Patients and their visitors often ask for help in finding accommodations
so loved ones can stay close to patients. For a list of local hotels, click

People whose loved ones are hospitalized and have no place to stay may
qualify for lodging to keep them nearby thanks to a community partnership
forged by Visalia Rotary Clubs and Kaweah Delta Health Care District.
The availability for lodging is needs based and is determined by social
workers at the hospital.
In September 2016, Kaweah Delta Health Care District took over a lease
to operate and manage the Rotary Respite House, a joint effort of all
Visalia Rotary Clubs. The availability for lodging is needs based and
will be determined by members of Kaweah Delta’s Patient and Family Services.
The Respite House, known as “Al’s Place” in honor of
Rotarian Al Fisher and “Sharon’s Place” in honor of
Sharon Shannon, is two units, one with three bedrooms and two baths and
one with two bedrooms and two baths, plus laundry rooms. The house, located
in close proximity to Kaweah Delta Medical Center is fully furnished.
