What is respite care? Respite care differs from the services a typical senior living community provides. Programs involve short-term stays in a senior living community. At Rittenhouse Village At Lehigh Valley, we offer quality, compassionate, Respite Care for your loved one when you need it. These short-term stays might take place while a caregiver is away or otherwise unable to care for their loved one. In some cases, seniors may choose respite care while recovering from a surgery or other medical procedure, when they need extra care.
The Respite Care Program in Lehigh Valley
Taking advantage of respite care services for a loved one is often more important for a caregiver’s health and their ability to continue to provide care for their loved ones than they realize. At Rittenhouse Village At Lehigh Valley, we know that as a caregiver for a loved one, it can be difficult to take time off. You may feel guilty about needing to go out of town for a few days or about having other responsibilities to take care of. The reality is that taking time to rest and recharge can actually make you a better caregiver in the long run.
With our Respite Care program, we make it easy and worry-free for you. If your loved one needs extra assistance when recovering from illness or surgery, or you simply need a break from caregiving and some short-term support, we are here for you. Let our compassionate Respite Care team provide all the help you need. Respite Care residents have access to all of the resort-style amenities open to the rest of the Rittenhouse Village senior living community, including newly renovated rooms, exciting activities and events, delicious meals, personal care services and so much more. In addition to our senior Respite Care program, we offer Personal Care suites and apartments as well as a secure SHINE® Memory Care neighborhood.
