With the impending arrival of Hurricane Ian in Florida, we would like you to know that it is our goal to shelter in place unless ordered to evacuate by authorities. Families will be notified by each community regarding specific plans should evacuation occur. Our communities are equipped with large generators and sufficient fuel supplies in the event of loss of power. Our company philosophy is that residents will be better served, safer, and less anxious if they are able to stay at our communities in familiar surroundings with staff available to see them through the storm. Residents may also want to stay with family members and if this is the case, please arrange with the on-site team at their community. Please feel free to speak with the Executive Director or any of the Senior leadership at the community if you have questions. Best regards and stay safe. We will update after the storm has passed.
As a caregiver, the daily routine of caring for a loved one with dementia can be a full-time job and can bring stress to daily life. As a senior, the day to day tasks of meal preparation, cleaning and transportation can quickly become daunting. Short-term respite care can help.
What some seniors and caregivers may not realize is that short-term (or respite) stay options are available at most senior communities. As a caretaker it can be difficult to find time for your own physical and emotional needs; however, your wellbeing is just as important as your loved one.
Most senior communities offer overnight respite care for days, weeks or months. Respite suites typically provide the same amenities and activities to an individual as if they were living at the community full time.
Regardless of the reason, it's best to involve both the senior and the caregiver when choosing which senior community is best for a respite stay. Understanding what options are available for you or your loved one can be the key to creating a plan that works.
Deciding on a senior living community is a journey filled with many questions. We are here to provide you and your family with the answers you need before finding the community that fits your lifestyle.
The sheer number of senior living options can be overwhelming for older adults and their children. It's important to know the facts about each one in order to determine which is the best fit for you or a senior loved one.
