Caring for a loved one can be overwhelming physically and emotionally. Allis Care Center in West Allis, Wisconsin offers 24-hour respite care from our highly trained staff of health care professionals.
The word respite means "break” or "interval.” This term has a double meaning depending on its referral. For the patient, respite care provides an interval of temporary care. For caregivers, they are receiving a much needed break from their everyday duties. It’s not uncommon for caregivers to become overly stressed and experience caregiver burnout, especially when caring for a family member. A break allows the caregiver to hit the refresh button and return to their duties with enthusiasm and renewed energy. Respite care at Allis Care Center is designed to provide family caregivers with time away from their responsibilities to relax, recharge and focus on their personal needs. You can schedule respite care for as little as one day, for a week or even longer if needed. Allis Care Center is happy to provide respite care on either a one-time or recurring basis. Respite care residents are able to reside with us after a hospital stay or medical procedure during their recuperation. Others may stay while their own caregiver is away or unable to provide the necessary care. You can rest assured that our professional caregivers will be on hand to see to all of your loved one’s needs.
Respite care can be provided in skilled and non-medical capacities. On its most basic level, respite care assists seniors with activities of daily living such as bathing, grooming, feeding and other everyday tasks. On the other end of the spectrum, respite care assists patients with memory loss and degenerative diseases, as well as providing rehabilitation for patients requiring physician-directed physical, occupational and speech therapies.
