- You've likely thought of this, however just in case not:
1. Some kind of patient advocate at the CC - get yourself one who might be able to guide you to some kind of registry of rentals for this very purpose - and beyond.
[Wouldn't it be nice if Buzz Lightyear would come to your aid, eh?]
Google tells me there is a hotel nearby that has lots of room for this purpose with CC pts. However, the article I found did not specify the "reasonable" special rates. I forget the name.
2. If you happen to be over 50 years young, even if not an AARP member, you might be able to connect with the AARP in Cleveland and ask for suggestions
- not just for a room rental but for some kinds of help either volunteer or reasonable rate for patients who need some level of support.
Nutrition will be of great concern and you might scout out proper food markets who might deliver real food to you in whatever form / ingredients will be allowed.
If they want to put you on "Ensure" - as that's loaded with high fructose corn syrup and other crap, there are much healthier options but forethought required for that.
A great organic free grazing bone broth sold in many stores, frozen: Bonafide. Beef or Chicken.
3. Used to be, though with changes, not sure now but check to see if travel to and lodging / expenses for medical purposes is tax deductible. Keep track, anyway and you can check later when you are better.
has dedicated resources and programs that enhance the patient and family experience, while also improving clinical outcomes.

Scrolling thorough, I don't see the kinds of lodging / near CC support that I'm thinking of but call them and ask.
Of interest, too: Be sure you are in the areas that have this feature (hopefully full CC does but sometimes, it's just part of the buildings). I hope this is more than just passing out ear plugs.
Quiet at Night:
Adequate rest is a key element in helping patients heal. An enterprise-wide "Quiet at Night" improvement team created guidelines, including H.U.S.H. (Help Us Support Healing) protocol, to reduce nighttime noise in our hospitals.
This includes specific interventions to reduce noise and provide a restful, healing environment for our patients from 9 p.m. - 7 a.m. -
