24/7 Registered Nurse and Care Available

A primary caregiver has many responsibilities to the senior they care for, but at times these responsibilities can become too much. Even when neither party wants to make the move to assisted living, breaks are important for maintaining mental health. Likewise, an injury or illness can increase a senior’s need for care beyond what that primary caregiver feels capable of providing.

When you need a little help, Chesapeake Manor’s respite care services can take the weight off your shoulders.

What Is Respite Care?

While most people think of assisted living as a permanent decision, this isn’t the case. With respite care, a senior can stay at an assisted living facility for a matter of days or weeks. In doing so, you can count on high-quality, short-term care without having to commit to an indefinite stay at a facility. If a senior’s support needs exceed what their primary caregiver is capable of, respite care is an ideal solution.

Reasons To Use Respite Care

There are many cases where you might want to consider respite care, ranging from giving a caregiver a break to dealing with rehabilitation.

Receive Constant Support After an Injury

While a primary caregiver might find it easy to keep up with a senior’s usual needs, hospital recovery can be much more taxing. When a senior temporarily needs a higher level of care, respite care is a suitable solution. At Chesapeake Manor, we have a doctor on call and are ready to meet the needs of any guest for as much time as needed.

Give a Primary Caregiver a Break

Everyone needs a vacation from time to time, but elderly individuals often need nonstop support. It’s not good for either party if the caregiver never has a few days or weeks off. With respite care, you can ensure that the cared-for person has a high standard of support during a caregiver’s downtime.

Take a Trial Run of an Assisted Living Facility

No one wants to send their loved one to an assisted living facility without being absolutely confident in its quality of services. If you’re thinking of making the move to permanent assisted living, respite care stays can go a long way in helping you find peace of mind. With a few weeks of residence, the guest will have a good idea of what the facility is like and will have had time to socialize and make friends.

By the end of the respite care stay, you’ll be able to make a more informed judgment about whether our facility is right for you.

Common Questions About Respite Care

Besides the reasons to use respite care, people often have a range of other questions about the service. Here are the answers to a few of the most common respite care questions.

How Long Can I Visit Respite Care?

The exact timeline for a respite care visit depends on your needs as well as the policy of the location you’re considering. At Chesapeake Manor, our respite care stays range from a minimum of 10 days to a maximum of 30 days.

How Frequently Can I Visit Respite Care?

You can check into respite care as frequently as suits you. If you have a chronic need for short-term care support, respite care can be a regular supplement. On the other hand, you can also use respite care as rarely as you wish. Some caregivers only use respite care to manage hospital recovery and rehabilitation, and this is a suitable use for the service as well.

Is Respite Care Expensive?

The cost of respite care depends on various factors, such as the length of the stay and level of care necessary. However, it does have the advantage that you usually don’t have to pay the check-in fee that most assisted living facilities charge. To find out more about the price of respite care and other details, you’ll want to reach out to the team at Chesapeake Manor.

Why Choose Chesapeake Manor?

Even during a short-term stay, it’s important to make the right choice regarding care for the elderly. When you entrust someone’s care to a facility, you need to be able to rest easily and know they’re in good hands. At Chesapeake Manor, we understand this and spare no effort to leave our respite care residents with an excellent impression.

Rich Community Living

At Chesapeake Manor, you can count on a lively, warm environment with plenty to do. Our community features amenities like:

  • A spacious, comfortable living area for residents to relax and socialize
  • Beautiful, curated outdoor walking spaces

Accident-Resistant Interiors

Chesapeake Manor was designed to accommodate residents with physical and cognitive needs. A simple slip in the bathroom can become a tragedy for an older person, and subtle things can contribute to falls. Something as seemingly small as an insecure rug or wet bathroom floor can lead to serious accidents, and we had this in mind when designing every room in the facility.

Each bedroom has secure, wall-to-wall carpet that minimizes the risk of tripping. In the bathrooms, you have strategically placed handbars to help with safe toileting and showering. Our residents can count on excellent, 24-hour care and support.

Excellent Health and Safety Measures

At Chesapeake Manor, we have around-the-clock caregivers available to support our residents’ needs. Our staff to resident ratio ensures each resident has access to care when needed. In addition, there is nursing and medical support available as well.
