There are many levels of hospice care available to terminally ill patients, and according to allhospice.org, they are put into four main categories: Routine, Inpatient, Respite, and Continuous. Routine means the patient receives the standard care of hospice care at home or a facility, where care provides, nurse aides and others would be there to support. Inpatient is when there are symptoms that cannot be managed or controlled at a home setting with medications, care from an inpatient care center would be required to relieve such symptoms, and most insurance should cover the cost of such care. Respite care is generally viewed as a supplement to the main hospice care as the patients have their own care providers who are most often family members, when a break is needed, a respite care provider is usually help with duties for a few days. Lastly, Continuous care is for those who are having medical crisis that require attention around the clock, once such crisis is averted, hospice is back to the routine level.
