Staying at the WCA Home after surgery is an ideal way to recover from hospitalization without burdening friends or family on whom you would depend for the extra support you need. Feelings of vulnerability and anxiety can complicate your recovery. Your stay with us will ensure you get all the help you need.

A break for caregivers

Respite Care is also a way of making sure your loved one is cared for while you, the caregiver, take a needed vacation or address other needs of yourself or your family.

A trial stay

If you or your loved one are thinking of assisted living, try a short stay at the WCA Home to see if you like it.
