Respite Care

The Cottage offers both permanent and temporary Respite Care services. Respite Care is for individuals who only require a short stay to get stronger after a surgery, set back or when a caregiver is unable to provide the needed support. The Cottage offers two programs, Home Away and Getting You Back Home, and can customize your stay to meet the specific, individual needs of seniors and their caregivers.

                                                         Home Away

Woman and Daughter 2

Our Home Away respite program is designed to give caregivers a temporary break while travelling or attending to other needs. Your loved one will be in the best of hands and getting the best of care at the Cottage for as long or as short a time as needed.

Central to the Cottage’s mission is CareSteps, the customized personal care program that provides just the right kind of help at the right time. Along with this individualized care program, Cottage respite services include:

  • 24-hour staff attention
  • Three home-style meals daily
  • Planned on- and off-site recreation
  • Weekly thorough housekeeping and daily tidy up
  • Personal laundry

Your loved one’s stay will include a private apartment and private bathroom, fully equipped with the following features:

  • Beautiful, residential furnishings
  • Linens & toiletries
  • Emergency alert system
  • Cable TV

Getting You Back Home

Our Getting You Back Home respite program is meant for seniors who need a place to recuperate after a hospital or rehab stay but aren't well enough to go back to their home just yet. This program gives your loved one the extra time and attention needed after a recent surgery or set back, to regain strength and confidence, with the personalized care and therapy needed for recovery.

Research shows that full recovery from surgery, stroke or other serious elder health problem continues longer than the 20 days covered by Medicare. That’s why the Cottage, the assisted living residence that specializes in helping people stay independent, has been so successful in helping residents get back strength, confidence, and ability quicker and more effectively than anyone who goes straight home.

As a respite resident at the Cottage, you work with the best therapists in the area in the privacy of your own cozy apartment during your Cottage stay. You also have the 24-hour support of our caring staff, who encourage and support you on your way back to the high functional level that you will need to take care of the day-to-day tasks at home. In addition, because the Cottage is home to other independent-minded folks like you, you are surrounded by joy laughter and high spirited residents – which we believe makes a difference in one’s recovery.

Along with an individualized CareSteps plan, the Cottage respite services include:

  • Home health agencies that provide therapies (such as physical, occupational, and speech) that are approved by and billed to Medicare
  • Nurse supervised care management
  • 24-hour staff attention
  • Three home-style meals daily
  • Planned on- and off-site recreation
  • Weekly, thorough cleaning and daily tidy up
  • Personal laundry
  • Transportation to therapies & doctors

Your stay will include a private apartment and private bathroom, fully equipped with the following features:

  • Beautiful, residential furnishings
  • Linens & toiletries
  • Emergency alert system
  • Cable TV
