New "Respite Care" Program at Someren Glen Retirement Community

Someren Glen Retirement Community provides the same level of care to their respite guests that they provide to all of their residents.

If you or a family member are looking for respite care due to the need to find a short term solution following a discharge from rehab or the inability to travel with family to out of town events, Someren Glen has an option for you. Often when discharged from a rehabilitation community, people find themselves stuck in a sort of limbo. They are often not quite ready to live independently but no longer qualify for rehabilitation services through Medicare. These folks will often hire some help at home but they only get care a few hours a day and should they have an immediate need when their home health worker is not present, they have no way of getting the assistance they need. Through respite care, Someren Glen provides residents with 24-hour care givers as well as in house therapy services to help continue to strengthen their respite guests. After a week or two, their guests can feel confident moving back home independently without the fear of having another incident and having to return to the hospital and go through everything again.

For more information, please contact Doug Thompson, Director of Sales & Marketing, 720-974-2902, dthompson@clcmail.org, Someren Glen, 5000 E Arapahoe Road, Centennial, CO 80122.
