Levels of Care
Inpatient care is provided to patients who remain in the hospital before, during, and after receiving healthcare services.
Outpatient care describes medical care or treatment that does not require an overnight stay in a hospital or medical facility. Often patients that are discharged required follow-up care and services.
Home Health Care
Helping individuals live independently given the limits of their medical condition. It may involve helping the person improve his or her ability with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, and eating. Or it may include rehabilitation for cooking, cleaning, and other housekeeping jobs.
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 your home or in a special facility.
