Stories & Tributes

My husband, Steve, battled pancreatic cancer for almost two years, bravely and confidently, until the cancer took control. When he arrived at Quiet Oaks one Thursday night in June, he had taken a turn for the worse. From the time we arrived at Quiet Oaks, until his passing 5 days later, he was treated with care and respect. My children and I spent the days and nights there, to be with him, and we too were treated very well. Thank you so much for the amazing care he received during his last days, and for all the kindness shown to our family by the entire staff at Quiet Oaks.

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 $415 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 respire 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.
