Extended care, a private pay service, is available in the home as a vital source of continuing care for individuals who are recovering from a medical procedure or condition. Care is also available in the hospital or nursing home as a complement to traditional inpatient care. A patient returning home from the hospital typically needs 4-8 hours of service per day, but services can be provided for a minimum of two hours.
