For those who have an aging or disabled parent or loved one, taking care of them on a daily basis can be very rewarding, but also very challenging. These family members may require bathing, dressing or just need 24 hour help getting around. Otterbein Franklin SeniorLife Community offers respite services for this very reason. Respite is an option for caregivers who need a break or assistance with their loved one, as well as some time for themselves. Respite services are offered for a few days or for weeks if needed. While their caregivers are getting a break, loved ones will be given the same care and consideration that all our residents receive. This includes medical care if needed, as well as social activities to enrich their hearts and minds. Otterbein Franklin also offers support groups or helpful coping strategies to assist caregivers with caring for their family member.
- Nursing Care
- Social activities
- Emotional Support
- Coping strategies for caregivers
Otterbein Franklin also offers hospice services. Hospice services are designed to assist families with caring for loved ones in advanced illness. Hospice services provide loved ones with comfort and support, rather than rehab or a cure. This could include medical and emotional support if need, as well as a pain management, for as long a life as possible.
- Emotional support
- Counseling for caregivers
- Pain management
- Advanced aging / Illness information
