Collinwood’ short-term or respite care stays provide temporary care and housing in a furnished apartment in assisted living or memory care. We offer caregivers a safe place for their loved ones while they are away for business or vacation—or just need a break from the physical demands, stress and challenges of caregiving.
We offer personal care services, social activities and fitness programs to promote senior autonomy and quality of life. We focus on an active lifestyle, and our team serves as caregivers and advocates for seniors by providing an environment that allows our residents to thrive.
Respite care is ideal for individuals who want to try out our community without a long-term commitment—but who may want to transition to permanent assisted living. Our respite services are a great option for seniors recuperating from a recent hospital stay or illness who need temporary care from a qualified staff.
Our goal is to provide as much independence as possible while still maintaining a strong safety net and supervision to meet the needs and preferences of each resident. Assistance ranges from personal care, such as help with dressing and bathing, to medication management or arrangement of medical appointments.
In addition to physical care, our residents enjoy a great deal of social interaction. Whether it’s shared meals at our restaurant-style dining hall, games to keep their minds sharp or one of our many extracurricular activities, Collinwood residents maintain an active social life to nourish them body and soul.
