Qualifying Factors for Respite Stays at Ryan House

Ryan House provides respite, palliative and end-of-life care for those families with a child 17 years or younger, diagnosed with a life-threatening condition and who could benefit from an overnight short-term respite stay. Families are never charged a fee to utilize the services available. Our Care Team works with each family to determine the qualification of each child. As we provide a variety of services, each child is reviewed individually for their unique needs and qualification. Families may be asked to provide a medical history and physical by their child’s primary care physician.
