Respite Care Options
Commonly, caregivers are extremely hesitant to take time off or vacations away from the loved ones they are caring for. This is often due to a difficulty entrusting the care of your loved one to someone else or even an assisted living facility, even if it may be for a short period of time. It is common for caregivers to believe that another person may not provide the same level of care.
We’re here to help. At Beaver Lake Lodge, we understand your concerns. We aim to give you peace of mind with our respite care options. At our assisted living facility, we want to treat your loved ones like they’re our loved ones. We go above and beyond to provide a comfortable and safe environment for your senior. Our residents enjoy a family-oriented and social atmosphere, while still allowing them to maintain a sense of independence, despite being within the care of professional, kind hands.
Our respite care stays at our assisted living facility can be scheduled for one day, one week, or longer. We know that you may want to take a vacation, take care of immediate family, or have other matters you need to focus on. We want to help you take the stress out of your loved one’s care — even if it is for a short period of time.
How Respite Stays Work
A short term respite care stay can be an excellent option for any sort of caregiver who may want a vacation, time off, or time to focus on another matter. All of our residents, full time or short term, are welcomed into fully furnished apartments. We provide services to care for your loved one as long as necessary, including medication management, housekeeping, laundry, and even personal care or personal grooming. Your loved one will enjoy three freshly prepared meals daily, 24 hour on-call staff, and highly trained nursing professionals. Your loved ones participating in respite care will enjoy all of the same activities and amenities as a full-time assisted living resident.
Many of our respite care visitors enjoy the hotel-like stay of our assisted living facility. Seniors can enjoy the change of scenery, meet new friends, and have the opportunity to participate in new social activities.
While You’re Away
As a caregiver, we understand that you may want to check in with your loved one while you are away with a quick phone call or an email. We also take emergency contact information from you before you leave, as well as contact information from someone local to the facility in the off-chance of an urgent need.
While you’re gone, our respite care packages allow your loved one to forge new social connections and enjoy new activities. This can help time to pass while their loved caregivers are away. Even if you have a shy senior, you may be surprised at how quickly your loved one can begin to enjoy new friendships when placed in an environment around people at the same stage of life as they are. We organize new activities and entertainment to help your loved ones feel right at home, without being bored.
As an added bonus, booking a short term respite care stay at one of our facilities can help your loved one get used to a new “vacation” home, making it possible for you to take future vacations and time off in the future.
