Routine Home Care

We provide all services on a weekly basis in patient’s homes, residential care facilities for elderly, assisted living facilities, and skilled nursing homes.

General Inpatient Care

Unity First Hospice provides general inpatient care for patient in crisis and in need of pain control and symptom management that cannot be provided in home settings. We have contacted skilled nursing facilities and local hospitals where patients can receive appropriate short-term inpatient care and return home on routine level of care time, generally just a few days.

Continuous Level of Care

Our team provides continuous level of care indicated for patient in crisis 24 hours a day to achieve palliation or management of acute medical symptoms for brief periods of time, generally just a few days.

Respite Care

Limited to five consecutive days, respite care provides a brief ‘respite’ for the patient’s primary caregivers by admitting the home care patient to an institutional setting without meeting the ‘inpatient’ pain and symptom management criteria.
