Respite Care / Convalescent Care / Short Term Care / Winter Stay In a Retirement Home Setting.
Respite Care and Convalescent Care are often used as a temporary solution for individuals needing to recuperate from surgery. A short term stay is available to seniors who are interested in trying out a retirement home to see if it is the right fit for their new home. As well, all of these stays are used interchangeably depending on care requirements needed, to offer a caregiver a break and to avoid caregiver burnout. These stays range from 2 weeks to 2 months approximately.
Winter Stay’s are a great idea to avoid isolation and heightened risk in the winter months. Seniors often can’t get out and around as easily and need some assistance with meals and activities. During a winter stay, the retirement homes can also provide care as needed. These stays range from 2 months to 4 months approximately.
