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

Alderman Oaks Retirement Community is offering 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. Also, 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 or one-bedroom apartment accompanied by loving and supportive help to individuals preparing for their next steps.  Stays are typically two weeks or more, but we are open to consider exceptions.

Alderman Oaks is in the “Heart” of Downtown Sarasota and is one of the very few Rental-Only Senior Living Communities that offers both Independent and Assisted Lifesyles.

This Translates into a combination of Standard Assisted Living Licensed Apartments along with the flexibility of non-licensed Independent Living Apartments at lower costs.
