Respite Care

Pine Acres Rehabilitation & Living Center is proud to offer Respite Care to individuals who may need a “home away from home” while their family members or caregivers take a break from daily responsibilities of caring for a loved one.

During their stay with us, respite guests have access to the benefits of dedicated staff who offer assistance with bathing, dressing, grooming, activities and nutritional support. In addition, skilled nursing service is provided and medications, if ordered by a physician, are administered by licensed nursing staff.

Length of stay for respite care is usually a minimum of 48 hours and a maximum of 14 days with pre-set “check-in” and “check-out” dates. Of course, we can provide care for a longer period of time if requested. If needed, services from our rehabilitation team members or hospice programs may be incorporated into a customized plan of care that can be prearranged or developed at the time of admission.

With these services and our professional staff’s accessibility at any hour of the day or night, family members can enjoy peace of mind knowing we will be there to respond to any situation or simply lend emotional support.

Pine Acres is a participating provider in the Northwestern Illinois Area Agency on Aging (NIAAA) program for Respite Care. For more information on NIAAA Respite Services, you may visit their website at

As with any admission to Pine Acres, certain criteria must be met prior to the “check-in” date. For more information on our Respite Care Program, admitting criteria and availability, please contact our Director of Admissions
