Short Stay Programme

River Road Retirement Residents offers convenient short-term (2-4 weeks) or longer term respite care services with all of the personal benefits and amenities we provide our residents who’ve made their home with us.
You might consider a short-term respite care when you need:

  • Extra care and assistance before returning home after a hospital stay
  • Continued short-term rehabilitation after a hip or knee replacement
  • A place to stay when an emergency has made your home unsafe or uninhabitable
  • Any time you feel like a ‘being-pampered’ get-away

A short-term respite care stay can also help you experience what our warm and welcoming retirement community has to offer and see how you fit in with the residents who live here before you decide to become a full-time resident.

If you are a caregiver, you might also consider a respite stay when you need a break — whether it’s for work, a vacation, or just a much-needed breather — and you don’t want to leave a parent or a partner who is not fully independent.
