You love being home, but as John Lennon sang, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” That means having a backup plan. Many people try to get away from it all for a little while. The United States military has allotted R&R time – Rest & Recuperation – for combat soldiers for decades.

Short-Term Care or Destination Spa? It’s Just What the Doctor Ordered, A.G. Rhodes

A Spa for Seniors

Destination spas are designed for exactly that: rest, recuperation, relaxation, recreation, and recovery. Imagine you and a friend taking a mini-vacation to a safe, welcoming spot with gardens and a courtyard. You’re given a spacious, clean room filled with natural light. You bring along some favorite belongings like a framed photo or a special pillow to remind you of home. You choose from a variety of healthful meals and snacks that you can eat in your room, in the dining room, or outside on the patio.

You’re invited but never pressured to attend a variety of activities. Choices include live music, arts and crafts, visits from therapy animals, interesting demonstrations, religious meetings, and group games. With daily opportunities to meet new friends in this friendly community, you never feel lonely. If you prefer privacy, you’ve got it, whether you want to read, watch TV, use the Internet, work on puzzles, or just sit in a chair to look out the window at the flowers. Or sleep!

Need help with personal care? Your medications are brought to you and help is available in showering and dressing. You can even get your hair washed, trimmed, or styled in the combination beauty/barbershop.

Another perk of staying at such a spa is getting a break from exhausting household chores. Instead, our staff pampers you so you can focus on recuperation.
