Respite care is a short-term stay for individuals whose primary caregivers will be temporarily unavailable to provide the care they need. An individual may need respite care while their caregiver is in the hospital, on vacation, or dozens of other reasons. Gracedale is here to assist families with temporary care whether it be planned or due to an emergency.

Respite stays are only covered by insurance for specific reasons such as for an individual receiving hospice services in the community or already receiving certain support in the community. Our admissions office can answer any questions you have related to potential coverage options for respite care.

We are here to work with families to provide the care our residents need. If cost is a concern please reach out to our admissions department directly to discuss options including potential Medicaid eligibility.
