Routine, Respite, General Inpatient and Continuous Care

Grane provides short-term care outside the home giving temporary relief to those caring for family members, as well as continuing care in the home and inpatient respite care for those who need it most.

Routine Hospice Care

Routine care is the most common care type focused on providing physical, spiritual, and emotional support to patients and families. This care type can be provided anywhere that is considered home, including the home setting, assisted living facilities, personal care homes, and nursing homes. Grane will provide all medications, equipment, and supplies related to the terminal illness or for comfort management.

Inpatient Respite Care

Respite care is utilized to provide temporary relief to caregivers, allowing them personal time to rest and recuperate. This type of care is provided in a licensed nursing facility for a maximum of 5 consecutive days. Grane will provide transportation, medications, equipment, supplies, and will cover up to 5 days of room and board payment.

General Inpatient Care

General inpatient care is utilized to provide short-term crisis management for severe symptoms and/or pain. This type of care is provided in a Medicare-approved skilled nursing facility (SNF). Patients are re-evaluated on a 24-hour basis to assess continued eligibility and establish length of stay. Grane Hospice will work in collaboration with the SNF to fulfill all medication and supply needs. Grane will reimburse the SNF for as long as this care type is deemed clinically necessary.

Continuous Care

Continuous care is utilized to provide short-term crisis management, similar to General Inpatient Care. This around-the-clock care type is provided by a licensed nurse, in any setting that is considered home. Grane will provide all necessary medications, equipment, and supplies relating to the terminal illness or comfort management. A reassessment for continued eligibility will occur every hour to establish length of stay required for pain management.
