3 Features of Great Respite Care in AZ

When you or a loved one needs respite care in AZ, you will want to be sure you choose the best option possible.

When you or a loved one needs respite care in AZ, you will want to be sure you choose the best option possible. You may need to use this care option if you or your loved one is recovering from an injury or illness or if a usual caretaker is away. Respite care should ideally give both those in need of care and their caregivers a much-needed period of rest and relaxation, usually lasting a few weeks. And in some cases, it can be a test run before entering an assisted living community full-time.

In order to make sure the respite care in AZ you choose will be as beneficial as it can be, read on to find out what features you should be looking for.

1. Qualified and Attentive Staff

It will give you peace of mind to know the staff of a respite care center in AZ is licensed and accredited. Also, make sure the center has a good reputation when it comes to the quality of care provided. At Solterra, we work to deliver the same high standards of care for respite patients as we do for full-time residents. Our staff isn’t just qualified but friendly and considerate as well.

2. Lovely, Welcoming, and Active Community Environment

Solterra aims to make patients feel better with wonderful amenities and social activities. The scheduled activities and special social events are one way we go above and beyond to keep residents happy and engaged. And, yes, respite patients are offered the same amenities as full-time residents.

We ensure every resident gets three meals a day. And our chef-prepared menu is both delicious and healthy. There’s plenty of variety, not just the same food every day. There are even special food events that could be happening during a respite care stay. And residents can eat in the dining hall for more social interaction.

These features of our respite care in AZ keep people healthy in both body and spirit. Each of our communities has beautiful surroundings for peace and tranquility. Enjoying the beautiful sun and nature of Arizona will lift spirits. We can also reassure you that our communities are safe.

3. Cost

In case insurance doesn’t cover the stay, there should be additional financial assistance options. You shouldn’t have to avoid getting the care you need just because you’re afraid it isn’t affordable. You can contact the individual Solterra communities to find out what your options might be. One option that could help is Elderlife Financial Solutions, which is a loan. Veteran’s benefits are also available for those who qualify.

You can find more information about each of our Solterra respite care communities in AZ on our website. We also have tour request forms available on this website, as we understand you’d most likely want to see our communities in-person before making a decision.
