The Health Center Respite Care
Short-term stays here are designed to fulfill numerous important purposes.
For those with shorter-term needs, The Health Center offers fully furnished private rooms for respite stays of three to thirty days (depending on availability).
A respite guest might be someone recuperating from a period of hospitalization, or a person who needs some assistance while their usual care partner is on vacation or attending to other needs. Many individuals who are considering a more permanent move to The Health Center find a respite stay ideal for “sampling” the lifestyle there.
Respite guests enjoy a friendly environment with access to all the services and amenities offered to Health Center residents and attention to safety and security measures, including:
- A home-like atmosphere
- On-site staff 24-hours a day
- Medication monitoring
- Assistance with bathing, dressing and grooming
- Balanced, therapeutic meals and snacks
- Housekeeping, linen & laundry service
- Participation in the full schedule of Health Center social and recreational activities
New surroundings, a host of stimulating activities, and warm personal care all come together to give our respite guests a refreshing change from their regular routine.
