It’s okay to need a break. Many adults are taking responsibility for their parents or other loved ones in their own middle and old age, pitching in their time and finances to ensure an enjoyable retirement for the people who gave so much for them. Thinking about your own health in that time isn’t selfish, and you should take advantage of services available to you to help manage it. Providing for a senior with care needs every day can make work, running errands, or even just relaxing difficult. Seeking help with caregiving is completely normal, and Angels Senior Living is pleased to offer all-inclusive respite care to seniors in the Tampa Bay Area. Seniors diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia are also welcome for respite care at many of our communities offering full-time memory care. Our memory care staff receive extra training to ensure the needs of our memory care seniors are met. Our respite care program gives caregivers a break and seniors a “short-term assisted living” experience before returning them to their home and normal routine of care. Seniors staying for respite care receive the same LEGENDARY CARE and services we provide to all our residents. This includes, but isn’t limited to:
- Assistance with activities of daily living
- Medication management (additional fees may apply)
- Access to meals and our all-day dining program
- Access to activities, social events, happy hours, and other special events
- Weekly laundry, housekeeping, and linen service
- Wi-Fi access
- A variety of exciting amenities like on-site beauty salons, movie theaters, and more depending on your location
But respite care isn’t limited to services at our facilities. We also offer private duty services, where certified home health aides (HHAs) can assist in providing care for your senior or loved one.
Our respite care program goes beyond what other assisted living organizations may offer. We can also meet many of the health care or recovery needs you or your loved one may have during your respite. We provide comprehensive therapy services in our Tampa facilities, including physical, speech, and occupational therapy. Therapy is also available in the home, and we manage home health agencies in Tampa and Clearwater to give our seniors full access to care at any stage of their health.
