Illness and surgery place tremendous strains on the body, so the quality of care received during the recovery process is extremely important. A well-managed recovery reduces the risk of complications and reduces the possibility of needing further treatment or a return to hospital.
Convalescent care focuses on recovery from a debilitating illness. Although no longer ‘ill’, after some illnesses the body needs time to recuperate through a combination of rest, appropriate exercise and a good diet. This is often best done away from home, supported by specialist staff who provide specialist medical and therapeutic support.
If you care for an elderly family member, the value of quality respite care can never be underestimated. Carers should never feel guilty about taking a break. Not only will it help avoid stressful situations, it does wonders for morale.
At Les Jardins de Chantenay we have the facility to accommodate those elderly people who need or want to give their normal carer a well-earned break. They too can enjoy a change of environment and a chance to make new friends.
The health care center is a perfect haven for family to gather during these emotional times.
Memory care is a specialized type of elder care tailored specifically for the needs of seniors with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. At some point, a person with dementia/Alzheimer’s disease will need more care than you can provide at home.
Your loved one may need to move into residential care, with options that provide different levels of memory care depending on the patient’s needs. Medical care, personal assistance and support services are available.
