We recognize that caregivers and family members have needs too. When the patient’s usual caregiver or family member needs a break, much needed rest or has important matters to attend to, Ameriprime Hospice will arrange the transfer of patient to an inpatient respite care in a Medicare-approved facility ( i.e. nursing home) contracted by Ameriprime Hospice. We will coordinate all the arrangements with the facility to transfer the patient without hassle for the family members.
Patient can stay up to 5 days each time respite care is requested. Ameriprime Hospice patient’s are able to request respite care more than once, but it can only be provided on an occasional basis.
To schedule for respite services, please contact us at Ameriprime Hospice via our online form or by calling our friendly staff at 1-800-899-9790.
