Short-Term Stays

Short-term stays are a great solution for those times when family caregivers are traveling or might just need a short break from caring for the senior in their life. And many seniors really appreciate the additional assistance a short-term stay provides when they are ill or recovering from illness, injury or surgery.

Respite care not only provides short breaks that can relieve stress and restore everyone’s energy, but can actually become a regularly scheduled reprieve. Short-term stays offer a refreshing change of pace for seniors, with the opportunity to make new friends, take part in our dynamic calendar of events and outings and enjoy our great cuisine. In fact, some of our permanent residents decided to move to The Fountains at The Albemarle after experiencing the benefits of a short-term stay.

The Fountains at The Albemarle offers short-term stays (30 day minimum) for both Assisted Living and Memory Care with flexible schedules and care packages. We are an intimate, family-centric community with a team of professional caretakers who always gear all care towards resident comfort and choice.

Our short-term stay residents are able to experience many of the benefits of The Fountains at The Albemarle, including:

  • Fully furnished apartment with full bath and wireless resident call system

  • Maintenance, housekeeping and scheduled local transportation services for appointments, outings and errands

If you are looking for a casual place to read the paper and enjoy a cup of joe, stop by our Coffee Bistro for daily seasonal beverages such as coffee, hot chocolate and lemonade as well as fresh-baked muffins or cookies. Or, pick up your items and take them to go.
