Tidewell Hospice has partnered with Village on the Isle to open an inpatient hospice unit at the continuing-care retirement community in Venice. The Tidewell Care Center at Village on the Isle will occupy eight of the 64 private suites and is scheduled to open Oct. 13, 2020.
The unit will be staffed around the clock by Tidewell Hospice clinical professionals. Criteria for admission will be the same as it is for Tidewell’s other care centers and hospice houses. Patients in need of continuous symptom control can be admitted to the Care Center for around-the-clock care while their condition is stabilized. When those symptoms are brought under control, they can return to their residence, wherever that may be.
The Tidewell Care Center is part of a recent expansion at Village on the Isle that includes the addition of a new 66,000-square foot state-of-the-art health venter featuring all private suites and amenities for residents who need around-the-clock nursing care and short-term rehabilitative support.
