South Park Inn’s Respite program is a collaborative effort with Hartford Health Care. In the former sanctuary area of the building, respite guests are offered space to transition and recuperate. Guests that are no longer in need of inpatient hospitalization, but that have no current home-based support system in place may be referred to the program.
Respite provides a comfortable, safe, temporary space to foster ongoing recovery from acute illnesses, with the goal of reducing rapid re-utilization of the hospital system. Guests have many amenities, including 24 hours staff supervision, meals, snacks, toiletries and hygiene items, cable television, laundry facilities, and transportation to medical appointments. Additionally, guests are offered individualized case management services to assist with housing, obtaining income, and scheduling follow up care.
