What is Respite Care?
Sometimes referred to as a “short term stay,” our respite care services can provide a short-term break for families and other unpaid caregivers… whether for a week or a few months. Short-term stays are designed for older adults who wish to try out senior living or could benefit from added support on a temporary basis. Respite care is a also great option for seniors who want to give their normal caregivers a break or when their families travel out of town.
Peace of Mind Knowing Your Loved One is in Good Hands
We understand that there are a number of factors that may require a short, temporary stay. Caregiving can be a rewarding and bonding experience within a family, yet sometimes the responsibility of a non-stop routine and stressful daily tasks can become overwhelming. When family caregivers become emotionally drained, they become less effective in performing this critical role. This is where respite care can help. Although short-term, we provide ongoing friendly assistance with daily living activities as needed, extended comfort to our residents, along with relief and peace of mind to family members. We offer a welcoming environment and treat our respite care residents with the same level of compassion, respect and commitment to service that we provide to our permanent residents.
The social aspects of respite care can also be very beneficial. Our short-term residents often make friendships that enrich life in a way that only connecting with others can. We offer a variety of daily programs designed to keep our residents physically and socially active. Click here to view our daily calendar of events.
Respite Care Services with the Same Exceptional Amenities
During their stay, our Respite guests still enjoy the same housekeeping services, community activities, dining, and all other exceptional amenities provided to our normal residents – while benefiting from a relaxing, stress-free environment. Along with our professional, 24-hour staff, below are some of the services, support and amenities for seniors needing temporary care:
- Professional chef-prepared meals in our beautiful onsite dining room
- Housekeeping and laundry services
- Scheduled transportation to community events
- A daily calendar of events with social opportunities designed for entertainment, learning and creativity
- Exercise and fitness programs
- Personal alert response systems in case of emergencies
Skilled Nursing Care
In addition to our normal resident services, we can also provide a home health aide and/or skilled nursing care to help those who care for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home. Whether the need is for long-term nursing care due to illness or injury, or short-term, concentrated rehabilitation while recovering from a surgical procedure or acute medical condition, our highly-trained compassionate staff is ready and willing to assist. Regardless of the nature or complexity of the medical care required, our goal is always to keep our elderly residents as independent as possible while helping them on the road to recovery. In the case of short-term rehabilitation, our goal is to return residents to their original living situation as soon as possible.
