Levels of Hospice Care

  • Acute: This level of care addresses intense pain or other symptoms, such as nausea, severe shortness of breath, or complex medical needs.
  • Respite: Five-day respite care is available under Medicare, Medicaid, and some insurances to provide caregiver relief.
  • Residential: Some patients choose to stay for extended hospice care. For this level of hospice care, generally your insurance will cover medical costs, but you will be billed for daily room and board fees.
