Medicare Certification is the “gold standard’ in the U.S. and serves as a benchmark against which all other forms of patient care are compared.
With Medicare Certification the highest level of quality and safety are assured for all patients of Continuum Care.
Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) is regarded as one of the key benchmarks for measuring the quality of a health care organization. Accreditation is a process of review that allows healthcare organizations to demonstrate their ability to meet superior regulatory requirements and standards.
Hospice is a special kind of caring. Hospice care involves a team-oriented approach to expert medical care, pain management and emotional and spiritual support, expressly tailored to the patient’s needs and wishes. Support is extended to the patient’s loved ones as well. At the center of hospice is the belief that each of us has the right to die pain-free and with dignity. Hospice is dedicated to making that possible.

Continuum Care Home Health understands that each patient is unique and has different needs. We get to know you, your family and your individual needs and desires so we can deliver the personalized, high-quality care you need and deserve. We strive to provide comfort and guidance to you and your family members, whether you’re recovering from surgery or living with a terminal illness.
Whether you are recovering from major surgery, or require Hospice Care, Continuum Care Nurses make regularly scheduled visits to help address the medical concerns of the patient. The nurse will explain all aspects and progressions of care, and will teach family members how to do physical care. All medication orders come from the attending physician.
The Hospice Nurse is available by phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for emergency calls.
Continuum Care is affiliated with two premier Virgin Islands Physicians serving as Medical Directors:
David Weisher, MD
Elizabeth DelGiacco, DO
Our experienced and highly trained caregivers provide the highest quality of care to both patients and their families. The home health aide is provided for your personal care. This includes assistance as needed for your bath, grooming, mouth care and linen changes. Our goal is to help individuals and their loved ones live happy and fulfilling lives.
The CCI physician complements the services of the attending physician and intervenes to meet the general medical needs of the terminally ill patient. Important functions of the CCI physicians include the certification of the patient’s terminal illness, direction of group conferences, consultation visits, as well as overall program evaluation to ensure quality of care and appropriateness of care/services.
The Spiritual Counselor at CCVI is available for visits and to provide help and support with your spiritual needs. There is always someone to care for you on a spiritual level. If you are already getting care from your own church, mosque or synagogue, the CCVI Spiritual Counselor will not interfere. If you do not belong to any faith based organization, our Spiritual Counselor will be happy to minister to you.
Patients often experience decreased appetite, nausea, vomiting, pain and constipation. The most common problems many families face are finding the right kinds of foods and difficulty in getting the patient to eat. Our Registered Dietitians can provide suggestions and guidance in the proper approach to feeding and schedule.
The CCVI Social Worker provides emotional support, helping the patient and family members cope and adjust to the illness of the patient and the impact on everyone in the family. They assist caregivers in the many facets of end-of-life planning and resources. Providing information and guidance regarding loss and the normal grieving process, their experience and assistance is invaluable in helping to find ways to fulfill individual and family needs.
Advance Medical Directives can limit life-prolonging measures when there's little or no chance of recovery. Advance directives and Living Wills may enable one to make their feelings known about many things. Discuss your wishes with your family and friends, your physician, your faith community leader and your lawyer.
Volunteers are the Heart Beat of Hospice - Without the efforts of volunteers, hospices could not continue their important work. Volunteers are the backbone of the hospice team. They allow our hospice program to provide services it otherwise could not offer.
“ Continuum Care, Inc., a very professionally managed entity under the astute leadership of Tracy Sanders, offers not just services, but a service delivery. This is critical. Hospice care requires a planned service delivery system composed of a qualified administration and management component; qualified, reliable and sensitive home care personnel and of most importance, applicable and reasonably priced individualized services designed to meet not just the needs of the masses but the individual client's needs. Continuum Care makes all of the above and much more available to the residents of the U.S. Virgin Islands. "
“ Thank you, Continuum Care Inc., for helping me with my family member, who is 94 years old. You have been so caring, committed and concerned in helping my family. Thank you for the times I personally had to call you for help –for myself as a caretaker. You were so willing to visit and sit down with us to help us understand what the elderly is going through. ”
“ Thank you for the loving and compassionate care you gave my wife. By caring for her, you were also caring for me. I was lost and do not know what I would have done without you assisting us every step of her final days. I can never repay you except to continue to keep all of you in my prayers that you are able to continue to help others as you have helped me and my family. "
