RESPITE CARE

Take Time to Take Care of Yourself

Approximately 50 million Americans today take care of family members with disabilities and/or chronic illnesses at home. We offer respite care for caregivers who need a break of a few days or even a few weeks.

While many families take great pride in caring for their loved ones at home, the physical, emotional and financial consequences can be overwhelming.

A recent survey found:

  • caregivers are more likely to report health issues, chronic conditions or a disability than non-caregivers
  • caregivers who report stress-related issues are more likely to die sooner than non-caregivers

Respite care provides short-term, temporary nursing care in a home-like setting to family members you typically care for.

You receive the peace of mind that comes from knowing your family members are being cared for 24 hours a day by a dedicated staff of medical professionals. And research has shown that providing respite care can have a positive effect on the health of the caregiver.

Our Respite Care Program includes:

  • an individualized daily exercise program, social and recreational activities
  • physical, occupational and speech-language therapies, as needed
  • balanced, therapeutic meals, snacks and diet education
  • activities that include arts and crafts, live entertainment and day trips
  • religious services
