One of the most stressful aspects of providing care for a loved one is dealing with the need for occasional breaks in care. Whether those breaks are necessitated by the caregiver’s need for time off to recharge, help after a surgery or illness, or a trip out of town, the change in routine can be difficult to manage. Short term care is often a great option in these situations, especially when a caregiver doesn’t have a back-up or an unexpected need arises. A respite stay at a Senior Lifestyle community can provide peace of mind for family members, a change of scenery and social stimulation for a loved one, and a much-needed break for a primary caregiver.
Senior Lifestyle Short Term Care offers excellent solutions for a number of circumstances, whether planned or unexpected. Senior Lifestyle communities provide quality respite care for our guests, no matter the length of their stay. Short-term guests enjoy the same amenities as long-term residents, including delicious meals, activities, and a caring clinical staff that utilizes a Personalized Service Plan to see to each guest’s unique needs during their stay. A short term stay at a Senior Lifestyle community can also serve as a delightful introduction to the carefree lifestyle enjoyed by our residents for those considering a move to a senior community.
Short term care doesn’t have to be specifically for a respite stay; sometimes a short term visit to a Senior Lifestyle community can provide a guest with a sneak peek into the benefits of life at a senior community! The decision to move to a senior community can be difficult, even for those who feel ready to make a lifestyle change. Variables such as the location of the community, the level of care provided, and financial considerations will need to be factored in to a final decision on where to call home.
With over 30 years’ experience in senior living, Senior Lifestyle understands the factors that make a move successful and has developed the “Be Our Guest” program which allows a trial stay opportunity to “test drive” the lifestyle. Guests can join us for a few days’ visit before making a move to see if the lifestyle feels right to them, enjoying activities and events, dining with new friends, and meeting staff. The program truly allows guests to get a complete picture of life in a senior community and to see what daily life looks like for residents.
