Giving Caregivers A Much-Deserved Break

Respite care conveniently tailored to meet the short-term needs of individuals and caregivers

Richfield’s Vacation & Recovery Stay Program, a temporary senior care option, offers convenience and flexibility, allowing caregivers time to vacation, deal with personal or business affairs, travel or enjoy needed rest from the stress and strain of round-the-clock caregiving.

Based on room availability, respite care stays are available in our assisted living residences, The Oaks, and the Joseph C. Thomas Center. For stays lasting longer than 30 days, prevailing rates will apply.

Individuals seeking respite care are evaluated by the Richfield care team to determine individual care needs and complete the necessary paperwork prior to admission. If the individual is recovering from subacute or short-term rehabilitation, he or she must no longer be eligible for Medicare Part A-related benefits.

Temporary guests have their own private or semi-private room. Each room is attractively furnished and includes a private bath. Housekeeping, linens and dining services are provided. Three delicious meals are served and snacks and beverages are always available upon request. Our assisted living residences provide a supportive environment where team members are available round-the-clock, medications are administered, and assistance with personal care is provided.

The Vacation and Recovery Respite Stay Program is an affordably priced private pay option for short-term elderly care. This means that Medicare does not cover room and board expenses. We suggest you consult your insurance company, as some private insurance plans cover room and board expenses for assisted living. In addition, Medicare Part B or other private insurance may cover some optional services such as physical, occupational or speech therapy.

Our vacation and recovery stay programs are ideal for:

  • Family members who need to take a break from their caregiver duties
  • Patients who have completed a hospital stay or rehabilitation, but who would benefit from an added care
  • Those who have undergone same day surgery or other outpatient procedures and want a day or two of rest before resuming their daily routines
  • Prospective residents and their families who would like to evaluate the benefits of Richfield Living before making a permanent move.

Individuals are to check-in for his/her stay Monday through Friday, prior to 3 p.m. To discuss options please contact our admission counselors at 540.380.6523. Temporary senior care stays are also available in our Assisted Living, for those requiring 24-hour nursing care. For more information on our respite care options, call 540-380-6523 .
