Families turn to us to give primary caregivers a break from daily caregiving duties or to secure older family members a safe place to live while family members are on vacation. Staying at Goddard House for a few weeks while household construction projects are being done or as a supportive stay is needed are also situations in which a short-term stay can be a good solution. Furniture, linens, cable television and phone services are all included.

Care for caregivers is so important and often overlooked, especially if you are caring for a loved one. With a respite stay at Goddard House, your loved one can experience all the benefits of residency without a long-term commitment, while you experience peace of mind! Just a short break from the everyday stresses of caregiving can make a world of difference. Learn more about the importance of taking a break »

Transitioning after a Rehab or Hospital Stay

Reimbursement constraints often dictate when seniors are discharged from a hospital stay, even if home isn’t the safest option. A short-term Assisted Living stay, where a senior is surrounded by social opportunities, engaging programs and 24-hour awake care staff, can help bridge the gap and reduce the likelihood of re-hospitalization.

“Try Out” Living at Goddard House

A short-term trial stay is a popular option for those who want to maintain their autonomy and independence yet are also contemplating a move to Assisted Living. Consider a “Try-it-Out” stay in one of our furnished apartments. Trial stay residents have the advantage of experiencing Goddard House and all the conveniences Assisted Living has to offer. The moving-in phase is simplified while the experience is often compared to a vacation.
