Respite Care & Short Term Stays at the Lester Senior Living Community

JCHC offers respite care services and short term stays for seniors at our Lester assisted living campus in Morris County, NJ.

Respite stays offer caregivers or children of senior parents the opportunity to take a short break from the daily care of an elderly loved one. It’s also a perfect opportunity for your loved one to “try out” living in a senior community. Oftentimes, the idea of a “short term stay” is an easier bridge for your loved one to cross, when broaching the subject of moving to an assisted living facility. At Lester, family caregivers can be confident in the knowledge that your loved ones will be comfortable, entertained, and cared for both mentally and physically.

More About Our Respite Care Services In Morris County NJ

Here at JCHC, we know how difficult it is to balance caring for mom or dad into your day-to-day routine. It can be overwhelming and exhausting, especially if you are also working full-time and raising children. With that said, taking short breaks from time to time is not only necessary, but encouraged. Taking time to rest and recharge will do wonders for your mental health, and will also help put things into perspective when it comes to deciding on the best care options for your senior family member.

The Lester Senior Living Community offers short-term respite stays in our beautiful Weston Assisted Living building. These accommodations are for seniors who need some help with daily living tasks and could use a little more entertainment while the primary caregiver is taking a much-needed break. Our respite stays are available for anywhere from two weeks to two months, and provide a true home away from home. Our certified care team is available 24/7 to assist with daily tasks of living, medication management and to provide opportunities for socialization with other residents. We also offer state-recognized memory care services to respite guests in our separate memory care suite.
