Because caregiving can be a full-time and often exhausting role, The Eddy offers respite care, or short-term scheduled stays, where seniors who are normally cared for at home can be accepted temporarily at an enriched housing or assisted living residence, adult day center or skilled nursing center.
Respite care provides relief for caregivers, giving them time to tend to family or work obligations, or take that much needed vacation without worrying about the care of their loved one. As a result, caregivers often return with renewed energy and a fresh perspective that enables them to provide higher quality care for their loved one.
The Eddy offers several respite programs in a variety of settings:
Payment sources and options vary by the type and level of care.
For more information, or to schedule respite care, please contact the program location that best fits your needs, or call the Eddy InfoLine at (518) 274-3339.
