2 The Value of Short-Term Stay Options for Families Local retirement communities offer short-term stay options Every person who provides care for an aging family member may be familiar with a version of the following scenario: you and your parent share a beautiful day together where you can set aside life's challenges and revel in the simple joy of each other's company. But many of the days are filled with doctor's visits, medication schedules, errands, and stress. The prospect of leaving town for a vacation or even to tackle a home project can seem daunting when caring for a loved one can occupy so much time. Senior Star at Wexford Place and Villa Ventura, two retirement communities located in the Kansas City area, have created a program perfect for the busy caregiver who may need a helping hand. The Relax & Restore is the short-term stay program for seniors who may need rest and rejuvenation after a hospital stay or in the event of a caregiver's absence. Many area families rely on the Relax & Restore service as a "home away from home" that provides: • A beautifully furnished apartment - complete with housekeeping, laundry services, and cable • Three delicious meals each day + Anytime Dining to fit any schedule • Coordination of therapeutic services, as needed • Transportation services to doctor's appointments and scheduled outings in the area • A wide variety of programs and events focused on whole person wellness • Fun and engaging social activities with new friends • 24-hour concierge services • Emergency call systems Both Villa Ventura and Wexford Place are CARF Accredited, meaning that they have met more than 1,500 benchmarks to be certified for providing excellence in service and care. To learn more about the program or to inquire about availability, call Wexford Place at 816-787-1017 or Villa Ventura at 816-298-9824.
