Specialized Care - Aegis of Kent
Alternative Options for Your Loved One with Dementia
Short-Term Stay, also known as respite, is available for easy transition from a hospital or skilled nursing facility to long-term assisted living or for further recovery before going home. Temporary stays allow these visitors to experience all the amenities that Aegis has to offer, including our chef-prepared meals, comfortable common spaces, fully furnished private apartments and caring staff. Many times, a respite stay can offer an easy transition into a permanent move or a needed break for an exhausted caregiver.
Day Stay. For those seniors who may be home alone during the day, our day stay program allows them to spend the day with us to enjoy the activities, recreational outings, cuisine and companionship of our Aegis community. Day stay includes needed care, whether that is medications management, assistance with activities of daily living or addressing any memory care concerns and safety issues. Establishing a routine at Aegis can be a great way to transition to a permanent move or provide a needed break for the primary caregiver during the day.
