Residential hospice care

Residential hospice care is provided when care is needed 24 hours a day. It is offered in a freestanding facility that has a home-like setting. Residential hospice is a good option when:

  • family and friends are not able to provide care at home but want their loved one to be in a home-like setting
  • the patient does not have any family or friends nearby to care for him or her
  • the caregiver needs a break from his or her caregiving responsibilities. Hospice patients can stay up to 5 days for respite care.

A residential hospice can give peace to spouses, family and friends who cannot provide the round-the-clock care their loved ones need, but want to honor their loved one's request to be in a home-like setting. It can provide a caring alternative when caregiving at home is no longer an option.
