While it’s natural for caregivers to allow their own needs to get pushed aside, it’s important for them to realize that they deserve a break from their responsibilities in order to properly care for themselves.
This is where senior respite care can make a difference in a caregiver’s life. Respite stays are an option for those who need respite care services for elderly friends or family on a short-term basis. This allows home caregivers the ability to travel, start a new job, recuperate from an illness, or pursue other interests. Many find respite stays are the perfect option for recovery from surgery or hospitalization.
Should a short stay require extended care, we can accommodate that, too. We carefully examine the needs of our respite guests and provide the level of care required to make their stay comfortable and enjoyable. Family members leave with the confidence that their loved one is safe and in good hands.
Hospice and palliative care for seniors is designed to provide comfort, care, and pain relief for those facing terminal illness. Hospice care involves a team approach to supporting patients and their families with expert medical care and pain management, along with meeting the spiritual and emotional needs of both the patient and the family.
Hospice and palliative care represent a compassionate approach to end-of-life care, assuring the best quality of life and allowing your loved ones to live as comfortably as possible. American Senior Communities partners with local hospice companies to offer comprehensive hospice services, including skilled nursing care, respite care, spiritual and bereavement counseling, medical equipment and supplies, social services, and pharmacy services. By assembling an interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, aides, volunteers, social workers and clergy, we are able to serve the special needs of hospice patients and their families.
