Desert Hot Springs, California (PressExposure) February 19, 2012 -- In the United States, a Gallup poll revealed that 17 percent of all working Americans also care for an elderly or disabled family member or friend. Sometimes, a primary caregiver needs a break from the pressures of taking care of a special needs person. Mountain View Manor now offers respite services to assist those who provide primary care for others. With its newest assisted living initiative, Mountain View Manor's respite care gives short-term relief to caregivers in the Desert Hot Springs, Ca. area.
"Taking care of a family member is a 24 hour service," Mountain View Manor's website, http://mountainviewcare.com, states. "It can be difficult, time consuming and present mental and physical challenges. Families or friends who take on these responsibilities should be aware that they can be at serious risk of stress-related ailments associated with the non-stop care they provide."
Ultimately, the goal of respite care is to ensure a person will be able to continue providing primary care for a loved one. Mountain View Manor provides an enjoyable temporary home to those who stay there.
"Our respite care program provides a positive experience, as we include the full suite packages and amenities as if your family were staying with us as one of our home residents," said Millie Newsom, administrator at Mountain View Manor.
When it comes to cost for respite care, Mountain View Manor tailors each plan to the individual resident. As a general rule, a person can expect to pay around $200 per day for quality, 24-hour senior care with guidance and assistance with their daily needs and activities.
Besides respite care, Mountain View Manor also provides Continuing Care Retirement Communities, Supportive Housing Programs and Community Services.
