Here at Regency Retirement Village of Morristown our assisted living community offers a scope of care services outside of just the long-term housing many choose in later life. There are many cases in which seniors may find themselves in need of short-term stays or assistance as they recover from an injury, surgery, or illness, and we are more than happy to help. Whether you or your loved one needs care for a short period of time or you would just like to give a caregiver a break, our team is here for you.
If you’re looking for the right place for a short-term stay or respite care for seniors, consider making Regency Morristown your home away from home. Family members know that entrusting others with the care of a senior loved one can be difficult. After all, no one can love and care for our loved ones better than we can. That being said, our specialty trained team at Regency has all the skills necessary to provide the highest quality of care possible, tending to the needs of our seniors as if they were our own family.
What is Respite Care for Seniors?
We often forget that caregivers also have a life and responsibilities outside the realm of helping the people they’re charged with caring for. Respite care gives them that break as it transfers a primary caregiver’s responsibilities to another person, (most often a professional caregiver such as a nurse or aide) granting the everyday caregiver temporary relief from those duties. When the caregiver has a vacation planned or other life/family obligations take them from their caregiving duties, the seniors they care for still need that specialized care. For instance, oftentimes after surgery, an injury, or illness, seniors may need care that falls outside of the expertise of their family or regular caregivers. Our team is happy to help in these situations. Regardless of the reason, you can rest assured that you or your loved one’s short-term stay will leave them in caring, capable hands at Regency Morristown.
