Respite Care

Pine Lodge offers convenient short-term respite care services with all the personal benefits and amenities we provide our long-term residents.

You might consider short-term respite care when you need:

  • Extra assistance before returning home after a hospital stay
  • Continued short-term rehabilitation after a hip or knee replacement
  • A place to stay when an emergency has made your home unsafe or uninhabitable

A short-term respite care stay can also help you experience what Pine Lodge has to offer and see how you fit in with the residents who live there before you decide to become a full-time resident.

If you are a caregiver, you might also consider a respite stay when you need a break — whether it’s for work, a vacation, or just a much-needed breather — and you don’t want to leave a parent who is not fully independent.

We begin each stay with a detailed evaluation to create an individualized care plan.  Our care includes nursing observation, assistance with activities of daily living (like dressing and bathing), medication management, scheduled transportation and much more.

We offer flexible dining options, providing healthy menus created with oversight from a registered dietician, and serving three meals and day and snacks in our community dining rooms.

We provide a range of engaging activities that bring together residents and staff and contribute to our lively, stimulating atmosphere.  We are committed to creating an environment where all residents can thrive.  We define respite care as a stay of 14 days – 90 days — after that, prevailing rates and a move-in fee will apply.

Short-Term Stay & Urgent Placement

Following hospitalization for surgery or illness, a short term stay with us under the care of our trained team could provide the recovery and rehabilitation support needed to prevent complications and costly hospital readmission.

Our admissions process is designed to be quicker and easier than you might expect. When circumstances demand and safety allow, we can place residents into our community in a single day.
