Seniors along Boston’s South Shore sample short stays as a way to “test drive” the assisted living option. Many people turn to short-term stays at Allerton House Assisted Living in Quincy following hospitalization or a stay in a skilled nursing center because they need time for recovery and recuperation before returning home. A respite care plan can incorporate Medicare Part B covered services, such as physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy in addition to supportive and personal care services. Many permanent residents have made the decision to join our community full time after a 'trial' respite stay.
Charming, furnished apartments are available for short-term or vacation stays at Allerton House at Hancock Park. Guests can reserve apartments for one week to one month, depending on need and availability. A short-term respite stay allows someone to sample the assisted living lifestyle, without making a permanent commitment.
Older adults whose adult children are active caregivers, often choose short stays or trial stays for their parents when they themselves require a respite from full-time care-giving.
