Vancouver Respite Care
For a lot of caregivers, taking care of their mom and dad is a full-time job. The idea of going out of town for a weekend or an unexpected short-term change in care needs, like doctor’s orders after being discharged from the hospital, are serious stressors for caregivers who already feel worn thin. If you’re a caregiver who needs some extra help for a few weeks or days, respite care might be the perfect fit.
Respite care provides the peace of mind of on-site care staff, prepared meals, and enrichment opportunities, without the long-term commitment.
Respite residents choose from studio or one-bedroom apartment floor plans that are minimally furnished. For additional comfort and flexibility, be sure to bring:
- Day Clothing
- Swimsuit, Exercise Clothing
- Slippers, Shoes
- Personal Items / Incontinent Supplies
- Toothbrush and paste
- Comb or brush
- Shaving equipment
- Shampoo/Conditioners and Soap
- Depends, Pads, Wipes
As an Assisted Living Community, we are required to have up-to-date records from the respite resident’s Primary Care Physician. Additionally, our Director of Nursing will need to complete an in-person assessment. Preparation for a respite stay can sometimes take up to a week, so some notice is required. Respite care availability may fluctuate. Please call for current availability. To find out more about our respite care services, contact us today or use the button below to schedule a tour.
