Great Alternative for Short-Term “Transitional” or “Respite” Stays

Alderman Oaks Retirement Community is offering comprehensive short-term “Transitional” stays for individuals and their families who have gone through the experience of rehab or other physical challenges and are not quite ready to resume their previous lifestyle.  A short-term “Respite” stay can be especially helpful for a family member or caregiver who needs assistance or a break from their everyday responsibilities.

A short-term “Transitional” or “Respite” rental package includes an attractively-furnished spacious studio, one-bedroom, or two-bedroom apartment accompanied by loving and supportive help to individuals preparing for their next steps.  Stays can range from one week to many weeks.
