Care Center - Respite Care
Skilled Nursing Facility
For families who need short-term assistance from their full-time caregiving responsibilities, our respite program at the Care Center is available for stays lasting from one week to one month for older adults who have advanced memory loss or other chronic health conditions.
Our highly qualified staff understands that some individuals may only need assistance with activities of daily living, while others may require 24-hour monitoring and supervision. Let us give you peace of mind while you take some necessary time for yourself.
Reservations for the respite program must be made in advance and are scheduled pending bed availability. Payment for this service is by private pay, long-term care insurance or State funds.
Village - Respite Stays
Assisted Living Facility
If you are the primary caregiver for a senior family member or friend who has Alzheimer's disease or some other form of memory loss, we invite you to take advantage of the respite services we provide at The Village at Waveny Care Center.
The Village at Waveny Care Center welcomes short-term guests for a long weekend or visits lasting for a month or more. You can trust your relative's care to us when he or she is not spending time with you. We are professional experts dedicated to caring for older adults with memory loss.
In addition to our highly qualified and compassionate staff, our award-winning assisted living facility is beautiful, safe and uniquely designed to provide therapeutic benefits for people with memory loss. Your loved one will feel secure and comfortable at The Village while having a great time.
Respite stays are also a wonderful way to "sample" assisted living and to smoothly transition to long-term residency, if desired.
Respite guests enjoy all amenities
- Everyone benefits from respite!
Available throughout the year, respite stays at The Village often enhance the ability of an individual to remain in the community longer by promoting rest for the caregiver and providing assessment and treatment, as indicated, for the respite individual.
Our respite guests also benefit from the opportunities they have to interact with their peers. The increased level and diversity of activities often helps to improve their appetite, sleep patterns and to stabilize mood and behavior. When reunited, both the caregiver and senior are refreshed and re-energized.
You are not alone! All caregivers need time for themselves - for personal rejuvenation, to spend time with family and friends, to travel out of town and, sometimes, to attend to an emergency or to recover from their own illness. Now, you can enjoy your much-needed personal time knowing your loved one is enjoying him/herself in a safe and nurturing environment.
