One of the many advantages of staying at the Altenheim—guests receive the same quality services and care as residents. You may also like to know that Altenheim’s Respite Care program is priced less than many area hotels.

Your Home Away From Home

St. Louis Altenheim offers respite care to give older adults a special place to stay while a caregiver is away for any reason such as a holiday or business trip. This temporary stay may be just what your loved one needs if he/she wants to become more involved in social activities, keep company with others who share interests or to enjoy daily meals with friends. A change of scenery is a nice break for an older person as well as the caregiver and also provides an opportunity to “try” the Altenheim before making a move-in decision.

Guests can also stay at the Altenheim while recovering from an illness or surgery. Here, they are assured of a home-like atmosphere and around-the-clock care. And, when the unexpected happens, we can arrange for quick admissions as well.
