Respite Care for Families During Hospice
When a senior is ready for in-home hospice care, an increased level of care and responsibility naturally come along with the family’s deepening concerns. Emotions will run high. What’s required of the family can be unrelenting and exhausting in ensuring their senior loved one’s last weeks and days are filled with comfort and dignity.

Sometimes the focus can be so intense, people neglect their most basic needs including showering, eating and sleeping. The option to step away, even briefly, can provide family members with the opportunity to rest, refresh and regroup—knowing their parent, grandparent or spouse is in excellent hands—returning better able to be fully present with their loved one.
