Respite Care in Bennington, NE

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 offer the help you need! Ridgewood Senior Living – located in Bennington, Nebraska – 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 Ridgewood, 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.

Relief for Caregivers Is Right Here.

Whether you provide care and support to a loved one in your own home or you visit them regularly to make sure they are well, being a caregiver for a senior can be demanding.

We have good news for you! Short-term Respite Care is a wonderful way for family caregivers to take a break for themselves while ensuring their loved one is safe, happy and well cared for. From a few days to several weeks, we will provide your loved one with a comfortable, safe, enjoyable stay while YOU take care of yourself.

Are you or a loved one thinking about retirement living options? Respite Care is a great way to “try out” living in a retirement community before making a big change. Respite Care offers a unique way to introduce the benefits of senior living to today’s seniors.
