Caring for a family member on hospice can span weeks or even months. The Caregiver Respite Fund allows hospice to further assist our patients and families by providing funds to hire a professional caregiver to help those who need a break from the day-to-day caretaking that is required when a loved one is dying. Respite hours have been used to enable caregivers to care for their own health needs, attend family commitments, or simply give the caretaker additional support as they begin to manage their new normal at home. This fund has also been used in emergency situations where the usual caregiver is no longer available. This fund makes sure that our Hospice patients are always cared for and safe.
