Park Vista is pleased to offer respite care services for senior citizens and caregivers in need of assistance. Respite care is temporary assistance in a home-like apartment setting. Respite guests will benefit from all of our assisted living amenities such as home-cooked meals, housekeeping and laundry services, access to our beauty salon, and vital sign monitoring.
We understand how important the transition to retirement living is to you and your loved ones. At Park Vista, we work closely with our residents on an individual basis to assess all of the financing options available.
Long Term Care Insurance
Long-term care insurance policies are typically designed to help cover the costs of:
- in home assistance for daily activities like bathing, dressing, eating and cleaning;
- community programs, such as adult day care,
- visiting nurses;
- care in a nursing home;
- and assisted living services that are provided in a special residential setting other than your own home – such as those provided at Park Vista Retirement Living communities. These services may include meals, health monitoring, and help with daily activities.
Long term care insurance may not be the right option for everyone, so it’s important that you weigh the benefits against the risks.
You are encouraged to consult with your insurance provider. You may also seek the advice of your trust officer, financial planner, or elder care attorney for more information.
