Long-term care is when a person requires assistance with his or her physical or emotional needs over an extended period of time. The need might be due to a terminal condition, disability, illness, injury, or the challenges of old age. The need for long-term care may only last for a few weeks or months, or it may go on for years as is customary in a traditional nursing home.

Respite quite literally means to provide temporary rest or relief. Respite care provides short-term, temporary nursing care in a home-like setting to family members that you care for.
The goal of respite care at Greenwood is to successfully provide an interval of rest for the resident and his or her primary caregivers. You receive the peace of mind that comes from knowing your family members are being cared for 24 hours a day by a dedicated staff of medical professionals. Research has shown that providing repite care can have a positive effect on the health of the caregiver as well as the resident.
