What to know when considering a respite stay at Aegis Living of Dana Point

1. Include your parent or spouse. When planning for time off or away from caregiving for a family member with dementia be sure to include them in the decisions as much as possible. No matter what phase of dementia they currently live with it is important to share your plans and discuss the respite care options. Explain where you are going or what you are doing so they know why this change is occurring. Discuss the benefits of having their own adventure at our dementia care facility in Las Vegas, new activities, delicious food, and making new friends that are their peers.
2. Review specific needs. Gather any medical or personal notes you have about your family member’s needs. Research what dementia care communities in Dana Point provide with their respite care. Learn your options, tour the dementia care community and ensure all of your questions are answered ahead of time. Share any special care needs with the community adviser so you can be sure they are able to make the experience a positive one.
3. Plan for a positive experience. Share with your loved one the good experience you had while touring the community you chose for the respite stay. Share with them pictures of the community and the people that you met. Tell them stories about the residents they will meet at the community so they can be more comfortable meeting new people. Decide together what small personal items they will bring with them for their respite stay. Day of, make it a special day with the food, music and other hobbies that they enjoy. Make the move to the community part of the special day. If possible send photos, emails and call during your time away to find out all of the wonderful experiences they are having.
