Everyone needs a rest from time to time. The caregiving role can be tough, especially when significant medical needs are present or when one requires consistent attention throughout the day and night. Respite care is a short-term stay program for seniors that allows home caregivers to take a break and recharge.
There are times when you may need to leave home and are unable to take your loved one with you. A business trip may be necessary, or maybe you need some time to regroup. Heritage Health offers short-term stays with around the clock care by our skilled and compassionate staff. Separate from daycare services, during respite care your senior stays at our campus and is cared for the entire duration of their stay, not just during the day.
Are you looking for a permanent home for your loved one, but you aren't sure what to expect during the transition? If so, respite care can be an opportunity for a senior to start to become familiar with the new surroundings. A short stay of a couple of days may be just what your loved one needs to get comfortable with the nursing home environment and team.
When your loved one stays at Heritage Health, whether for a short stay or an extended period of time, we treat them with care and compassion. The services and amenities your loved one will have access to are:
- Medication management
- Personal assistance
- 24-hour nursing care
- Assistance at mealtime
- Quality nutrition options
- Laundry services
- Housekeeping services
Call or visit one of our Heritage campuses today to inquire about respite care options for the senior in your life. When you need someone to step in, we’ll be there. The caring and compassionate team at Heritage will treat your family as part of ours.
