Respite Care Residents Receive The Same Amenities and Activities As Full-Time Resident

What is Respite Care?

Respite care is a temporary (short-term) stay at a senior living community.

Why Respite Care?

Respite care is often suggested for seniors who are recovering from a hospital visit, fall, surgery or other health circumstance, but is also available for caregiver vacations, business travel and/or just a personal break from daily care routine. A Respite Stay is also an ideal trial period for both the caregiver and the loved one to evaluate if our community is the right place to call home long-term.

Short-Term Stay Testimonial

The community is so well-maintained, and the attention to detail, along with the caring and compassionate staff made my short-term stay enjoyable and memorable. I plan to come back once a month to play the piano for the residents and staff. I found it to be a wonderful place, a true gem in the area.
