GILCHRIST TRANSITIONS FAQS

What is Transitions?
Transitions is a non-medical service designed to offer assistance, guidance and support for seriously ill patients who are not eligible for or ready to accept hospice. A case manager offers care coordination and assistance with accessing community resources, while volunteers are available to provide hands-on care and support.


What are the benefits to Transitions clients?
For those who were recently on hospice but whose health stabilized, the program offers continuity of care – a scaled down version of the valuable care coordination and psychosocial support they received while on hospice. For those not yet eligible for or ready for hospice, it offers a safety net, ensuring that each client has access to the resources they need to maintain the best possible quality of life, while preparing them for the realities that will arise as their illness or condition progresses.


Who is eligible?
Gilchrist Transitions accepts individuals who have been discharged from hospice care because their health has stabilized, as well as seriously-ill individuals who are either not yet eligible or ready for end of life care and services. Clients are referred to Transitions through their discharge from Gilchrist’s services, as well as through a growing network of outside medical providers.


Transitions care is provided to clients at no cost. Since the program is not reimbursed by Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance, Gilchrist Services relies on the generous financial support of our donors to underwrite the full program cost.
