Our scheduled short-term respite care will be offered as an addition to our current long-term skilled nursing care and short-term rehabilitation programs.
Respite is often referred to as a gift of time because it provides relief to the caregivers and quality care to the patients. At Clove Lakes, we recognize that caregivers need to make time for themselves in order to relieve stress and prevent burnout. Caregivers are then able to return to their daily routine with a renewed vigor to continue to care for their loved ones at home.
Clove Lakes responded to the inquiries in the community for this service by designing two comfortable respite suites that will provide 24-hour care to applicants seeking a limited stay in our facility. Respite care will be offered on a weekly basis but cannot exceed 42 days in a calendar year.
Applicants must be 16 years of age or older and are required to provide a full medical history together with a physician's order for the scheduled short-term stay.
A full comprehensive medical assessment will be performed by the Clove Lakes staff on all patients admitted to the program.
For an additional charge the following services are available:
Families are encouraged to make reservations at least two months in advance.
