Respite Care for Seniors

Respite care for seniors and people recuperating from medical interventions is an ever-expanding issue in America. Respite care denotes temporary care provided to an adult who, for some reason, needs time to recuperate away from home. There are many situations in which individuals may find themselves in need of respite care services, and Sholom can help with all of them.

Health Issues

Whether it is chronic health issues common amongst seniors or the disabled, or acute health issues such as those arising from surgery, respite is an essential part of the recovery process. This medically prescribed respite, however, needs to follow certain conditions to avoid recurrence of the health problems.

This is why medical respite care tends to be more specialized than respite care for the elderly, and it necessitates a greater participation of healthcare professionals to ensure that the patients recover properly. Patients may need particular diets, have their bandages changed regularly, take medications or might be bed-ridden and in need of extra help while recovering.

Emergency Respite Care for Seniors

Some clients may need respite care due to an emergency, for example, a senior whose care provider is temporarily unable to care for someone due to a personal emergency. The idea when providing senior respite care is ensuring a homey and comforting environment for the guests so that they can feel secure and reassured while awaiting their return home.

That is why respite care services are essential to our work at Sholom. We specialize in every type of assisted living situation including, of course, respite care in all its variations including senior respite care.

Allow Us to Relieve the Burden

As previously stated, a main issue when it comes to providing respite care for the elderly is that seniors tend to be overwhelmed by being taken away from their familiar environment and habits. We are experienced at working with seniors and their potential disabilities. Our respite care is comprehensive without being intrusive or too different from their home environment. We provide comfort as well as the prerequisite social stimulation necessary to ensure our elderly guest feel like they have found a home away from home.

We strive to adapt our services to the client rather than impose a rigid fixed structure, which will help acclimatize a guest to the changes that they were previously not comfortable with. Our goal is to help recreate all the comforts of home while removing the chores and difficulties.

At Sholom, we offer a full respite care package geared towards people of all ages and needs. Our respite care services ensure that clients only concentrate on feeling better, while we take care of factors that may affect recovery.

We provide our clients with fully furnished apartments studied to maximize both comfort and leisure. Our cuisine is also geared towards taste, as well as ensuring a speedy recovery; we provide three healthy and tasty kosher meals a day.

All other essential services are, of course, taken into account when it comes to our respite care services. We do housekeeping, laundry, and linen service.

Ensuring that our clients recuperate is our main concern, which is why we also provide guests with healthcare services. We provide medication management as well as a diverse array of reeducation therapies such as physical, occupational, and speech therapy
