We provide short term, professional care for your family member or friend when you cannot because
...You need a well-deserved break
...You have some new obligations for a while
...You are taking a vacation

During the Respite stay, your family member or friend will receive 24 hour nursing care, medications, a prescribed diet, an attractive room with cablevision/VCR, and activities to enjoy in a safe, clean, welcoming environment.
The Goal of scheduled short-term care is to provide relief for the caregiver(s) while providing nursing home care for the individual.

An assessment of each new applicant shall be completed prior to admission in order to establish baseline information about the individual and to establish a plan of care, which meets his or her needs for nursing home services. A history and physical examination shall be completed for each potential scheduled short-term care resident before admission. Prior to admission, a discharge plan shall be developed with the prospective resident and caregiver.
