Respite refers to a short time of rest or relief for the caregiver. Getting help is essential for your health, and your resilience is critical for your loved one. It provides a break from the typical care routine, allowing the caregiver some time to relieve stress, restore energy and seek assistance needed to meet personal needs, as well as other responsibilities.
Respite benefits both the caregiver and the care receiver. Respite care is provided in our luxurious and accommodating skilled nursing facility.
Our social workers work directly with families and will handle the details of placement, determination of benefits to help defray expenses and assistance in preparing schedules for visitations and other personal needs. They are also available for the resident, answering questions and reassuring those who may be confused or distressed by the change in their lifestyle. Our pastoral staff is also available to attend to the spiritual needs of our patients and residents, as well as to support loved ones and friends in challenging times.
We can accommodate overnight, weekend and longer stays when needed. We provide meals, help with the activities of daily living and therapeutic activities to fit the needs of the care receiver.
