River Hospital can also provide short term respite care on our Sub Acute rehab unit. This is a self- pay service and patients will be accepted on a case to case basis, based on a review of the patient’s needs. Please call for more information.
Respite Care services are short-term care services provided due to absence or need for relief of the family member(s) or primary caregiver.
The caregivers' needs are often unrecognized and unaddressed. Caregivers are at risk for fatigue, burnout and decline in their own physical and mental health.
River Hospital is able to offer Respite Care to provide caregivers a well-deserved rest, for up to two weeks. Respite Care is not generally covered by insurances but is self-pay. This contract is for reasonable rates to provide caregivers with peace of mind that their loved ones are well cared for.
