Our Services

The Tri-State LifeCare program offers three different levels of palliative care to patients of all ages. Our team of professionals works in collaboration with the patient’s primary care provider and sees the patient wherever their home may be, whether a private residence, an assisted living facility, a senior group home, a skilled nursing facility or other location. For our Palliative Respite Program, patients are provided with short-term respite care in the Emogene Dolin Jones Hospice House.

The specific level of care is determined by the patient, provider team and family based on individual need. Level of care include:
Caregiving Services 
Home Palliative Care Services
Palliative Respite Services

Palliative Respite Care

Who Comes?

A caregiver, who has been trained by Hospice of Huntington to provide services to seriously ill patients. This worker is backed by a trusted agency that provides back-up care if something happens and the scheduled worker cannot come. If a licensed care worker is needed, Certified Nurse Assistants are available.

Our Palliative Physician comes to your home as an extension of your primary care physician to assist with medication adjustments, discuss your illness and symptoms and help improve your quality of life at home. This is like the doctor’s office coming to you instead of you having to go to the doctor. The Palliative Physician is specially trained to care for patients in the palliative stage of an illness and can help improve the quality of life for you and provide helpful information and support for your caregivers. A patient on home palliative services can still receive home health services, chemotherapy and other treatments.

Patients currently enrolled in Tri-State LifeCare’s Palliative Program can receive inpatient respite care and services at the EDJHH if they are determined to be medically eligible by a Tri-State LifeCare physician.

What Do You Get?

Caregivers can provide companion services such as sitting, light housekeeping, transportation and socialization. Personal care workers can also provide personal care services such as bathing and grooming.

Extended time in your home to talk with a physician about your condition and family needs. This allows the opportunity for you to ask questions and get information and resources you may not be able to have time to get in the office. This service also helps keep you out of the hospital unnecessarily. Important information is shared with your physician so he/she can manage your care in the best possible way.

The patient receives 24-hour-a-day care for up to one week.

Who Pays for It?

Tri-State Life Care Caregiving Services are paid for by the client, Power of Attorney or with a long-term care insurance policy. Tri-State LifeCare Caregiving Services are not covered by Medicare and Medicaid. A payment deposit, plus a free care assessment, is required in advance of service.
