CNA-certified nursing assistant

While Medicare does not require certified nursing assistants we at Ancora feel this certification is essential to maintain high quality and professional care. They assist with personal care & hygiene, they are the cornerstone of keeping our patients loved, clean, and dry. They can also assist with light housekeeping and meal prep. They are trained in proper transferring techniques e.g. bed to chair, chair to shower.

Who is covered?

Hospice care is a benefit that is generally covered by all insurances to include Medicare, Medicaid, VA, and private insurance. To qualify adults must have a terminal condition.

Hospice eligibility

A terminal condition or prognosis is generally defined as the patient’s life expectancy or the typical course of the condition is six months or less. Hospice care is not limited to only 6-months if the patient lives longer as they may be recertified by a physician for additional time in hospice care, or in the case where their health improves; they may be discharged from hospice care and vice versa.

Palliative care

The Palliative Care team may include a physician and/or a nurse practitioner, who provides consultation visits in your place of residence. Nurses and Social Workers can also help with Chronic Care management in a limited fashion. Palliative Care like hospice is focused on the patient’s comfort and goals of care, but does not require a terminal prognosis. Palliative Care is paid for by insurance companies in a similar fashion that your clinic doctor visits are paid for as there may be some copay’s as mandated by your insurance
