Looking for short-term placement of a loved one? Our respite program is a convenient option for caregivers in need of a short break from their duties. Whether you need to recharge or go away for business for a few days or a few weeks, you are assured the peace of mind knowing that your loved one will be well taken care of. Respite care is also an opportunity for your loved one to experience Morristown Post-Acute prior to making a permanent residence commitment.
Our short-term residents enjoy our myriad amenities and services, as well as the same level of attentive care that we provide to our long-term residents. That includes:
• Delicious Meals
• Engaging Activities
• Physician Consults
• Skilled Nursing Care
• Medication Management
• Personal Care Assistance
We understand how you may feel about respite care. Those who take pride in caring for their family members at home are often worried about what asking for help or what sending their loved one to a center means. It doesn’t mean that your loved one is a burden or that you can no longer care for them adequately. Everyone needs a break from any type of caregiving!
The result of getting a temporary caregiving break is that you’ll return refreshed and happy, which is critical because the first step of being a caregiver is maintaining a level of self-care.
In fact, you may be surprised at the affect that respite care has on both you and your loved one. For you, a break can feel very restorative. You will return to your caretaking duties with new energy and attitude, just as you might return to your work after a vacation. And, for your loved one, a new environment can be highly engaging. They can explore new things, try new foods, and make new social connections, all of which is highly rewarding. You can feel assured that your loved one is in a safe and attentive environment, receiving the same quality of care you provide at home.
Respite care many be temporary, but the positive effects can last a long time. Reach out to us to discuss your concerns about respite care and what kind of support your loved one will receive while they are with us.
