Bob Fryer & Family Inpatient Center
Although most people prefer to stay at home, patients may need another level of care. Care is available for patients and their families at The Bob Fryer & Family Inpatient Center.
The Inpatient Center is designed to be a home away from home with bright, comfortable private rooms and plenty of space for family and friends to gather. The Inpatient Center is open 24 hours a day for visitors, and features living rooms and fully equipped kitchens so patients and their families can spend time together in a pleasant environment.
There are three levels of care offered at the Inpatient Center.
- General inpatient care is for short-term treatment, similar to an acute hospital stay, when patients’ symptoms require physician intervention, frequent nursing assessment, medication adjustments and the management of distressing symptoms, such as pain, nausea or agitation. Once symptoms are managed, plans are made for the patient to return home or to a skilled care facility. This level of care is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurances.

- Respite care, or breaks for caregivers, is available to Hospice families for up to five days at a time on an occasional basis. While patients stay at the Inpatient Center for short-term stays, caregivers can rest, travel or go to appointments. Patients often return home following a respite stay. This level of care is also covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurances.

- Residential care is offered for patients with a limited prognosis of approximately weeks to a month for 24/7 end-of-life care provided by nurses, aides, social workers, chaplains and volunteers in collaboration with patients’ attending physicians. Patients’ symptoms are under control and they may need assistance with personal care, such as eating, toileting and bathing. Patients and families pay out-of-pocket for room and board with care being covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurances. Hospice & Community Care does provide a fee reduction for those who qualify.
