Family Hospice Inpatient Centers
Family Hospice and Palliative Care offers a 12-private room inpatient hospice center in Mt. Lebanon as well as a 12-private room center on the campus of UPMC Senior Communities' Canterbury Place in Lawrenceville. Both Centers embody our organization's leadership in the delivery of expert, compassionate services and its commitment to regional education and training. The Family Hospice Inpatient Centers offer patients and families a home-like environment, including a family room, meditation room and picturesque courtyard. A round-the-clock staff provides hospice care for patients experiencing complicated symptoms or for caregivers in need of respite. The Centers provide two levels of care for the hospice patient and caregivers: General Inpatient and Respite.
General Inpatient Care:
Admission to our inpatient hospice centers may be needed to control a patient's pain or other symptoms. Our team's efforts are directed toward the resolution of the symptoms that prompted the admission. Generally, the stay is short-term.
Respite care provides for patient stays for up to five days in this setting. Occasionally, family members may become exhausted and require temporary relief from their caregiving duties. The Medicare Hospice Benefit allows for this respite care break for families. While care is offered to the patient, the caregivers get time to rest so that they can resume their responsibilities. A highly skilled, specialized hospice team manages patients' needs and the many concerns surrounding a life-limiting illness, with an emphasis on personal dignity and quality of life. Each patient has a tastefully appointed private room.
