Respite stays are short-term, overnight stays for a few days to a few weeks. Respite care at a senior living community is ideal for seniors that are not strong enough to return home after a hospital stay.
Guests enjoy all services and amenities of our community such as three meals per day including those that accommodate special diets, along with snacks; assistance with personal care such as bathing, dressing, toileting, grooming, and incontinence care; medication management; housekeeping and laundry services; transportation to outings and medical appointments; and engaging programming and educational activities. Our staff will coordinate with physicians for health concerns and home health agencies to provide on-site services such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy needs.
Respite care can also serve as a needed break to the caregiver and provides a positive experience for the person receiving the care by letting him or her interact with someone other than the primary caregiver in a safe and supportive environment. By taking time to look after your own needs, including health, exercise and social interaction, you can ensure that you’re able to look after your loved one to the best of your ability and give that person the care that is needed.
Respite stays are based on community availability. Stays are purchased in advance and are defined by a minimum and maximum number of days allowed per stay. The cost per day is a prorated amount, calculated from the individual community’s apartment rental and service fees. Care level services associated with the stay may also apply. No community fee is required for respite stays. Costs associated with respite care are not covered by insurance or Medicare. Fees are payable to the community.
