Caring for an elderly loved one can feel like a full-time job. When you need a break, you want to rest assured your loved one will get the quality of care you provide. Merwick Care and Rehabilitation Center, a Windsor Healthcare Community on the Princeton Health Campus provides the safe, secure and nurturing environment you want for your family member when you need some time to yourself.

The holiday season often brings commitments such as out of town visits, or vacations to celebrate the new year. Merwick Care and Rehabilitation Center offers seasonal respite packages so your loved one can be cared for with full medical supervision for as little, or as long, as you need it. We provide our gourmet meal service, daily housekeeping, and a range of activities during their stay. Our experienced staff provides excellent care around the clock in a clean and comfortable community.

Seasonal Respite guests of ours receive access to the following:

• Private Rooms & Junior Suites

• Clinical Specialty Programs including Cardiac, Ortho, & Pulmonary

• Rehabilitation by Kessler in our Airy Gym & Outdoor RehabPark

• Full-time On-Site Medical Director & Advanced Practice Nurse

• A Broad Range of Wellness Activities

• Complimentary High-Speed Wireless Internet

• On-Site Dialysis

• Personal concierge services

We have found that many patients choose a care center for respite stays based on non-clinical factors like convenience to home, or if a friend or neighbor had a positive experience there. But in order to ease your mind while out of town, its important to take into account which center offers you the best combination of factors.

We suggest you ask if the center has specialized programs to meet your loved one’s particular health needs, with supporting physicians onsite. You may even want to ask if there is a strong focus on customer service that will make their stay less stressful. By asking these questions, you’ll be better-equipped to choose the right short-term center for you or your loved one.

Merwick Care and Rehabilitation Center puts daily emphasis on recognizing the non-clinical factors that go into providing high quality customer service to all of our patients. Having a patient advocate to ensure comfort and well-being beyond medical care can make a stay much more pleasant.

At Merwick in the past year, we created a Guest Relations program where a personal concierge meets with patients daily to ensure total well-being. In addition to orchestrating interdepartmental communication, she manages details like ensuring fresh flowers are available in patient rooms, handling the logistics for family gatherings at Merwick, or arranging a session with Merwick’s massage therapist. The result has been a marked increase in patient satisfaction.

We invite you to come and take a tour of our state-of-the-art facility to see for yourself how easy it could be to rest assured that you loved one would be well taken care of during your need for a break. Merwick Care and Rehabilitation Center is located at 100 Plainsboro Road, across from University Medical Center of Princeton. They can be reached at 609-759-6000 or merwick@windsorhealthcare.org.
