What are the benefits?


The Bridge Program reduces trips to the emergency room or hospitalizations, leading to a more stable quality of life and helping patients better manage their disease and symptoms at home.

Because A Plus provides both restorative and palliative in-home care--with experienced professionals in a collaborative, patient-centered, team environment--we are equipped to help

  • Minimize patient family stress and confusion during a difficult time

  • Avoid unnecessary hospital visits and trips to the doctor

  • Provide a "go-to" source for concerns and questions--someone who is coordinating with an inter-disciplinary team

  • Maintain the same in-home care team across the spectrum of restorative and palliative care

  • Manage pain and healthcare needs in a home environment (home, apartment, assisted-living facility, board-and-care, senior housing, and in some cases: a skilled nursing facility)

The right level of care, at the right time, with the right team

The Bridge to Hospice program offers coordination of care for patients and families coping with end-stage chronic illness or life-limiting illness. Frequently, hospice nurses take on ‘bridge’ patients who are still seeking active treatment for life-threatening illnesses, or who are not emotionally ready to consider hospice. This collaboration between our home health and hospice teams ensure a smooth, timely and seamless transition from home health to hospice care.
