No matter the level of care selected for you and your loved ones, caregivers and the interdisciplinary care team are committed to and active in delivering superior care.
Patients receive respite care in a facility on a short-term basis, for up to five consecutive days, to provide caregiver relief before returning to their home. These short-term stays allow patients to receive appropriate, around-the-clock care and symptom management while caregivers are provided a much-needed break to tend to their own needs or take a vacation.
Caring for a loved one with a terminal illness is demanding work and when caregivers feel overwhelmed, they can request respite care. There are no limits or restrictions to the reasons a caregiver may request respite care, and many do so to attend important events or simply to have a break to rest.
During respite care, patients continue to receive the high quality of care they received at home under the care of the hospice care team who is available around the clock for whatever needs arise.
