Now more than ever, we could all use a break! Short-term respite care at The Laurels of Defiance can be beneficial both for guests and their family or caregivers, allowing all parties a brief reprieve to relax, recharge and recuperate.
For a family or caregiver providing care for a senior or individual with unique medical needs, 24- hour skilled nursing care at The Laurels of Defiance provides short pause from the demands of around-the-clock care.
For prospective guests, a respite stay is often the perfect transition between a hospital stay and home. Our team will develop a plan based on the needs of the guest and make their stay productive and comfortable. Respite guests choose which types of activities they wish to participate in, determine how much or how little they wish to socialize with other guests, and enjoy the selective dining menu available at our facility. In addition, we ensure all medications are taken on time and that any necessary medical treatments are provided.
