Caring for a family member at home is an act of deep kindness and devotion. There are times, however, when unforeseen circumstances may arise. Caregivers may need to travel out of town. Or they may simply need time for self-care—time to rest and recharge the mind, body and spirit, so they can be at their best.
For these situations, all Wingate locations offer Respite Care. Depending on your loved one’s condition and care needs, you may choose Respite Care in either an Assisted Living or Skilled Nursing setting. A Respite stay at an Assisted Living location or Skilled Nursing location can vary in length – please contact a Wingate facility for specific details on their requirements.
Either choice provides residents with all the hallmarks of Wingate Healthcare. Look forward to welcoming hospitality, excellent clinical care, superb dining, a full range of modern services and stimulating activities and social programs—all in homelike surroundings created to nurture the soul as well as the body.
Consumed with their daily duties, home caregivers often unwittingly ignore the adverse health consequences of their commitment. Stress and sleep deprivation can lead to caregiver burnout, and cause persistent symptoms of depression, anxiety, irritability or anger. Respite Care at Wingate provides more than a break. Our staff offers comfort and support to caregivers, providing tools and strategies for sustainable wellness during a challenging time.
