Respite Care

St. Ann offers respite care for caregivers seeking high-quality, short-term support for their loved ones.

We welcome guests for a variety of reasons and durations, whether it is for a long weekend or a couple of weeks. Our minimum stay is only three days, which is well below the requirements of most skilled nursing facilities.

Why Respite Care?

Respite care is a desirable option when caregivers need temporary relief, whether they are traveling for work, going on vacation, undergoing a medical procedure, seeking a break from the demands of life or simply looking for a chance to recharge their batteries. Respite care can also serve as a transition from an extended hospital stay to back home and is also a great way for families to see if St. Ann is the right long-term option for their loved ones.

Respite Care: Benefits for Residents

Guests receive individualized care in an engaging and secure living environment. We offer private rooms and a highly-trained staff of physicians, nurses and rehabilitation therapists dedicated to accommodating their needs.

When staying at St. Ann, you are a part of our family. You have access to all the same services and amenities as long-term care residents, no matter how long you stay.

If you or a loved one is exploring long-term care options, this is also a wonderful opportunity to try us out and discover whether St. Ann is the right fit before making a commitment.

Respite Care: Benefits for Caregivers

As the caregiver of a loved one, we understand the physical and emotional demands of your role. We are here to give you a break and allow you to feel secure knowing your loved one will be safe and cared for as you get caught up on the other aspects of your life.

Caregiving is physically and emotionally exhausting. Taking a break will help you refresh and maintain your mental, emotional and physical health, enabling you to continue providing quality care for your loved one at home.

Your safety, health and well-being form the foundation of high-quality healthcare at St. Ann.

We are proud of our resident and family satisfaction levels, which are both well above national averages. 100% of our residents would recommend St. Ann to others.

When you come through the doors of St. Ann, you not only enter a building that has proudly served the needs of thousands of residents over the past 60 years, you become part of a vibrant community.

Step into the lobby area and you’ll notice how quaint a community we are. As you walk down the front hall and pass the activity room and dining area, you will see there is always something to do – whether it’s residents taking in new hobbies, reading a new mystery book, listening to music or enjoying plenty of social time (and laughs) with each other.

All of our 54 resident rooms (mostly private) are spaced out across several wings, giving you the feeling of a neighborhood community. Rooms are personalized in a way that makes it feel like home. You’re welcome to bring almost anything, whether it’s your favorite pillow, photos of your family, your clothing, electronics, personal care items or even your own furniture. Your room comes equipped with Wi-Fi, phone and cable television, so you can continually stay connected with loved ones, the world around you or simply enjoy your favorite television program. Visitors are always welcome.

Our executive chef is always at the ready with various culinary options and flexible meal schedules. You can enjoy fresh food in our beautiful restaurant-style dining room or in the privacy of your own room. Guests are welcome to visit our gift shop for small food items, drinks and other accessories.

There is never a dull moment, either, for those who love to stay busy. Regular events include games, entertainment, movies, shopping trips and plenty of music. You can always balance that with downtime and rest as needed. The outdoor terrace is the perfect place to reflect or spend precious time with family.
