Respite Care Options
Arrange respite stays for as little as one day to long as you need. Caregiving can be physically and mentally draining job. You deserve a break!
Caregivers are often hesitant to take vacations due to feelings of anxiety or guilt. It can be very difficult to entrust a loved one to an assisted living facility, even for a short period. It can be equally as challenging to trust another person to provide the same level of care that you do. At Assisted Living at Pine Hill, we understand these concerns. We go above and beyond to provide a safe, comfortable place with a family-oriented, social atmosphere where your loved one will be in professional, caring hands. Come visit our facility and see for yourself!
How Respite Stays Work
Short term stays are an excellent option for caregivers who deserve a vacation. Seniors are welcome to settle into fully furnished apartments where a range of services are included, such as medication management, housekeeping, laundry, and personal grooming. Freshly prepared meals are served three times a day, so you don’t need to worry about your loved one eating well while you’re gone. Staff is available 24 hours a day, including highly trained nursing professionals. Everything that is available to full-time residents is offered to those joining Pine Hill Assisted Living for respite stays!
While You’re Away
It’s often possible to check on your loved one while you’re on vacation with a quick phone call or email. You will be able to provide an emergency number for yourself, as well as contact information for someone local in case anything urgent arises. It’s important to remember that respite stays allow seniors to socialize in a new setting, which can help the time pass quickly until their caregivers return. Even if your loved one has seemed shy lately, he or she may be surprised at how naturally making friends still comes when there is a group of people at similar phases in their lives. Organized activities and entertainment can help your loved one enjoy the accommodations, even if just for a few days. We do our very best to make you and your loved one comfortable.
A bonus to booking a short-term stay is that you can build a relationship with a care home that may be perfect for future extended stays!
