Respite Care is an innovative offering for residents who only want to join our community temporarily. We understand that making a move to community living can be a big step, so we have the option to try us out for any amount of time over 30 days!
You may want to try our Respite Care program for various reasons. If you need a safe place to recover from an injury or illness, your regular caregiver needs a break, or you want to try us out before you commit, you’re always welcome.
Even if you join us for a short amount of time, you will have complete access to everything our full-time members enjoy. You’ll get a fully-furnished apartment-style suite, 3 nutritious home-style meals a day, and 24/7 available care for your entire stay.
Individuals may need temporary full-time support for a variety of reasons. So we have developed our Respite Care program to support those who need it for any length of stay over 30 days.
Typically, people join our Respite Care program for a 1 of 3 reasons:
Coverage for Your Regular Caregiver
If you have someone who usually cares for you full-time and they’ve suddenly become unavailable, we can help. If your caregiver needs to take an unexpected trip or has fallen ill, we’re here to support you.
Our Respite Care program was designed to meet all of your needs to stay relaxed and comfortable. You can also use our temporary care to alleviate caregiver burnout and ensure your regular caregiver gets the rest they need to continue to meet your needs.
Support During Recovery or Rehabilitation
Recovering from an illness or injury can be challenging on your own, but it doesn’t have to be. Our Respite Care program allows you to access the support you need while you recover.
Our compassionate staff works hard to ensure you have everything you need for a restful and speedy recovery. We’ll be sure to help with any daily activities to alleviate any stress or difficulty, like getting dressed, dining, or using the restroom.
Sample Our Community Living
Making the switch from living independently to joining a community living space can be stressful. We want it to feel comfortable and natural, so we offer the option to spend some time with us to try out all we have to offer at Wareham.
If you decide to stay with us for a length of time over 2 weeks, there is absolutely no obligation for you to come back. Our primary goal is to give you the chance to try out our services and amenities to make sure it’s exactly what you need. Many of our temporary residents end up coming back to join us permanently because they enjoyed their stay so much.
