Respite Care is provided on a first-come, space-available basis. There is no guarantee that a bed may be reserved for a specific timeframe. Respite Care durations may be between two (2) and 30 consecutive days.

Respite residents must complete the same application process as Residential Care residents. A Level of Care (LOC) evaluation must be performed by an applicant’s primary care physician (PCP) prior to admission. Once the PCP has completed the Hawai‘i State LOC evaluation form, the Home’s Director of Nursing will perform an admission assessment, which takes into consideration: medical condition(s) and nursing needs; ability to manage daily routines; ambulatory status; activities of daily living (ADLs) – bathing, dressing, grooming, etc.; and behavioral issues.

Depending on the individual’s care needs, Respite Care fees range from $225 to $275 per night, plus a one-time $50 application fee.
