Respite Care Services
Short-Term Stays at The Meadows
Silver Maples offers short-term respite care services at The Meadows, our assisted living residence. Respite care is a great option for individuals who need some day-to-day support and seek the social engagement and activities a retirement community has to offer.
Who Respite Care is Designed For
As rewarding as caregiving is, it can also be emotionally and physically challenging. Sometimes, you just need a break. Or maybe you have work obligations, a vacation coming up, or other daily responsibilities that make it difficult to provide the care your loved one needs. We’re here to help provide short term support through our respite care services.
At Silver Maples, a short-term respite stay can range from a week to several months and are ideal for:
- Primary caregivers who are traveling or need a break
- Families who would like to try the community for a future move
- Individuals after a recent hospitalization or stay in a rehabilitation facility
