Short-Term Care, also known as respite care, offers opportunities to experience an Aegis community and its amenities on a temporary basis:
- Vacation Coverage – Vacation stays can range from a number of days to a few weeks. This allows you to take a short break, a long vacation or a business trip and leave your family member in our care.
- Hospital Discharge – These short stays are an excellent option for seniors who have recently been discharged from the hospital and need extra assistance while they heal.
- Trial Stay – Many of our residents originally tried Aegis by staying as a short-term guest to meet our staff and other residents, experience our activities and taste our cuisine. It’s an opportunity to test drive your new home.
While you are at work, your family member can spend the day with us to enjoy the activities, recreational outings, cuisine and companionship of our Aegis community. Day Stay includes all needed care, whether that is medication management, assistance with activities of daily living, or addressing any concerns related to memory care or safety. Available only in Washington state.
