Respite Support

Caring for an aging loved one can be a rewarding but stressful job. That’s why we offer our respite support program, Retreat to The Gardens! This short-term stay program is designed to give family caregivers a break while their relative enjoys all of our amenities.

Mike’s Story

Mike and his family were nervous at first about assisted living. They wondered if Mike would be able to maintain his independence and were unsure of whether he would be able to stay close to home and family. Once settled at The Gardens, Mike was able to continue to drive and even work at his part-time job. He found that he enjoyed his independence while living in a safe and loving environment.

The Gardens enjoys outstanding support from the Crete community. Our low-turnover staff is well-known for the quality of care and commitment we’ve provided since 1996.
