Four Levels of Care

When your loved one is admitted as a patient with Lutheran Hospice, a personal team of caring medical professionals including our Medical Director, the patient’s attending physician, and you, the caregiver, will create a plan of care as dictated by Medicare Law.

Each plan will include information on medical visits, payment for medications related to the terminal illness, medical equipment, and soft goods used during our hospice care programming. Plans also include access to an on-call hospice nurse 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Depending on your loved one’s needs, he or she will fall under one of four levels of hospice care as defined by law.
