Short Stay (Respite Care) Retirement Homes

Some patients choose to stay in a respite care facility after their knee replacement surgery. Respite care in a retirement home, after surgery, means that you may have the following:

  • A fully furnished room
  • Meals
  • 24/7 assistance from qualified personnel
  • In-room emergency call bell system
  • Assistance with bathing and dressing
  • Access to physiotherapy

If you decide to purchase respite care after discharge from hospital, you must make these arrangements before your surgery. Please note that there will be a charge for these services (not covered by OHIP).

After your surgery, inform your care team about your plans for respite care.
