Senior Respite Care
Caregiving for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia is physically and emotionally demanding. It is normal for family members and caregivers to need a break. Utilizing senior respite care can strengthen your caregiving abilities by giving you time to re-energize, refresh, and take care of yourself before returning to work at full capacity.
WHAT IS RESPITE CARE?
Respite care refers to a person’s short-term stay at senior living community or facility. Respite care is an option for the elderly that are recovering from hospitalization. Respire care services are also available to senior citizens that want to participate in a temporary trial period at a assisted living facility to confirm it aligns with their physical requirements and lifestyle.
This short-term nursing home program is also available to caregivers and family members that are looking to schedule a break or vacation. The staff at Terra Vista in Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois will care for your family member while you rejuvenate. Lastly, Respite care services for the elderly are also available for emergencies, unplanned situations, and unexpected trips.
In the case of a person with Alzheimer’s or dementia, the circumstances require specific care. Respite care services give people with Alzheimer’s and dementia the opportunity to interact with others at a safe and welcoming memory care facility that provides a safe and supportive environment that is designed to stimulate and promote memory care.
