Taking advantage of respite care services for a loved one can be equally as important for the caregiver as it is for the loved one. A caregiver’s health and their ability to continue to provide care for their loved ones long-term is essential. At Rittenhouse Village At Muhlenberg, we know that as a caregiver for a loved one, it can be difficult to take that much-needed 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. Plus if your loved one is recovering from a procedure or surgery and requires rehab services, you’ll want peace of mind that they are getting the best care possible.

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 Muhlenberg, 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.

With our Respite Care program, we make it easy and worry-free for you. Let our compassionate Respite Care team provide 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 exciting activities and events, delicious meals, personal care services and so much more.

Our Respite Care Amenities

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. Getting respite care for a loved one is important for a caregiver’s long-term health as well as the long-term health of their loved ones. Plus, caregiving can be a full-time job! However, our senior Respite Care offers you a chance to come back to caring for your loved one with renewed energy. With the help of the dedicated team members at Rittenhouse Village, you’ll have peace of mind while away. If you have questions, we are happy to offer a free assessment and walk you through all of our services and respite policy guidelines…just ask!
