Providing Respite Stays for Ohio Seniors
All caregivers need to recharge at some point. Let us care for your loved one while you’re away – or just taking time for yourself. Length of stay can be as long as you need, from a few days to a week or more.
All of our facilities welcome short-term residents, who can stay safe and comfortable with care from licensed nurses and other certified caregivers. In addition to helping with bathing, dressing, toileting and other activities of daily living, our staff provides the care necessary to ensure that you have peace of mind while you are away.
Quality Care For Your Loved One’s Respite Stay
Whether long or short-term, we treat all of our residents with the same level of care. While you take some time for yourself, you can truly relax with the peace of mind that your loved one is receiving the attention they need.
Some of the ways that we can assist your loved one include:
Skilled nursing care
Are you seeking a respite stay for someone who is recovering from a medical procedure, illness, or is living with a long-term health condition? Our team of skilled nurses will ensure that they receive professional care and attention and can provide customized care 24/7.
Specialized medical care, as needed
If your senior loved one has any specialized medical needs beyond basic care, our team of qualified nurses will accommodate them during their stay. Some categories of specialized care that we can provide include:
- Cardiology – heart failure, coronary artery disease, other heart and vascular conditions, etc.
- Nephrology – kidney failure, etc.
- Orthopedics – difficulties with physical mobility, strength, and pain management
- Pulmonology – COPD, cystic fibrosis, and other respiratory conditions
Three nutritious, appetizing meals each day
Each of the meals we serve across all of our locations are developed by our team of registered dieticians. Beyond tasting great, these dishes also provide a wealth of senior-focused nutritional benefits.
Housekeeping, personal laundry and linen services
While your loved one stays with us, they will receive regular housekeeping, laundry, and linen services. This ensures they can relax in the most clean and comfortable environment possible.
We provide seniors with a wealth of opportunities to interact with others and make new friendships. From outings to social gatherings, games, and educational programs, there is always something fun and engaging to do during their stay.
Pet, art, and music therapies
One service that Legacy Health provides at their respite care facilities throughout Ohio is pet therapy. Pets are a great source of comfort and can help to reduce stress for seniors. Many residents at our respite care facilities enjoy visits from therapy animals, such as dogs, cats, and rabbits.
Art therapy is designed to provide seniors with a creative outlet and help them to relax and enjoy themselves. Participants in the program get to explore their creativity through different mediums such as painting, drawing, sculpting, and more. The art therapist also provides guidance and support to participants as they work on their projects.
The benefits of music therapy are well-documented. It can help improve communication and bonding, stimulate the brain and improve cognitive function, ease pain and tension, and boost morale.
Does your care recipient hold faith-based beliefs? We will provide activities that are both enjoyable and respectful to what they believe in. Along with delicious meals and fun social engagements, we can offer opportunities to further engage spiritually.
