Short-Term Stay at
Wheatland Lodge

A vital break for family caregivers.

Caregiving for an older adult is a demanding job and no one is equipped to do it alone! Finding short-term stay services can provide a vital break for family caregivers. Perhaps you are going on an extended vacation, and you are worried about a loved one at home. Maybe you are exhausted, feeling isolated or burned out. Seeking the conveniences of a short-term stay can help ease the burden of family caregiving and help to relieve stress and bring back some energy and balance into your life. A short-term stay can also be a benefit for the person you are caring for by providing stimulation and a welcome change of routine. Seeking support and maintaining your own health is important to managing your role as a caregiver. It is not selfish to need time to yourself. After a break to recharge and reset, you’ll feel more focused and energetic.
