Respite Care NYC
If you have had to take care of an ill or disabled individual at home, you are aware that it is not an easy job. There is a marked need among those who are looking after their loved ones to take care of themselves as well. The physical wear and tear, as well as the emotional toll, can have serious health consequences on the caretaker. They need a break from their responsibilities to recharge their batteries. Here at Glen Island, we recognize and address this need through our innovative Respite program. Providing Respite care is an alternate caregiving arrangement that gives family members a temporary period of relief. It is designed to keep an incapacitated individual safe and comfortable so that their caregiver can enjoy peace of mind with that much-needed break— whether it be time for a vacation, personal health, or just to relieve stress and weariness. The Glen Island Center is here to assist and provides a sense of security and safety for both the individual requiring the care needs, as well as those who take on that heavy responsibility of providing that care.
At Glen Island Center, a single short-term stay may last up to 30 days. Additional stays are possible, for a maximum of 42 days in any given year, under the New York State funded Respite Program. The respite service is open to adults with subacute, chronic or terminal illnesses who require supervision, monitoring, and medication management. Respite services are also available for those seeking to pay privately. There is no limit on the number of days for a private Respite patient.
Prior to a stay in our facility for respite care NYC, we bring seniors and family members together to conduct an assessment. This assessment helps determine the appropriate services and care for each individual.
Patients are admitted under several financial programs, including self pay, private insurances, and Medicaid.
If you’ve been to other nursing centers where you just felt like you were a number waiting to be processed, you need not worry that you will be treated this way at Glen Island Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation and our Respite Care NYC facility. Our staff provides a personal touch to support our patients and make them feel as if they were at home. We’re proud of the level of care we offer, and will take every opportunity to improve. Our dedicated staff ensures that everyone’s individual needs are met in a warm, loving and respectful manner.
