We provide premium respite care, in a friendly, progressive environment designed to make our residents feel right at home.
Respite care offers families welcome support so often needed when caring for a loved one at home. It can allow a caregiver to enjoy a break or holiday. It can also provide the additional care needed during challenging times, such as when recuperating after an illness, operation or fall.
Temporary respite accommodation is offered in our residential and memory care rooms at both Ashmore and Merrimac, as well as in our secure memory care unit at Merrimac. These offerings are based on room availability.
Of utmost importance is the dignity and independence of our residents. Guests enjoy lots of choice about how they are cared for and supported, just like they would have if they were in their own home. Medication is given in the privacy of their room and the care team enable each resident to remain as independent as possible.
