What Is Respite Care? It’s a Short-Term Stay With Long-Term Happiness.

The Avalon of Lewis Center is a wonderful place to live – even if it’s just for a short while. Respite care, or short-term care, offers a perfect solution for those caring for an aging loved one who may be going on vacation or who may simply need to refresh and re-energize from the daily rigors of caregiving. Respite stays are also a great option for anyone who could benefit from more recovery or relaxation time after surgery or other medical procedures.

Respite residents have access to the same amenities, support, services, and life-enrichment as all The Avalon residents while benefitting from a relaxing, comfortable, homelike environment and around-the-clock care.

The Benefits of Respite Are Many.

For caregivers, respite stays can prevent exhaustion and caregiver burn out. For residents, respite can be a welcome change of routine, complete with access to a wide variety of stimulating activities, exciting entertainment, and plenty of opportunities for socialization. And it’s all provided in a caring, nurturing environment with 24/7 support.

Frequently Asked Questions

You’ve got questions about respite care. We’ve got answers. Anything we don’t cover, call us at (740) 513-2270.

When should respite care be used?

Many family caregivers use respite care when going on vacation. Others use it to further recover from surgery or hospitalization before returning home.

How often?

Respite care can be as frequent or as infrequent as you prefer.

How long?

Respite stays can last for a few hours, a few days or a few weeks.

In-home vs out-of-home respite care?

In-home respite care is convenient because the professional comes to the house, learns the home and becomes familiar with the family routine. But, for those who need complicated medical assistance it might be better to look at a temporary respite care option outside of the home, where they may be better equipped to manage health or emergency issues.

What services are included in respite care?

The services available to full-time community residents are available to respite guests: 24/7 support with personal care, like bathing or medication management, activities, specialized memory care if needed, meals and more.

Is respite care covered by insurance?

Medicare will not cover respite care unless the respite services involve hospice care. Long-term care insurance may be used as a supplemental insurance to help pay for respite care.
