Respite care is a convenient option offered at Wheatridge Park Care Center.
Respite (Vacation) Care Services
Designed to help caregivers that need help from time to time, Respite Care is a program for adults who require 24-hour care. This temporary care is provided for short-term intervals and a stay can last between 7 and 30 days. A Respite stay of less than 7 days may be available through the Southwest Kansas Area Agency on Aging. This service is funded by the Family Care Giver Program and offers an in-home caregiver a break from the rigors of the 24-hour care of their loved one. Residents who are admitted for a Respite stay are provided the same care and services as all other residents.
Perhaps you have an emergency that you need to attend to, or are planning a trip somewhere and need a safe and secure care option for your loved one. Knowing your loved one is receiving 24-hour care in a safe and secure environment can allow you peace of mind while you are away.
