Also known as "Hospice Houses," these small homelike residences are for persons registered with a Hospice Program who have a prognosis of less than 3 months to live. The houses are staffed by volunteers and do not charge.
Hospice Care is a Federal program paid for by Medicare (or health insurance benefits if the person is under 65) and as such, the services must be provided by a Certified Agency that manages and provides approval for all aspects of care. Care may be provided in a person's home, a nursing home or hospice house. The patient's prognosis can be as long as 6 months. As a capitated program, the individual relinquishes their Medicare benefits to the program that is providing services. The program pays for the medical, nursing, and physical care only, not room and board.
Medical consultative programs specializing in geriatric evaluation.
PRI/Screen (Patient Review Instrument/Screen) is an assessment required in New York State to determine eligibility and appropriate level of care for those seeking skilled nursing home placement. It must be completed as part of the facility's application process by a specially trained registered nurse. (The Screen component may be completed by a specially trained social worker.) For patients in the hospital, the PRI/Screen will be completed by hospital staff. In the community, any of the agencies listed may provide the service.
Companies that provide medical equipment, rehabilitation products and services.
