When a hospice patient's symptoms are becoming difficult to manage, hospice can assist by providing higher levels of care during a crisis.  Helen and Jerry discuss the two levels of care that can be provided on a short term basis to help when a patient needs more assistance.

General inpatient (GIP) is provided at a medical facility such as a hospital or hospice inpatient unit.  Continuous care, or crisis care, can be provided at the patient's residence by hospice staff. 

Listen to this episode to learn more about when a higher level of care can be offered, and what services to expect.  For more information, visit our website at, or write to us at if you have a question or a comment.
