Utilizing respite care can make a positive difference in both our guests’ and their caregivers’ lives.
Respite stays are a great option for those who need care 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.
Our memory care respite program is structured and research-based. We utilize a person-centered, wellness-based model of care that incorporates stimulating daily activities to sustain independence and promote a healthy spirit. The concept is to focus on maintaining a secure environment where residents have a sense of belonging and meaning each and every day.
Auguste’s Cottage is a self-contained center within our communities. We surround residents with artwork and special personal items from their past to help foster a sense of belonging and cultivate feelings of security. Plants adorn the halls and pets visit frequently. This protected environment fosters dignity and supports autonomy by reducing challenges.
Confident that their loved one is safe and in good hands, family members can enjoy productive time away. The ability to take a break allows caregivers to return to their caregiving role feeling refreshed.
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.
