Thomas P. Perciak Family Residential Hospice
There are times when the needs of the hospice patient exceed the care that
can be provided by family and friends. The Thomas P. Perciak Family Residential
Hospice of Southwest General offers a comfortable setting and is staffed
with professional hospice personnel who can provide for inpatient care
in a home-like environment.
Levels of Care
This level of care involves frequent nursing assessment and care planning
to address symptoms that cannot be easily managed at home or in another
setting. This is typically a short-term stay in the residential center
with a goal of returning to home or other facility. The hospice attending
physician is involved in determining the duration of this level of care.
Respite care services are provided at the residential center to allow
the caregiver a time to rest or attend to personal matters, knowing the
patient is being cared for by trained staff members. To inquire about
the use of respite care, please talk with your hospice nurse or social worker.
This level of care is intended for short-term use with the acknowledgement
that each patient’s needs are individually assessed. Length of stay
is evaluated regularly by the interdisciplinary team. Room and board is
not covered under the hospice Medicare benefit. All or part of this cost
may be covered by private insurers. The hospice social worker is available
to assist with financial assessment.
The Thomas P. Perciak Family Residential Hospice offers patients and families
a variety of amenities. Each room is a private room that includes a private
bath, patio and accommodations for families to stay overnight—even
pets are welcome to visit. Additionally, food service is available for
patient and guests. Facility features include a kitchen, two family rooms,
a Meditation Room, a children’s play area, an outdoor fountain garden
area, a labyrinth for spiritual reflection and a Community Room with fireplace,
piano and television.
Visitors may visit 24 hours a day as long as that meets the patient’s
wishes. Visitors must enter through the front vestibule at all times.
The doors are locked at 8 p.m., so please ring the doorbell when arriving
after that hour. Children are welcomed visitors at the residential center.
Our community room has age-appropriate toys, games and reading materials.
For the safety of all children, we ask that an adult accompany children
at all times.
