Recovering from a medical condition or surgery can be stressful. At The Cypress of Hilton Head, we understand, which is why we offer respite care for individuals who need temporary assistance while they focus on getting well.

What is respite care?

The Cypress of Hilton Head provides respite care for older adults recovering from surgery or a medical condition. Not only that, respite care can provide caregivers relief from duties of taking care of a family member or friend.

Is respite care right for my loved one?

Respite care is a fit for any older adult who requires assistance on a short-term basis. This may be due to illness, injury or to provide a caregiver temporary relief. The duration of respite care varies based on how long the individual requires care and more.
