Respite Care

What is Respite Care?

Respite care gives caregivers a break from caring for their loved one. A short-term stay at Quiet Oaks offers around-the-clock skilled nursing care for an individual with a “life limiting disease” and gives families a chance to rest from being caregivers.

Quiet Oaks Respite Services

Respite care provides the resident with a basic room, board and nursing care for the daily charge of $465 per day. Quiet Oaks provides a resident suite, resident meals — appropriate to meet the needs of the resident, snacks, and beverages. Quiet Oaks employs RNs, LPNs and CNAs 24 hours/day, seven days/week and sufficient in number to meet the varying needs of our residents.

In addition, we have trained volunteers throughout the day of the week to assist staff, resident, family and guests. Please inquire with our staff about the services available to families.  Quiet Oaks also provides basic equipment and supplies to support delivery of care services, including bed linens and other items for personal care.  Residents will be offered a full or partial bath daily. An interdisciplinary team consisting of a medical director, nursing staff, volunteer coordinator and chaplain are available to meet with respite residents and/or responsible persons as requested. All prescription medications are to be administered only by Quiet Oaks staff. Telephones, televisions and CD/radios are provided in each room. Housekeeping and laundry services are also included.

The Quiet Oaks daily charge for respite care does not include the following: personal clothing, incontinent products, specialized or adaptive equipment and supplies, beauty and barber services, therapies by licensed therapists, prescription medications, transportation, oxygen, laboratory fees (tests), physician, dental, podiatry and psychiatric care. When the resident is being followed by a Home Care or Hospice Agency, the services provided by the agency are not included in the Quiet Oaks daily charge rate.
