Mt Vernon Nursing and Rehab Center’s respite care services are designed to provide coverage for a primary caregiver who is temporarily unable to continue care or simply needs a break. This provides the caregiver the opportunity to take a vacation, visit family or attend to a personal health problem. Families often find that their loved ones enjoy a change of pace and upon return; respite care residents find security in familiar surroundings. Respite care is available for those who find they need a short period of professional nursing care. This program can provide medication management, nursing and nutritional support and respite for at-home caregivers.
