Respite Care

As part of our independent living program, the Residences at Chestnut Ridge can provide your loved one with short-term care.

After a fall or medical event, coming home from the hospital is much easier if there is a caring professional there to help in the recovery or rehabilitation process. Should your loved one require assistance or is unable to be effectively managed in a current home, the Residences at Chestnut Ridge offers resources to caregivers who find themselves out of their depth with the care of a family member. After a health episode, it is sometimes appropriate for individuals to come to a comfortable, home-like environment where they can receive enough help until they can go back on their own or with their families.

Respite care allows other family members to take care of themselves while the individual enjoys  safe, nurturing environment. The Residences at Chestnut Ridge’s on-site services, including physical and occupational therapy, are often of great value to individuals taking advantage of respite care services.

We can assist your family member with a variety of daily tasks, such as managing medications, or provide 24-hour care to aid in a quick recovery so that he or she can return to their home.

Short-term respite care has a wide range of benefits. Some of the many perks of short-term respite care at Chestnut Ridge include:

  • Fully furnished suites with full bath and emergency response system
  • Trained staff available 24 hours a day
  • Occupational and physical therapy programs that tailor to the individual
  • Assistance with daily needs such as bathing, dressing, personal hygiene and more
  • Three healthy, home-cooked meals per day, made from scratch with fresh ingredients

Being a primary caregiver can sometimes seem overwhelming. Taking care of yourself is just as important as taking care of your loved one, so never hesitate to seek out help or advice. We’re here to give you the resources necessary to help you provide the best possible care for yourself and your loved one, whether you’re investigating short-term or long-term care options. Some residents and families decide after their respite stay to stay long term. We are always open to having our respite residents stay with us and age in place.
