This testimonial was written by a former patient who experienced a level of care that allowed her to successfully recover, return home, and regain her independence.
Back in the day when doctors determined when patients should be discharged from the hospital, instead of insurance companies, or greedy corporate owners, patients were allowed to stay in the hospital until they were mentally and physically able to go home to where there was family or friends to bring them meals, get them to follow-up appointments, etc.
With the number of elderly people in our community who do not have the luxury of having family or close friends, there is the possibility of the patient going home, alone, and falling, or needing assistance (like meals, showering, dressing, etc.)
Luckily, there is a facility in Ellensburg called Avista (formerly Meadows Place). This was the last place I expected to go after having a pulmonary embolism in mid-July. Because I spent 3 days in the hospital “under observation” for this life-threatening condition, upon discharge, Medicare would not cover any rehabilitation facility.
I went home and was lucky enough to have a family member spend the night. One of these nights, I fell, and could not get back up. This is dangerous for someone on blood thinners. I yelled and yelled, and finally was heard. My nurse friend said, “that’s it, you are going to respite care for 30 days.”
What a wonderful, welcoming community! There were snacks in the fridge, tasty meals were prepared, and if I needed something a bit different (because I had to lose weight), my requests were met. They encourage residents to walk. You wear a necklace or bracelet with a “help” button, there is weekly housekeeping, they even do your laundry! We had a field trip to the Kittitas County Historical Museum followed by a trip to Winegar’s for ice cream. During the week they have bingo, dominoes, movies, etc. This is not a place where you are confined to your bed.
After 2 weeks there, my friends commented on how well I looked. After 3 weeks, I was getting even stronger (and a bit thinner).
There is no way I could have done this living at home, alone.
If you are in need of 30 days of respite care, please consider Avista. You will enjoy the community, the food, the activities, and the opportunity to regain your strength.
