The Benefits of Retreat and Day Stays
The term “caregiving” often brings to mind living in a senior community. However, caregiving is actually a flexible senior care option that can be sought for a matter of weeks, days, or even hours on an as-needed basis. If your family contains a senior loved one in need of temporary care—or if you, as a caregiver, need a brief respite—then retreat and day stays at Bickford Senior Living could be exactly the type of caregiving your loved one needs.
Retreat and Day Stays ExplainedRetreat and day stays are temporary caregiving options that provide care on a short-term basis. Day stays may include care at a senior living community from sunrise to sundown or for only a few hours during the day. Retreat stays provide care for a few days or weeks, but are ultimately temporary caregiving situations as well. During a day or retreat stay, your loved one will be privy to as much or as little care and companionship as needed. Whether your loved one is fully independent and would simply like to enjoy the benefits of a senior community or requires medical assistance or memory care, every aspect of his care will be addressed during his day or retreat stay.
Benefits of Day StaysDay stays offer an ideal solution for family caregivers with busy schedules. Whether you simply need a few hours to yourself or have work or personal business you must attend to, your senior loved one can enjoy care and companionship for as few or as many hours as necessary. A day stay ensures your loved one will continue to receive nutritious meals, medication management, and any other special needs while you are busy. A day stay can also provide your senior loved one with an enriching opportunity to make and maintain new friendships and enjoy senior activities outside of his own home.
Benefits of Retreat StaysRetreat stays are meant to provide longer-term care than day stays. A retreat stay may last several days or up to a few weeks, depending upon your needs. Retreat stays can be the ideal solution if your loved one has undergone recent surgery or other significant medical treatment. While your loved one’s home may not be equipped for a safe recovery, a retreat stay in a senior living community provides the round-the-clock care and companionship necessary for a fast and healthy recovery. Alternatively, retreat stays can be ideal when family caregivers need a longer break. Perhaps you have business or a family vacation you’d like to attend, but are concerned about leaving your senior loved one at home. A retreat stay in a senior living community provides both you and your loved one with peace of mind while you are away.
