If you are traveling alone and need assistance following your surgery, we also offer caretaking assistance. Anyone staying with us for “stage 1” *MUST* have a caretaker for their first 2 weeks out of the hospital. This can be a partner, family member, or a friend, but you can’t be alone.

This is to ensure that people are safe in our space and that we as a program are protecting the space and reducing our liability. If paying for caretaking is a barrier to surgery and lodging, please get in touch and we might be able to offer some creative solutions. We hope to be able to offer scholarships in the future to assist with both lodging and caretaking costs. Until that time we are using this model to remain sustainable.

The first 7 days out of the hospital our caretaking fees are $100/day and then $75 per day thereafter.

1st week = $700

2nd week = $525
