One of the most difficult aspects of providing care for a loved one is dealing with the need for occasional breaks in care. Whether those breaks are dictated 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 troublesome 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 situation 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 meet each guest’s unique needs. 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 community feels right to them, enjoying activities and events, dining with new friends, and meeting our team. 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.
