Respite & Short Stay

While many of our residents make Chelsea Retirement Community their permanent home, many others are with us for a shorter period of time while taking advantage of either our Respite or Short-Stay Programs.

These programs allow individuals to enjoy a break from the physically and emotionally exhausting jobs of caring for a home and/or being a caregiver for a loved one. Respite and Short-Stay residents can get a break from the daily burdens of homeownership while living in a maintenance-free environment, enjoying delicious meals and partaking in social and educational activities on campus.

Respite Program

Do you care for a loved one with Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia or memory loss? Or are you a caregiver for an aging parent or spouse who needs assistance with everyday tasks, and/or requires physical therapy and rehabilitative services? If so, then you are well aware of the physical and emotional toll that caregiving can take. We can help you to make sure that you keep yourself healthy as you care for your loved one. Residents who may need a helping hand are welcome to stay at our state-of-art memory care center Towsley Village and Glazier Assisted Living on a non-permanent basis. This allows loved ones the 24-hour care he or she needs, while affording the primary caregiver the opportunity to rest and rejuvenate.

Residents are welcome to stay from seven days to 180 days. Call 734.433.1000 ext. 7324 to learn more about our Respite Stay Program.

Short-Stay Program

Relax in a nicely furnished and well-appointed apartment and enjoy housekeeping services, delicious dining, and all of the social, physical and educational activities we offer on our beautiful campus. We’ll take care of the chores so you can take care of yourself. We also offer free shuttle transportation to residents so you can easily enjoy all of the shopping and cultural opportunities available in the City of Chelsea.

There is no long-term commitment – stay for a month or six months, the choice is yours. Call 734.433.1000 ext. 7324 to learn more about the flexible Short-Stay Program options that are available to you.
