Hospice Care

If you’re wondering where to turn for help caring for a terminally ill loved one, hospice could be your answer.

Hospice is a special way of caring for a person at the end of life, offering comfort and compassion when medical treatment no longer offers a cure. Hospice is available for many life-limiting conditions, such as cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, heart failure, or even just old age.

Hospice care is family-centered and takes place wherever home is. Our highly skilled and specially trained hospice team includes physicians, nurses, hospice aides, medical social workers, and spiritual and bereavement counselors. We work hand-in-hand with your doctor to provide expert medical care, pain and symptom relief, as well as emotional and spiritual support so that your loved one may live his or her remaining days to their fullest. A nurse is available 24/7.

Dietary counseling and Integrative therapies are also available to meet individualized needs. Specially trained hospice volunteers provide supportive services for patients and families. These include conversation, companionship, compassionate listening, massage, preparation of a light meal or running an errand.

VNHC participates in We Honor Veterans. a program that helps hospice professionals learn how to better serve veterans through the challenges they may be facing at end-of-life from their unique experiences serving in the military.

Serenity House. our inpatient hospice house, is an option if your needs cannot be met at home.

Hospice Care is a benefit under Medicare, Medi-Cal and most private insurances. Please find more information at Hospice: A Medicare Service Worth Asking About and Payment for Services .

Visiting Nurse Hospice Care does not discriminate against any person on the basis of race, color, national origin, disability, religion, gender, sexual orientation or age in admission, treatment, or participation in its programs, services and activities, or in employment.

Grants

Funding Request Guidelines

The mission of the Foundation is to create funding for education and assistance of Home Health and Hospice patients and their families. In pursuit of this mission, the Foundation raises funds for distribution to home health and hospice care organizations (we do not give grants to individuals) to help cover the costs of equipment, programs and uncompensated care for patients. We measure our success by our ability to raise and effectively distribute these funds.

The majority of the Visiting Nurse’s Foundation income comes from Foundation businesses. A portion of that income pays 100% of administrative expenses and the salaries of a minimal staff. The services of many hard working volunteers enables the remainder and 100% of all fund raisers, donations and memorials to go to benefit home health and hospice patients. The Foundation has a dedicated staff and active, all volunteer board, that works to increase funding to help meet a vital community need.

We are a unique partnership of donors and home healthcare providers, working together to insure that home health and hospice patients will not be denied medical care because of their inability to pay for those services. This relationship is based upon mutual respect and understanding.

The need to maintain a high level of accountability for contributed funds is basic to the partnership. As a condition of accepting funds, the agency in question should include in a year-end report, the number of unduplicated clients served with the funding, and the type of service(s) provided by the funds. They will provide at least three client stories that are representative of the patients helped by funds provided by the Foundation. Patients and communities benefiting from assistance given by the Foundation will be aware of this assistance.

We are aware the need for home health and hospice care, and the equipment and programs to support this care has increased dramatically over the last several years and that there has been an even greater increase in the number of patients who need and want the comfort and healing benefits of that care, but cannot afford it. The Foundation is committed to help home health and hospice care providers in their efforts to serve residents in need of care, regardless of the patients’ ability to pay.

Questions About Home Healthcare – Visiting Nurse Service- Rochester, NY #jersey #shore

#

Frequently Asked Questions

What is home healthcare?

Home healthcare can help you live independently in your home. We can assist with and provide
comprehensive care for you, all delivered in your home environment under the direction of your personal
physician. Services and programs are provided if you have a medical condition that can be:

  • Helped by the skill of a nurse, including: recovery from an illness, accident or surgery, wound care, help with medications and/or injections, physical, occupational and speech-language rehabilitation, therapy services, clinical management of a chronic disease and/or monitoring a serious illness
  • Patient and caregiver education

Home healthcare requires a skilled need that a nurse or physical therapist can provide. Nursing care by VNS is provided with a teamwork approach involving the patient first, physician, family, caregivers, and members of the healthcare team.

Personal care (or private duty care) is usually provided by a home health aide and does not require a nurse, but is necessary when you need help at home with bathing, dressing, moving around or meal preparation.

Who pays for home healthcare?

