Do you offer respite or temporary care?
Because the responsibility of providing assistance to an elderly or disabled loved one who lives at home can be stressful and time-consuming, we are proud to offer day care and temporary respite care to provide short-term relief for caregivers who may not be able to find the time to look after their own needs.
Our day care and respite care provides short-term relief for caregivers who may need a temporary break for any number of reasons, including:
- If the caregiver or another family member falls ill
- If there is a change in the caregiver’s work schedule where care is needed during the day
- If a caregiver is going on vacation
- To provide time for the caregiver to shop, relax, go to appointments, exercise, etc.
For more information about respite or temporary care, please call us at 737.618.5264 or send us an email using the button below! *Contingent upon Assessment and availability.
What can you tell me about the layout of your community?
Lampasas Assisted Living was built to mimic a home environment and provide safe living spaces for seniors and individuals needing assistance with activities of daily living. Our private and shared floor plans were designed for safety while providing a cozy space with all of the comforts of home.
- We provide activity areas and rooms for TV viewing, arts & crafts and reading as well as areas for visiting and private dining with the family.
- Our designs minimize confusion, encourage social interaction, enhance visual stimulation, and provide a home-like atmosphere
- Appropriately-placed handrails, security, and monitoring systems are in place throughout the property to ensure resident safety.
By designing our community to be more intimate, we’re better able to tailor our daily care to accommodate our residents’ individual needs, from activities to assistance and meals.
