Be our Respite Care Guest! For caregiver relief, The Village provides short-term respite care and welcomes overnight guests for stays as brief as a week.
If you are the primary caregiver for a senior with Alzheimer's disease, memory loss or some other form of dementia, we invite you to take advantage of the short-term overnight respite services we provide at The Village.
In addition to our highly qualified and compassionate staff, our award-winning assisted living residence is beautiful, secure and uniquely designed to provide therapeutic benefits for people with cognitive impairment. Your loved one will feel comfortable and fulfilled at The Village while making new friends and having a great time.
Respite stays are also a wonderful way to "sample" assisted living at Waveny, or to transition smoothly to long-term residency if desired.

A full day of social interaction and meaningful therapeutic recreation activities among friends in a nurturing, secure environment

Everyone Benefits from Respite
By promoting caregiver rest and rejuvenation, respite stays can enhance an individual's ability to stay at home in the long run.
Our respite guests benefit from social interaction and enjoy a diverse array of therapeutic programs. This increased level of activity can help to improve appetite and sleep patterns as well as stabilize mood and behavior. When reunited, both parties most often find themselves feeling 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 manage an emergency or recover from their own illness. Enjoy your much-needed personal time knowing your loved one is having a wonderful time in a safe and nurturing environment.
