Respite Care

at Ralston Creek Neighborhood

For a lot of caregivers, taking care of their mom and dad is a full-time job. The idea of going out of town for a weekend or an unexpected short-term change in care needs, like doctor’s orders after being discharged from the hospital, are serious stressors for caregivers who already feel worn thin. If you’re a caregiver who needs some extra help for a few weeks or days, respite care might be the perfect fit.

Respite care provides the peace of mind of on-site care staff, prepared meals, and enrichment opportunities, without the long-term commitment.

Private Apartments

Your loved one will have a private apartment in a homelike atmosphere. No up front entry-fee. The short stay respite care program has a daily rate plus care charges.

Why Respite Care?

Because you want your loved one to receive the quality care you have been providing, but you either have to travel or are otherwise unavailable for a short time.

Ralston Creek Neighborhood will provide the appropriate level of care in a private studio or one bedroom apartment with private bath, a personalized care plan, nutritious meals, activities and companionship.

In addition to solving a short-term problem, a respite stay gives caregivers a chance to reduce stress, restore energy and keep daily life responsibilities in balance.
