When medically appropriate, INS hospice team members work in shifts up to 24 hours per day, providing continuous care to help the patient remain at home instead of being admitted to the hospital. This intensive level of care is appropriate when a patient is having acute symptoms that can’t be managed by the primary caregiver. Continuous comfort care is provided for brief periods if your loved one has:
- Uncontrolled pain
- Trouble breathing
- Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea that won’t ease up
- Change in level of consciousness
- Restlessness or agitation
You and your loved ones deserve the best hospice care can provide. Please let us know if there is any way we can offer our assistance by sending us a message or calling us at 678-806-5900.
