A. Meth-Wick is unique in that it combines housing options with a range of services and health care assistance so you can live the way you want to, whether it be independent living, independent living with supported services, assisted living or licensed nursing care. As your needs change, your living arrangements and health care services can change as well, all without having to leave the security and comfort of an established community.
Q. What is respite care?
A. Respite care involves having a trained individual assume the caregiver role for short periods-whether a few hours or a few weeks-so that the caregiver has a chance to get a haircut, take a vacation, go to a doctor’s appointment, or take care of other personal matters. It can also refer to a brief recovery time following surgery during which a person needs supervised care.
