Occasionally respite care is a benefit for both the respite resident and the caregivers. For a few weeks or even a few months, residents can enjoy all of the extraordinary benefits of The Saybrook at Haddam, and their families and caregivers can enjoy a well-earned break.
Everyone needs a break at one time or another. Respite care provides caregivers a temporary rest from the demands of caregiving, and the person in need of care or supervision (whether the result of Alzheimer’s Disease or related disorder, or chronic physical disability or illness) receives supervision and care from our trained professional staff in The Saybrook at Haddam’s expertly designed and caring environment.
Taking advantage of respite care can enable a caregiver to be more effective. And a respite stay can open up enriching possibilities for residents.
Respite care services can be a win – win for caregivers and residents.
Caregivers, after a holiday, business trip or vacation can resume their responsibilities with renewed energy following a respite stay at The Saybrook at Haddam.
Residents will benefit from our culture of conviviality, close supervision from professional, trained staff and a well-designed environment with opportunities for exercise, rest and social engagement.
