It’s common knowledge, to the point of comedy, that holiday travel can be stressful. Choosing your travel dates, packing up your family’s belongings, dealing with airports and highways, and checking your gift list twice are all frustrating enough without adding the worry of caring for your loved one who is unable to travel with you.
If you are the primary caregiver for a loved one who is unable to travel for the holidays like they used to, you may think you have to cancel your own plans to care for them. But caregivers, don’t call the airlines to cancel just yet (although those late-booking passengers who couldn’t get tickets would love it if you did). The short term and respite care at Stone Valley Assisted Living and Memory Care in Reno, Nevada, can provide your loved one with top-notch care while you travel this holiday season.
It is normal to feel torn about holiday plans when you care for a loved one who simply cannot travel with you for the holidays. You want to enjoy the holidays with your friends and family who live far away, who you get to see only a few times per year. But you also know that nobody can care for your loved one like you do—well, almost nobody.
The professional, caring staff at Stone Valley has the perfect solution. Whether you’re going away on business, planning a vacation, or simply need a break from caregiving, respite care at Stone Valley is the perfect solution for providing your loved one with the Person-Centered Care that they need. The community’s safe, nurturing environment and professional staff will support the wellness needs of your loved one while you travel to see your friends and family this holiday season.
While you’re gone, your loved one can rest and enjoy socializing with team members and other residents. And you’ll have peace of mind knowing each suite features its own emergency response system, and that the Stone Valley staff is available 24/7 to assist your loved ones with every one of their needs.
Stone Valley not only offers caring staff around the clock, but your loved one will also enjoy the community’s amenities, just like the residents. It’s easy to become spoiled with the 24/7 dining program. Your loved one will enjoy gourmet food prepared from the freshest ingredients by the Executive Chef, any time of day or night. The chef is trained and happy to accommodate guests with dietary needs due to various health restrictions, such as low gluten and sugar-free diets, and much more.
They will also be able to enjoy the community’s indoor and outdoor common areas (weather permitting, of course). The community’s many secured walking paths and well-tended, enclosed gardens encourage a daily stroll. Your loved one can feel safe while enjoying the outdoor environment with a patio that features comfortable benches and beautiful views.
