Our team manages a Respite Stay program that provides caregivers time off from caring for a loved one at home. Whether for a long weekend or for a few weeks, family members can feel secure knowing their loved one is provided with a safe, home-like healthcare setting where both short- and long-term residents receive clinical monitoring by an educated, skilled staff whose goal is to meet needs quickly. Our Soddy-Daisy Health Care Center respite stay guests experience all of the same amenities and activities that our residents enjoy daily.

Residents under the Medicare hospice benefit can stay as Soddy-Daisy respite guests for up to five days. Ninety-five percent of the Medicare-approved amount for respite care will be covered by Medicare; a small copayment for prescriptions and an in-patient respite stay of 5% of the Medicare-approved amount may be required.

Respite care not under the Medicare hospice benefit is available through private pay, and may be covered in part by funding from a community program. To learn more about the costs, please contact our Business Office Manager to discuss payment options.
