Inpatient Care Center
Pathways Inpatient Hospice Care
Pathways provides acute inpatient care when needed in a comfortable and quiet setting at Lemay Avenue Health and Rehab in Fort Collins, a temporary location until our new 12-bed freestanding inpatient care center opens this summer.
The General Inpatient (GIP) level of hospice care is for patients with severe symptoms that cannot be effectively managed at home. The inpatient care setting at Lemay Avenue operates every day of the year and is staffed with Registered Nurses, Certified Nurse Aides, Social Workers, Counselors, Chaplains, Music Therapists and Volunteers to meet patient and family needs as they arise.
The Pathways medical team of Physicians and Nurse Practitioners are available daily to provide expert medical care to relieve pain and suffering from difficult symptoms. The Pathways team collaborates directly with each patient’s Primary Care Physician to coordinate goals of care and transition out of the inpatient setting if a patient’s condition stabilizes.
The care center is also available for Respite Care, an opportunity for exhausted or overwhelmed caregivers to get some relief while the patient has a brief stay at the care center.
What to Expect
The rooms at Lemay Avenue are specifically designed for inpatient hospice care, while providing a comfortable and peaceful environment for patients and families.