  • Home healthcare can be covered through a variety of sources if your care is medically necessary and you meet certain coverage requirements: Medicare – traditional Medicare pays 100% of the cost for home healthcare if you are 65 years of age or over or permanently disabled
  • Medicaid – Medicaid health insurance helps those with limited income who can’t afford medical care, and will pay for some or all of their medical bills
  • HMO’s (Health Maintenance Organizations) – companies have contracts with doctors and other healthcare providers and are directly involved in your medical treatment. HMO health insurance plans are generally the cheapest kind of coverage available, but also the most restrictive. Benefits vary per policy and verification of benefits is required
  • Workers Compensation Insurance – “Workers comp” covers you if you are injured on the job, whether hurt on the workplace or elsewhere, in an auto accident while on business, and covers work-related illnesses/medical and rehabilitation services
  • Private Pay – an option for services not covered as outlined above; you may choose to pay out of pocket
    for services

When insurance does not cover a needed service, fees are adjusted based on your ability to pay. Our Patient Account Representatives can help you find out what your insurance will cover. Call 585.787.2233 for more information.

Why do I need home healthcare?

  • Illness, surgical procedure, injury, or any number of life events may require you to have in-home healthcare as you recover
  • As hospital stays decrease, you may need highly skilled services when you return home
  • If you need continued care that can’t easily or effectively be provided by family members
  • Services are available with 24 hour on call nurses to assist seven days a week

What are the requirements for home health care?

  • You must be considered homebound
  • You are under the care of a physician who manages and authorizes the need for services
  • You require some type of skilled nursing services or need therapy from a Physical, Occupational, and/or
    Speech Therapist

What is the definition of homebound?

In general, you are homebound if:

  • You have an illness or injury that restricts your ability to leave home unless you have help, or if it takes a considerable and taxing effort to leave home (if you need a wheelchair, special transportation, or other assistance)
  • Absences from the home must be infrequent or for a short period of time, as in only leaving your home for medical care
  • Trips out cannot last longer than one to two hours or occur more often than one to two times per week for activities like grocery shopping, attending a worship service or going to a hair appointment

You are not considered homebound if:

  • You are able to drive
  • You leave your home for reasons other than receiving medical treatment
  • The absences are long and frequent, such as frequent shopping trips or visits to friends

How often are visits made?

A home health nurse comes as often as needed. Everyone’s needs are different and visits are coordinated and scheduled according to your specific needs.

What about home medical equipment and supplies?

We can coordinate and arrange delivery for all your home medical equipment, including:

  • Wheelchairs, walkers, bedside commodes, bathroom safety equipment
  • Oxygen, nebulizers, respiratory supplies

How do I choose a home care agency?

You can get started by visiting the free “Home Health Compare” tool online – the official U.S. government site for Medicare benefits information, located at http://www.medicare.gov/HHCompare. Here you can compare both certified and licensed home healthcare agencies in our area, see what types of programs and services they offer, and see the quality of care they provide, including patient outcomes. Home Health Compare also provides the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of each agency in your area, along with other important information.

Hospice House

Hospice care is defined not only by the services and care provided, but also by the setting in which these services are delivered. Hospice care may be provided in the patient’s home or in a special facility. Care begins when the patient is admitted to the program, which generally means that a hospice team member visits the home or hospital to learn about their situation and needs.

The Hospice House of Monroe County is an acute in-patient facility that the terminally ill resident can call home. Our fully staffed free standing facility is family and pet-friendly. Offering a full kitchen and accommodations for a family member who wishes to spend the night. The facility has been designed keeping in mind the comforts of a home-like setting and the medical needs of the residents. Visiting hours are unlimited, with no age restrictions.

Located in the heart of the scenic Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, within a minute of Interstate 80’s exit 309, Hospice House offers a private room for each patient. Family members may and are encouraged to: relax with their loved one on a private patio directly outside the room, take advantage of the in-room overnight accommodations, share meals in the room or the family sized dining room with use of a fully equipped kitchen, share your journey and stay connected by accessing high speed internet, or include children in the serene experience with our play area.

The ambiance we promote insures that you and your loved one(s) will remain comfortable while at the same time enjoy an optimal quality of life in a tranquil and beautiful environment. A calming waterfall and an array of skylight windows further help in realizing relaxation and serenity. Patients and families experience not only the latest in palliative medicine, but also experience the art of hospice care.

Attention is given to the many diverse needs of family members and loved ones alike. Surrounded by a caring team of highly trained professionals who specialize in comfort measures, emotional and spiritual well being, and end of life symptom management our hospice team includes: a physician medical director, registered nurses, social workers, chaplains, and volunteers offered to the patient and family 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.

Before making a decision about the type of program that is best for the patient and their family, it is important to know all your options and what each requires.
