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 Grace Healthcare of Decatur 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 Decatur 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.
