Hospice Respite Care

(Taking a Break)

Respite care is provided at Shepherd’s Cove for a stay of up to 5 days at a time. Caregiving is an exhausting job, albeit one that is done out of love. Respite care is provided if the family is exhausted and needs a break from caring for someone with a life limiting illness, or if a joyous family event such as a wedding may require caregivers to be out of town for several days. If this is the case, then Shepherd’s Cove can assist in providing a safe, comfortable environment for the patient.
