Our Services

Tradtitional Respite Programs

Caregivers have obligations that sometimes take them away from their caregiving duties. And sometimes, they simply need a break and some time to catch their breath. Caregivers like these benefit from short-stay respite care for their loved ones, offered when accommodations are available in our rehabilitation and care centers.

While staying with us, your loved one will receive compassionate, respectful care and support, so you can relax while you attend to your other responsibilities. Your loved ones can take advantage of all the amenities offered at a Riverside Rehabilitation and Care Center. These include delicious dining options, wellness and fitness programs, arts and crafts, games, movies and much more.

We will also provide 24-hour medical staff and assistance with health and personal care needs, such as taking medication and dressing. While your loved one is staying with us, you can be sure they'll become part of the family.
