Hospice Care: Grandview Heights collaborates with hospice to aide with residents and families if the need is desired.

Residents in nursing homes may benefit from Hospice care. Those eligible for Hospice include individuals who have a life limiting illness or have decided to receive comfort care rather than a cure. Examples of comfort care services include pain management provided by both the nursing home staff following the direction of the hospice staff. Nursing assistants will help individuals with added needs such as bathing, grooming along with increased one on one time. Music therapy has been found to provide support to encourage emotional well being. There are other benefits for the family in the form of education dealing with life limiting illnesses. The payer source for Hospice is either Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance as well as privately. If resources are not available most Hospice entities will remain to provide services to those in need.
