Respite Care (Short-Term Stays) in St. Louis County
Caring for a family member in the home can be a rewarding experience, but it also can be overwhelming. Respite care provides temporary relief for those who care for adult loved ones with disabilities, chronic and debilitating illnesses or age-related diseases.
Garden View Care Center at Dougherty Ferry provides respite care for families who need short-term breaks to relieve stress, restore energy and promote balance. Respite care is the ideal solution for families who need to travel out of town for business or simply want to take a vacation.
Those accepted for a short-term, respite care become temporary residents at Garden View. They live in the comfort of their own rooms and receive the full benefits of skilled nursing care. We offer assistance with medications, daily tasks and rehab.
As they are able, respite care residents can take part in activities such as exercise classes, Bingo games, live music performances and movie matinees. They will enjoy outstanding meals served in their rooms or in our elegant dining room. They may also join other residents on day trips to attractions in the greater St. Louis area.
You can enjoy peace of mind and a well-deserved break knowing that your loved one is well taken care of at Garden View Care Center at Dougherty Ferry.
