A short-term or respite stay is a convenient option when planned or unforeseen circumstances require a temporary separation from your loved one. Respite stays are available for every level of care we provide (even personal care or skilled nursing care). Respite stays allow caregivers peace of mind when they are called away for business or vacation, or if they just need a short break from caregiving. At Friends Home, we have some short-term stay visitors who just want some time to spend with friends and to take a break from their loving caregiving families!
A respite care stay also offers guests and family members the extra security of skilled nursing assistance during an illness or rehabilitation after a hospital visit, and may even be helpful before, during, or after an emergency affecting the senior’s home environment. Many of the residents of Friends Home started with a short-term stay to “give it a try” and decided to make us home.
