WHAT IS THE SCHNEIDMILLER HOUSE?
Hospice of North Idaho built Idaho’s first Hospice inpatient unit in 2011. In 2016, the inpatient unit was named “The Schneidmiller House” in honor of Mannie and Gladys Schneidmiller, local philanthropists, and supporters of the Hospice mission. The Schneidmiller House offers 24-hour, acute hospice care when patients need complex nursing care. The full scope of services are available for patients in a peaceful, home-like environment.
The Schneidmiller House may be utilized when there is an unmanageable crisis due to pain and other symptoms or when care needs are beyond the caregiver’s capacity upon discharge from the hospital. This is high level care like the hospital and is considered an acute stay. The Schneidmiller House may also be an option when caregiver relief is needed. This is called a “respite stay”. During a respite stay, a patient can stay up to five days at a time and is covered by the Hospice Medicare Benefit. Patient’s will receive comprehensive care services Hospice of North Idaho has to offer. Your care team works together to provide the best possible comfort care during the stay at The Schneidmiller House.
