timely manner. Michelle came as soon as I called to admit my loved one. She checked on me every day and after my mom passed. At this time, she cared for both of my parents. Ashton, Sylvia and Melissa gave me such comfort with their prompt and loving care. They were always available, and Ali was with me to direct service caretakers. I highly recommend this incredible company for the first rate we received. They are still caring for my other parent. And I am confident she is receiving the best care available.

This facility was a nice place for my mom to spend her final days. Everyone was so nice and attentive to whatever my mom needed and we appreciate their fine hospitality. We were able to stay there for as long as we wanted anytime and they always made us feel welcome. Even the transition from the hospital to the facility was smooth and very quick and easy. Communication was always there and we have absolutely no complaints about anything at all. We would recommend this facility to anyone we know. Thank you again for making this difficult time easier for us.

Michelle Balero has such tremendous compassion for all those that she engages with. She goes above and beyond to take care of the patient but also the family. It is such a difficult time in our lives but she makes the transition so much more bearable by her supportive care❤️

Our girls are 19 and 23 years old and their amazing father Sean has fought a good fight but is ready to transition and stop his pain. I will start with my history as a hopsice case manager and as a hospice team director because I am very aware of the services hospice offers and I would like to say Michelle Balero thus far has gone above and beyond. She worked all day yesterday to get my girls father in Abundants IPU. She didn't stop until she got it done! She has kept in contact with us, responded to any questions, and went out of the way to make this experience better for my daughters. I am very sure I will be leaving more reviews and we are so happy to know Sean will leave this world with dignity and love from all!
