When you refer patients to Northern Illinois Hospice at discharge, we follow them home to ensure they have the support they need for a higher quality of life. Our expert care helps manage their symptoms and support family caregivers, resulting in fewer ER visits and significant reductions in hospital readmissions. Our care even can help improve your HCAHPS scores, particularly in patient perspectives of pain management and transition of care.
Our experts can become an extension of your team, bringing specialized expertise in end-of-life symptom management and high acuity care. By partnering with Northern Illinois Hospice, you can keep residents in your facilities even after skilled nursing benefit days are depleted.
Your team can focus on their normal support activities while our team assists with expert clinical, emotional and spiritual care for your residents – keeping them in the home they love and out of the ER or hospital.
