Home hospice care from our skilled staff is available wherever you live.  If you are not able to get the level of care you need at home or in another facility, our Inpatient Center located in Sheboygan Falls, WI may be the best option.  The Hospice Center may be right for you if you need:

General Inpatient Care (GIP) – This level of care is utilized either in the Hospice Center or a contracted facility when a patient’s need for pain and/or acute or chronic symptom management cannot be managed in the home. When the symptoms are controlled, usually in a matter of a few days, the patient returns home. Room and Board is covered during this level of care.

Respite Care – This level of care is provided when family members caring for the patient need a break.  The hospice team makes arrangements to have the patient transferred to a Medicare approved facility for up to five days at a time while the caregiver gets some much needed rest. The caregiver has the choice of utilizing the Hospice Center or a contracted facility. Room and Board is covered under this level of care for a total of 5 days, for each respite stay.

Routine Care – This level of care is generally provided in the patient’s home; this can be a private residence, apartment, assisted living, nursing home, or other home like setting.  Hospice team members make regularly scheduled, intermittent visits to assess the patient and provide care based on the needs and desires of each patient.  The hospice staff is also available on an on-call basis at all times. Care for patients at the routine level of care in the Inpatient Center is determined on a case-by-case basis. Room and board is not covered by Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance. If the fee is not affordable, our Finance Manager will meet with you to discuss your individual financial situation.
