Heartwood Senior Living does indeed offer respite care and for a variety of reasons.
Caregivers need down time – even if only occasionally – in order to recharge their batteries, keep in touch with others and to take care of themselves. This results in a healthier perspective and more positive interactions with the caregiver’s loved one. The only way to rest and recharge with peace of mind is by enabling the loved one to stay in a safe and loving environment during this time.
For the loved one with dementia, respite care provides a chance to spend time with others who are going through some of their same challenges, enjoy the comfort and security of Heartwood’s loving environment and take part in activities that are well suited for them and inclusive of others.
