Want to take your family on vacation, but worried how Mom will fare while you are away? Want Dad to consider a retirement home, but he’s not sure he will be happy there? Here’s a solution to both concerns: Respite Care.
Many Providence communities offer respite rooms for short-term stays. When you schedule a respite stay for Mom, she will stay in a private room, be served three hot meals each day, get a chance to try out community activities, and receive personal attention from a compassionate staff.
The specifics vary from location to location, but in general you can expect:
- A private room, ready for a guest
- Nutritious, delicious meals
- Participation in a life-enriching social schedule
- Attention from friendly, professional housekeepers, dining room servers, and life enrichment staff (and CNAs or nurses, if healthcare is needed).
A few days of rest and respite might be just what you or your loved one needs — a vacation for the whole family. And if you are researching different care options, it’s a great way for Dad to take the community for a “test drive” before any decisions are made.
