Providing relief for caregivers and their loved ones
Mt. Carmel offers respite care for caregivers seeking high-quality, short-term support for their loved ones.
We welcome guests for a variety of reasons and durations, whether it’s for a long weekend or a couple of weeks. Our minimum stay is only three days, which is well below the requirements of most skilled nursing facilities.
Why Respite Care?
Respite care is a desirable option when caregivers need temporary relief, whether they are traveling for work, going on vacation, undergoing a medical procedure, seeking a break from the demands of life or simply looking for a chance to recharge their batteries. Respite care can also serve as a transition from an extended hospital stay back home and is also a great way for families to see if Mt. Carmel is the right long-term option for their loved ones.
Respite Care: Benefits for Residents
Guests receive individualized care in an engaging and secure living environment. We offer private rooms and a highly trained staff of physicians, nurses and rehabilitation therapists dedicated to accommodating to their needs.
When staying at Mt. Carmel, you are a part of our family. We provide not only the best care but also a vibrant and highly social community that offers you a chance to stay in a more social surrounding. You have access to all the same services and amenities as long-term care residents, no matter how long you stay.
If you or a loved one is exploring long-term care options, this is a wonderful opportunity to try us out and discover whether Mt. Carmel is the right fit before making a commitment.
Respite Care: Benefits for Caregivers
As the caregiver of a loved one, we understand the physical and emotional demands of your role. We are here to give you a break and allow you to feel secure knowing your loved one will be safe and cared for as you get caught up on the other aspects of your life.
Caregiving is physically and emotionally exhausting. Taking a break will help you refresh and maintain your mental, emotional and physical health, enabling you to continue providing quality care for your loved one at home.
