At Heritage at Framingham, we know that you take pride in providing for your aging family member. It’s rewarding to care for those who once cared for us, and serving them in their advanced age can be a blessing. However, we also understand that everyone needs a break, and it’s important to take care of yourself, too. That’s why we offer exceptional respite care for those in need of temporary assistance for their loved one.
What Is Respite Care?
Respite care is a service that provides temporary relief to a caregiver while your loved one receives the care and attention they need in a safe environment. Family members may place their loved ones in respite care for many reasons, including travel, emergencies, or as a trial period before choosing Heritage at Framingham as their loved one’s full-time residency. By experiencing it for a week or two, aging adults and their families can learn more about what we offer and if we’re a good fit for you. Seeking respite care is in no way an implication that you do not love your family member or that you see them as a burden. It’s quite the opposite; it’s important to maintain your health to be able to take care of others, and seeking assistance when you’re unable to fully commit to your loved one’s care is a smart and responsible decision.
Why Should I Choose Heritage at Framingham?
