Respite Care at Merryvale Assisted Living
Our Short Term Stay & Transitional Care Program
You will see many Assisted Living, Independent Living, and Alzheimer’s Care communities requiring a 30 or 60-day minimum when it comes to their respite programs. We are a different kind of community and tailor our offerings to your needs – with a 14-day minimum stay being our hallmark. Our goal is to make this accommodating to your schedule, not our own.
You or your loved one is able to fully experience all the benefits of living at our community without a long-term commitment – all of the wonderful programs, making friends, companionship, security, meals and personal care – while you have total peace of mind! Our assisted living and independent living communities eliminate isolation, improve nutrition and enhance overall well-being, especially helpful after a hospitalization, while our Rose Lane Memory Care Communities provide a calm, caring, secure environment and the benefits of our innovative programming which is specifically tailored to help your loved one combat the signs and symptoms of memory loss.
Solutions Provided to Meet Your Needs
- Giving primary caregivers a break – families know they can count on us during vacations, business travel, when they winter in their vacation homes in warmer climates and can’t be close by, or when caregivers simply need some time for rest and rejuvenation. Just a short break from the everyday stresses of caregiving can make a world of difference, helping the caregiver recharge and return with renewed energy.
- Transitioning after a hospitalization or rehab stay – often insurance reimbursement constraints decide when seniors are discharged even when families and professionals feel they would benefit from further assistance and a secure environment with 24-hour awake staff. Seniors may have new medications following their stay, need further Physical and Occupational Therapy, or just people around to ensure their safety.
- "Testing" the experience of our communities – some individuals simply want to determine if our community is the right fit for them before making a commitment to moving. They like the "no strings attached" option of trying out this new senior living option – we have found that 95% of those that try us out in this fashion end up calling our community home!
If you need a two-week break or your loved one needs a two-month recovery – a respite stay could be your solution, let our community Director of Community Relations help you find that solution.
