Respite Care at Mattison Crossing at Manalapan Avenue
Our Short Term Stay & Transitional Care Program
For a lot of caregivers, taking care of their mom and dad is a full-time job. The idea of going out of town for a vacation or an unexpected short-term change in care needs, like doctor’s orders after being discharged from the hospital, are serious stressors for caregivers who already feel worn thin. If you’re a caregiver who needs some extra help for a few weeks or days, respite care might be the perfect fit.
Respite care provides the peace of mind of on-site care staff, prepared meals, and enrichment opportunities, without the long-term commitment. Mattison Crossing at Manalapan Avenue is proud to offer Respite Care, with a 30-day minimum..
You or your loved one are able to fully experience all the benefits of living at our community without a long-term commitment – all of the wonderful programs, making friends, companionship, security, meals, and personal care – while you have total peace of mind! Our Assisted Living community eliminates isolation, improves nutrition, and enhances overall well-being—especially helpful after a hospitalization; while our Rose Lane Memory Care community provides a calm, caring, secure environment, and the benefits of our innovative programming which is specifically tailored to help your loved one combat the signs and symptoms of memory loss.
Solutions Provided to Meet Your Needs
- Giving Primary Caregivers a Break – Families know they can count on us during vacations, business travel, when they winter in their vacation homes in warmer climates and can’t be close by, or when caregivers simply need some time for rest and rejuvenation. Just a short break from the everyday stresses of caregiving can make a world of difference, helping the caregiver recharge and return with renewed energy.
- Transitioning After a Hospitalization or Rehab Stay – Often insurance reimbursement constraints decide when seniors are discharged, even when families and professionals feel they would benefit from further assistance within a secure environment with 24-hour awake staff. Seniors may have new medications following their stay, need further Physical and Occupational Therapy, or just people around to ensure their safety.
- "Testing" the Experience of our Communities – Some individuals simply want to determine if our community is the right fit for them before making a commitment to moving. They like the "no strings attached" option of trying out this new senior living option—we have found that 95% of those that try us out in this fashion end up calling our community home!
If you need a two-week break, or your loved one needs a two-month recovery – a respite stay could be your solution, let our Director of Community Relations help you find that solution.
