Respite Care in Bellevue, Nebraska, just got a lot easier.

Welcome Relief When Needed.

Sometimes seniors who have recently had surgery or intensive inpatient rehabilitation may find they are not quite ready to return home when they are discharged. 

We have good news for you! Heritage Ridge – located in Bellevue, Nebraska – now offers short-term Respite Care for seniors who are not yet ready to return home after a hospital or rehab stay.  

Respite Care is a great way to “fill in the gap” between hospital, rehab and home. Respite Care offers that extra bit of assistance, support, and time to get stronger and healthier before returning home. 

At Heritage Pointe, we work with your physical therapists and your primary care physician to coordinate continued physical therapy, occupational therapy, and any other assistance you may require, and we’ll bring it to you right here on our campus. When you are ready to return home, we will make that step easy too.
