Continuous Home Care
For those patients who wish to remain at home during brief periods of crisis, Notre Dame Hospice is able to provide Continuous Home Care. During Continuous Care, a member of the Notre Dame Hospice nursing staff is present with the patient and caregiver in the home for a minimum of 8 hours followed by consecutive 8 hour periods for as long as deemed necessary by hospice staff.
We understand that these are difficult times for you and your family, but we want you to know that as a primary caregiver, you aren’t expected to be able to provide around the clock care to your loved one and manage a busy family life. We want you to know that feelings of guilt or abandonment are normal, but setting realistic expectations for yourself are a healthy way of dealing with this difficult time. Continuous Home Care can be a great time to spend a few precious hours on yourself or to catch up on other errands. Above all we want you to know that we are here for you and your family.
