Respite Care for the Elderly

Elmcroft Respite Care provides the most professional and compassionate care for seniors during short-term stays. Some seniors come to us after a hospital stay or injury makes it difficult to stay in their homes while they get better. Others come when their family caregivers go on vacation or travel for business. And for many, short-term respite stays are the perfect way to “try out” our communities.


What is Respite Care?

Elmcroft Respite Care provides short-term stay options in our communities for seniors who need assisted or personal care or who need memory care. We are the trusted source for caregivers who have senior loved ones depending on them and who need to turn over the caregiving on a temporary basis. We provide the home-away-from-home when the caregiver has events like vacation or out-of-town business travel, or when the senior has an illness or is discharged from the hospital and needs extra care beyond what you can provide.


Security Plus Peace of Mind

Elmcroft Respite Care provides a variety of care levels to meet the specific needs of seniors during short-term stays with us. Our respite care guests receive dependable comfort, care and service 24 hours a day, every day. And that help changes as each person’s needs change. All our guests receive the utmost in personal attention and caregivers gain peace of mind.


Compassionate Caregivers

Our staff are fully trained to help with all personal care needs day and night so our respite care guests can enjoy a comfortable, safe and happy stay. Those needs can include incontinence and medication management as well as dressing, bathing and eating. Sometimes that personal care means providing a listening ear or an encouraging word. And we’re there to help our guests engage in any of our fun daily activities.


But what really makes our staff unique is their heartfelt desire to lovingly care for our respite care guests and help them live as independently as possible. We are proud that many of our staff are longtime employees and our residents consider them family.


Comfortable and Welcoming Surroundings

Elmcroft communities take comfort to a new level.  Our living spaces – both indoor and out – are professionally designed to allow residents and guests to be safely involved in activities and to provide maximum comfort. Apartments and suites, which are laid out with privacy in mind to respect the dignity of our respite care guests, can be decorated with family mementos and cherished keepsakes. Tasty meals are prepared by a professional culinary staff, and restaurant-style table service by our courteous waitstaff is an important part of pleasant mealtime experiences. Plus, just like home, Elmcroft communities provide people and activities to engage with and a comfortable and welcoming place to be.


We take special care to make our guests feel at home, and that includes learning how they want to enjoy their stay with us. Some appreciate trying the activities, games and outings that are offered daily. Others prefer to keep to themselves and enjoy reading, puzzles or solo activities. Our guests get to spend their respite care stays with us on their terms, surrounded by loving and professionally trained caregivers.
