Respite stays | Westerwood

Need a break? Schedule a Respite Care stay with Westerwood.

Being a full-time caretaker can feel overwhelming at times. Balancing the rest of life and taking care of your needs can be difficult when caring for a loved one.

At Westerwood, we understand these challenges and we want to help you when you need it with a scheduled respite stay at Westerwood Rehabilitation and Assisted Living. Whether it’s for several days or a few weeks, we can accommodate your loved one’s 24/7 care needs with our experienced, compassionate team.

The Westerwood Rehabilitation provides short-term rehabilitation, long-term care, and respite stay options with a choice of private or semi-private rooms. The center is Medicare and Medicaid certified and exceeds state staffing requirements for nursing aides.

Westerwood has earned a five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which assesses nursing care communities on quality of care and staffing guidelines. With registered nurses on staff and a physician on call at all times, expert resident care is our top priority.

Person-centered respite care on your terms.

Quality care is more than medicine, equipment, and procedures. It also encompasses compassion, a commitment to service and positive relationships built on communication. Our skilled nursing team follows this guiding question: “How can we make your day the best day possible?”

Person-centered care means treating residents like people, not patients. Combined with rigorous medical practices and one of the highest staff-to-patient ratios in the state, we deliver on that promise with excellent long-term skilled nursing care.
