Respite Care Services in Mississauga

Respite care services are designed to help families temporarily manage the caregiving of their senior loved ones. There are many options available for families, including home care services, adult day programs, and short-term stays at a retirement community. At V!VA Retirement Communities, our respite care services can provide your loved one with assistance with medication administration and activities of daily living, as well as provide them with social and recreational activities to boost their quality of life and allow them to focus on recovery or rehabilitation if necessary. If you are considering respite care services in Mississauga, here are some important facts and benefits about choosing respite care at V!VA Mississauga.

What Is Senior Respite Care?

Caring for your loved one requires sacrifice and being your loved one’s primary caregiver can bring on a lot of stress and responsibility, especially when you must juggle caregiving and other personal responsibilities. Also, caring for a spouse or parent right after they have undergone a procedure in hospital can be even more daunting. Respite care provides caregivers with a temporary break from caregiving, so that they can rest up and recharge. Respite care also provides a safe and secure environment for loved ones to recover from medical procedures; many utilize respite stays to transition from hospitals to home. While it is important for family members to be there for their loved ones, everyone needs a break sometimes. Seeking the help of respite care services in Mississauga can actually help you be a better caregiver since it gives you the opportunity to take care of your own well-being too.

Whether your loved one requires full-time care due to an illness such as early stage dementia or temporary care as they recover from a surgery, retirement communities like V!VA Mississauga can provide them with 24/7 medical supervision, medication administration, assistance with daily activities, as well as bathing, dressing, and grooming. Our goal is to help you keep your life as normal as possible and avoid becoming overwhelmed.

Benefits of Respite Care

Promotes Recovery

If your loved one is recovering from an injury, respite care at a retirement community is the perfect place for them to heal and rehabilitate. Our Team Members take care of all the important aspects of their life, so they can focus on relaxing and healing.

Transition from Hospital to Home

There are many purposes for respite care services. They are also used to help people transition from the hospital to their home. They may normally be able to care for themselves, but after an injury, they may require special assistance and care as they recover. At V!VA Mississauga, our respite stays work as short-term residential opportunities for our Community Members to recover and transition back into their normal state of living.

Social & Recreational Activities

Perhaps one of the reasons that inspired you to take care of your loved one is that you understand their need for company and social involvement. At our retirement community, your loved ones will have plenty of company from other Community Members as they engage in conversation, share in experiences, and dine together. Our recreational activities also provide Members with the opportunity to stay active, even if they have some physical limitations. There are many different activities provided to suit the different levels of each person, even if it is as simple as daily walks around the building or in the garden.

Professional Healthcare

The onsite nurses and medical care staff are available 24/7 for any emergencies or urgent needs from our Community Members. If your loved one requires assistance with medication administration at certain times of the day, our Team Members will ensure that they are taken care of while you are away.

Give Caregivers Relief

Respite care helps maintain a healthy relationship between the caregiving family member and their senior loved one. Not only does respite care allow caregivers the opportunity to take care of their own health and keep their stress levels low, it also delays the need to place their loved ones in permanent placement at a retirement community. Respite care provides relief for caregivers and helps them balance their life.

Our trial stay options at V!VA Mississauga feature a private suite, with access to all the features and amenities of regular retirement community living such as housekeeping, laundry services, restaurant-quality chef-prepared meals, beautiful dining rooms and recreational areas, afternoon snacks and refreshments, community activities, and more.
