Respite care: this service is availble to provide support for the carer who is taking care of an elderly person in their own home. This is usually a stay of 1 to 2 week duration.

Short-term convalescent care: usually for a period of 2 to 6 weeks, this stay time allows for recuperation and recovery following an illness or surgery. This service bridges the gap between hospital and home.

Palliative Care / Hospice care:focusing on comfort measures for relief rather than cure.
