Respite Care Ottawa

At Alavida Lifestyles, we are passionate about providing exceptional experiences in retirement living that elevate the lives of our residents with unique amenities and beautiful spaces. Our social programs keep things fun and our meals are raved about throughout our communities. We also offer various care stays so we can extend our services to those who aren’t our residents. We provide the same standard of quality and care while attending to you or your loved one’s unique needs. Guests are invited to stay in our fully-furnished suites with access to a phone, TV, and internet to make their visit as comfortable as possible. Whether you are looking for short term senior care or considering moving in, our Alavida staff will make your experience enjoyable and memorable.

Respite Care

Primarily for caregivers, our respite care in Ottawa is designed to give you peace of mind about your loved one while you are apart from them. You likely spend your days working around their schedule and are a dedicated support system to them. However, you might want to book a trip, or you could be called away on urgent business.

Our program ensures your loved one is cared for in the same way you would look after them, all in a safe and comforting environment that is staffed at all times. We can tailor a plan that suits their lifestyle that ensures their routine is minimally disrupted during their time with us. We recommend a test stay to ensure your loved one feels comfortable in our space and can become a bit more familiar with our practices.

Convalescent Care

Leaving the hospital can look different for everyone depending on the extent of their condition and their road to recovery. We understand it may not be viable to go home right away and that you need a place to heal in the meantime. We make short-term convalescent care accessible and available at Alavida as a part of our programs.

Depending on the condition you are in, you may need around-the-clock monitoring, daily care, and/or support with returning to life as normal. Our expert staff is here for you each step of the way, all the while eliminating your responsibilities so you can focus on getting better. You won’t need to worry about daily chores like laundry and cooking, and many prefer this kind of stay to in-home care due to the assurance everything will be taken care of as opposed to a few tasks. Focus on your recovery and leave feeling like your old self again.

Short-Term and Trial Stays

Living an independent lifestyle in your own home as you age is important to many seniors. But that doesn’t mean you can’t visit retirement communities if you want. At Alavida, we want older people to feel comfortable with the idea of retirement living, offering both short-term and trial stays.

Short-term stays can be for all kinds of reasons. Maybe you’re finally putting in the dream kitchen you’ve always wanted, for instance, but your home is unlivable for a few weeks. Rather than stay in a hotel, you can choose to stay in one of our fully-furnished suites where all your meals are included, and you can take advantage of our amenities and social programs. You’ll likely even make new friends!

If you are considering moving into one of our communities, we would love for you to come in for a trial stay. It will help us get to know you, but more importantly, you will get to know us. We recommend staying for two weeks so that you can fully experience the atmosphere and lifestyle our retirement residences have to offer.

No matter why you’re staying with us, we promise to provide you with exceptional short term senior care. Contact us to learn more information about our locations and programs for yourself or a loved one.
