Welcome to CaringStay

CaringStay is a new idea — a network of private homes that offer respite for individuals in need. Our Certified Hosts have a spare room and the willingness to make a difference. They offer guests not just a cozy bed and good food but companionship and time. This creates an atmosphere where you can relax and unwind.

CaringStay does not provide any medical care or service. Specific medical needs should be addressed by qualified healthcare professionals. That is outside of the scope of CaringStay’s services.

Our Guests are individuals seeking a place to rest, relax, and recharge before embarking on their personal recovery journey. Whether you’ve recently left the hospital or simply crave an escape from life’s demands, CaringStay is there, ready to help.
