In-Patient Respite

I feel like this page doesnt' really say .. who might need this and how it works through Valor. 

its say we choose the place carefully and it's not ours it's someone else's facility but we can offer it to you. but I'm not sure if I am the who.

Are you looking for support for a short time to enable your loved one to stay at home? We can help.

If patients need short-term acute or chronic symptom care beyond routine care in the home setting, Valor HospiceCare has arrangements with local Medicare-certified Skilled Nursing Facilities ("SNF"). Qualified facilities on our program are hand selected by our standards for their quality of care, reputation and geographic convenience to our patients, caregivers and families.

All facilities must meet not only Medicare standards for skilled care, but also Valor HospiceCare & The Valor Institute for Palliative Medicine quality standards - assuring a seamless continuity of care. Our partnering facilities have all received our "Certificate of Authorization" plaques for our in-service training from our PatientCareTM Program.

In addition, to support from our Clinical Liaison for SNF's, care is coordinated through our Registered Nurse Case Managers and visits occur daily by core team members. We also offer respite care in the same facilities to support the needs of the caregiver and family. For a list of providers in your community, please contact us.

When medically necessary, Medicare, Medicaid/AHCCCS and most plans cover inpatient or respite care. If a patient stays in an authorized Skilled Nursing Facility beyond what's medically needed, the cost of room and board become the responsibility of the patient and family. For further information, please contact us at 877.615.3996.
