Respite Care Services
Our Respite Care Program provides a great opportunity for caretakers and/or family members to attend festivities, take a vacation or just spend an afternoon resting without worrying about the care of their loved ones. Perhaps a caretaker just needs a break from the day-to-day responsibilities.
- Your loved one will be considered a guest at Hemphill County Hospital (HCH) and will be given round-the-clock care and attention.
- Upon arrival at HCH a guest registration will be completed by a registered nurse that will ask pertinent questions regarding medications, activities of daily living and other personal needs.
- Guests must bring their own medications and medical supplies needed for their care.
- The Respite Care Program at HCH should not be confused with an admission to the hospital requiring the services of a physician, it does however require a physician’s referral to receive respite care services.
Unfortunately, insurance does not cover any respite care. HCH charges a daily fee based on the level of care required.The friendly, professional staff of HCH helps you take the break you desperately need and deserve!
