-A A +A

Caring for a loved one with declining health is never easy and it takes its toll on all involved. Gentiva Hospice has teamed up with Kingston Residence of Santa Fe to aid in those who need hospice care. 

Hospice is for someone who can no longer take care of themselves because of disease where there is no hope left for recovery and all treatments has been exhausted. It is an insurance covered benefit. 

Gentiva is a mobile unit with a full staff that will come to people in need. It has four levels of care. It is a complementary service that can help care givers cope. 

• Routine health care

• In-patient hospital care

• Respite care — Unique to Gentiva that handles those living at nursing homes. This is an unlimited service throughout the year. 

• Continual in-home care. Provides a registered hospice nurse to come to the home to give primary care givers a break. “If the primary caregiver has to go out of town, a registered hospice nurse will stay with the ill person for as long as needed,” clinical liaison and registered nurse, Amanda Yarrington said. The nurse will stay with the person until the acute issue is stabilized.
