The right level of care, at the right time, with the right team
The Bridge to Hospice program offers coordination of care for patients and families coping with end-stage chronic illness or life-limiting illness. Frequently, hospice nurses take on ‘bridge’ patients who are still seeking active treatment for life-threatening illnesses, or who are not emotionally ready to consider hospice. This collaboration between our home health and hospice teams ensure a smooth, timely and seamless transition from home health to hospice care.
What are the benefits?
The Bridge Program reduces trips to the emergency room or hospitalizations, leading to a more stable quality of life and helping patients better manage their disease and symptoms at home.
Because Crossroads provides both restorative and palliative in-home care--with experienced professionals in a collaborative, patient-centered, team environment--we are equipped to help
Minimize patient family stress and confusion during a difficult time
Avoid unnecessary hospital visits and trips to the doctor
Provide a "go-to" source for concerns and questions--someone who is coordinating with an inter-disciplinary team
Maintain the same in-home care team across the spectrum of restorative and palliative care
Manage pain and healthcare needs in a home environment (home, apartment, assisted-living facility, board-and-care, senior housing, and in some cases: a skilled nursing facility)
