Celebrating 20 years of partnering with area hospitals

by | Apr 18, 2023 | The Center’s Words

The Center for Respite Care, founded 20 years, ago receives clients from a variety of sources. A primary source is area hospitals. This means that when hospitals discharge people — who have nowhere else to go and need to continue to heal — the Center becomes their place.

It also means that the hospitals can save money as it costs significantly less for the Center to care for individuals — than residence in the traditional hospital environment. Ultimately this saves the system resources while clients can transition to healthy living. In addition to saving system resources, and equally important is the knowledge gained by the clients as they establish personal health literacy and community supports to assist in their transition to healthy and stable living.

We are grateful for our relationship with the medical organizations and the financial gifts they impart to us.

Thank you to the following for being our friends and partners.
