Respite Care- A Break for Caregivers
Respite care is an ideal solution for providing your loved one with individualized care in a safe, nurturing environment with a professional staff to support all their needs. Seeking support and maintaining your own health is key to managing your role as a caregiver, as becoming primary caregiver can be rewarding, yet emotionally and physically challenging. Seeking occasional respite from caregiving responsibilities will help to reduce stress and refresh your energy levels.
Things to Consider When Looking into Respite Care
Do you need a break from caregiving?
Respite provides peace of mind for caregivers looking for a safe, secure environment for their loved ones while taking a vacation, requiring time away for a specific purpose, or just desiring a much-needed break.
Do you want to try out senior living?
As stays range from one week to several months, respite care is the perfect opportunity to try out an assisted living community before making a long-term commitment. Statistically, a significant number of our residents choose Collingswood Manor as the result of respite trials. They find new friends, indulge in new hobbies, and live their life to the fullest.
Do you need a place to stay as you transition to home from a hospital or short-term rehabilitation stay?
Following a rehab stay, people often select a respite stay to ensure they are back on their feet before returning home. We offer nursing and rehabilitation assistance both during an illness and after a hospital visit.
We invite you to come spend time at Collingswood. At United Methodist Communities, our professional staff can help make these transitions seamless for you or your elderly loved one.
Once you see the respite care difference found at United Methodist Communities you will rest easy knowing your elderly loved one will be properly cared for. To learn more about respite care or to tour our respite care center contact Collingswood today.
