Short Stay Respite Care

Short Stay Respite Care

We understand that being the primary caregiver for a loved one can be demanding, both mentally and physically. You want nothing more than to provide your parent or family member with the care, love and compassion they always showed you. However, if you’re not making sure your own needs are met, you may have a hard time being fully present for those you care for.  At some point, you may need some time away. Whether it is a couple of days or a couple of weeks, a respite stay is the perfect solution.

Our respite program is specifically designed to allow our Cottage Heroes to take over when family members are away, so a loved one’s needs can be met. A respite stay is also frequently suggested for seniors recovering from a recent hospital visit or health complication. No matter the reason for the stay, you’ll find that our respite stay program helps your loved one maintain their dignity in a simple and intimate, home-like atmosphere.

Features of the respite program include:

Professional, trained staff 24-hours a day

Private, well-appointed respite rooms

Friendly, home-like environment

Home-cooked meals

Resident care plan, developed based on      physician and caregiver input

Personal Needs

Residents receive care from specially trained staff according to their needs, which may increase with time.

Individual Attention

What may be most valued by memory care clients is individual attention. High levels of staffing are a priority at Prairie Senior Cottages.

Family Style Dining

There are therapeutic benefits when people sit down to eat together in a family setting. It is more personal and less overwhelming than a large dining room.

Four-Legged Friends

We also believe in the nurturing spirit of our four-legged friends. Residents may bring their own pets as deemed appropriate by Cottage Directors.
