Respite Care

When you are responsible for 24/7 medical care of a loved one, it can be physically, emotionally, and mentally challenging. Respite care is needed in situations where an alternative caregiver is required to fill in for the regular caregiver who is usually either a professional caregiver or a family member. 

Peace of Mind

The Methodist Home offers respite care for adults who need round-the-clock skilled nursing for a short period of time. Respite care provides high-quality, uninterrupted care for your loved one, so you can have the time you need. You can have peace of mind that your loved one is in good hands with our team of highly trained, compassionate nursing staff.

Private Rooms

We have beautifully decorated private rooms and bathrooms available for respite care guests and a robust meal program that takes into account an individual’s dietary restrictions. Respite Care guests are welcome to enjoy our seasonal gardens, utilize our multi-media library, and spend time socializing with other residents in the comfortable common areas of our historic building. 

A Respite Care guest must:

  • Be an adult
  • Be under a physician’s care for chronic or acute medical illness
  • Be medically stable and free of infectious disease
  • Provide a current medical history and results of a recent medical exam.
