Minnetonka Area Respite Care for Seniors

Sholom, in cooperation with our community, supports adults in need across a wide continuum of care. We welcome everyone and offer a warm environment for those wishing to live out their remaining years. For over 100 years, Sholom has offered many adult services in the Minnetonka, St Louis Park, and St Paul areas. We also serve communities across the metro area.

Our services are designed for you or a loved one. One of the wellness programs we offer is respite care. If you are not familiar with respite care, it is temporary care provided to an adult with specific needs. It is done with the hopes that the individual will find a quicker path to recovery after an illness or surgery. It offers temporary relief to families who care for older adults.

What is Minnetonka Area Respite Care for Elderly?

According to AARP, there are 39.8 million family members who provided unpaid adult care in 2015. That number is even higher today. In their Caregiving in the U.S. report, AARP reports that over half of all caregivers noted a decline in their own health due to the added stress.

Caring for a senior loved one is a privilege and has many rewards. As time passes, however, that caregiving can become more of a burden as a family member declines physically or mentally. How do you keep it all together? With little breaks in between. With time for yourself and not worrying that your spouse or parent is not enjoying good care.

Caring for a loved one with a mild illness or helping them find their way back on their feet after surgery, generally has little long-term impact, if any. It is being responsible for a loved one with a severe illness or injury, someone who is newly come through major surgery, where caregivers need help. If you are feeling little support from family members or your own well-being is challenged, rest easy knowing your loved one and you will both benefit greatly from our Minnetonka area respite care services.

We Offer Top Quality Respite Care in the Minnetonka Area

Respite care, or short-term care, is a program put in place to help anyone who needs additional time and assistance to feel normal again, following surgery or an injury or illness. There are many reasons you may need our Minnetonka area senior respite care:

  • Additional time to regain your strength before returning home after surgery or a recent illness.
  • You might be seeking a “trial period” in making a long-term decision about your future home.
  • You live alone and no longer have the support of a spouse or other caregiver.
  • Following a hospital stay, you are unable to return home just yet and need a place to rehab.
  • Your caregiver may be planning a vacation or simply needs a break in order to recharge.

During your stay at Sholom, you will enjoy many amenities. You truly are our guest, and there is much to do each day in order to not just rebuild your strength, but also to relax and take it all in as well. Some rehabilitation sometimes takes longer than others, based on your own situation, and we stand ready to assist you with our Minnetonka area respite care services.

We never force anything on our clients as they seek to gain back their life as it was lived prior to an illness or injury.
