Respite, or short-term care, usually means a stay of two weeks or less and is tailored to the needs of those with disabilities, or other special needs, such as recuperating from an injury, or managing chronic or terminal illnesses.
Respite Care is also an import tool for the family caregiver. It provides an opportunity to manage other business and conflicting needs, while your loved one is provided excellent care in a safe, constantly supervised environment.
Though many people may fear leaving their home and moving into a skilled nursing facility, many of our clients improve enough to return to independent living.
Skilled Care can include the following: providing medications and monitoring of vital signs and the effects of medications, administration of intravenous fluids, tube feeding, and wound care and dressing changes.
