Inpatient Program

Bailey-Boushay House specializes in the complex nursing care needs of people with advanced AIDS and HIV-related diseases, with a staff-to-patient ratio not provided in other facilities. Our intensive nursing care model also serves people with and without AIDS who require end of life care, including those with:

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease)
  • Huntington's disease
  • Any illness limiting a person’s life expectancy to less than three months

In addition, outpatients experiencing episodes of acute illness requiring 24-hour skilled nursing care may enter the inpatient program to regain their health and return to outpatient care.

Bailey-Boushay House functions more like a home with nurses than a traditional nursing home. Around-the-clock care is not only focused on the needs of the patient, but on the important people in the patient's life. Partners, friends and family members are included in creating treatment plans as trusted allies in the patient's care. Social and cultural diversity is respected and honored by our staff members, who actively participate with families and loved ones to honor special wishes and needs during the patient's stay.

The residence's 35 private rooms can be decorated to help every patient feel at home. A living room, dining room, meditation room, greenhouse and four solaria offer open community spaces unique to our facility. Services for patients are designed to help those with the most complex care needs feel well and engage in restorative activities.

Services include:

  • Treatments by occupational, physical, and speech therapists to increase function and wellness
  • Individual and group counseling by experienced social workers
  • Opportunities to exercise, make art, enjoy music, and socialize under the guidance of recreation therapists
  • Spiritual guidance from a chaplain
  • Food program and nutritional counseling supported by a dietitian
  • Psychiatric care from an in-house psychiatrist and dedicated social workers

Clinicians at Bailey-Boushay House treat the whole person, not just the diagnosis. Patients facing the end of life are supported medically, emotionally, and spiritually in an environment that emphasizes quality of life.
