Respite Care

Respite Care is provided when family members acting as the patient’s primary caregiver need a break. The hospice team makes arrangements to have the patient transferred to a Medicare-approved facility for up to five days at a time while the family gets some much needed rest.

When the Comfort Care Center (Hospice Home Care’s Inpatient Facility) is available, respite care can be provided at that location. If the respite stay is in a hospital or nursing home, the patient’s hospice team still oversees the care provided.

Services provided by hospice include:

  • Bathing and personal care by a certified nursing assistant
  • Regular visits from the Hospice Chaplain, Social Worker and Volunteer Coordinator
  • Hospice-trained and certified volunteer support
  • Family bereavement services
  • Medication management & pharmacy pick-up as needed
  • Medical equipment and supplies
  • Regular individual patient care plan meetings with facility staff


Hospice services are covered by Medicare or Medicaid, private insurance, private pay or through charitable care. This care is provided to all in need of our services regardless of age, sex, race, creed, marital status, sexual orientation, color, national origin, religion, citizenship status, veteran status, illness, handicap, disability or ability to pay.

Hospice does not mean giving up hope! It is possible that a patient will improve, resulting in discharge from hospice services. Or the patient or caregiver might decide to stop hospice care to seek aggressive, curative treatment. Hospice services can easily be resumed, if needed, at a later time.
