Discover What Senior Respite Care is All About

Aging is a natural part of life that we all go through due to our unique genetic makeup. While we can't avoid the aging process, it doesn't mean it has to be difficult or overwhelming. Just like when we were kids and faced challenges head-on, we can adapt and learn at every stage of our existence.

Accepting and embracing the changes that come with aging is key to living a successful and fulfilling life. This is where education, knowledge, and awareness of resources and programs in your community play a vital role. Now is the time to research and learn about the types of resources and programs within your community. One such program you may come across in your research is respite care, also known as a bridge program.

What exactly is respite care?

Respite care is a service specifically designed to provide temporary care and support to individuals who need it. Whether you've just had a hospital stay, are recovering from surgery, or simply need a short-term break, respite care can be a lifeline. It offers temporary relief and assistance for a period of 7 to 28 days, allowing you to regroup and regain your independence.

What levels of care does ProHealth Regency Senior Communities respite program offer?

At ProHealth Regency Senior Communities, we offer three levels of senior respite care within our Assisted Living community for individuals aged 62 and above. Our respite program includes everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay, from three delicious meals a day to housekeeping, personal care services, and engaging activities. Consider it a serviced hotel stay, tailored to your specific needs.

Who is respite care for?

Respite care is not only beneficial for the individual receiving care but also for their caregivers. It allows caregivers to take a well-deserved break and attend to their own personal needs. Furthermore, respite care can serve as a trial period for individuals considering a move to an assisted living community. You can experience all that our community has to offer without committing to a lease, making the decision-making process easier and more informed.

What is the best way to get started with respite care?

Choosing the right senior living community can be overwhelming, but with respite care, you can try out our services, meet your potential neighbors, and see if we are the right fit for you. We have had many individuals try our communities with respite and end up becoming permanent residents.

Don't hesitate to take the first step towards enriching your life and ensuring a positive future. Do your research, ask questions, and reach out to resources like your local Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) for support. We are here to help you navigate life's challenges and find the perfect community for you. Join us for a respite stay and discover a new home filled with joy and fulfillment. We can't wait to meet you and welcome you into our community. Good luck on your journey!
