St. Ann Center’s 24-hour overnight respite service provides bed and breakfast-style rooms for the frail elderly and adults who have special needs.
Stays can range from one to 21 days, allowing caregivers a welcome break from the demands of caregiving—time for a vacation, business trip or weekend getaway.
Consider taking a tour of our overnight respite. Arrange a visit by calling Cassandra Clark, (414) 977-5007.
Who is eligible?
Adults age 18 or older who can safely participate. Individuals who need assistance with personal care and activities of daily living are eligible unless highly specialized skills are required to safely care for them.
Who is NOT eligible?
Individuals whose behavior requires physical intervention or disrupts the peaceful stay of other guests. Individuals who require skilled nursing, i.e. insulin, colostomy care and wound care are generally not eligible.
How do I sign up my loved one?
The application process, on average, takes two to three weeks. The process includes:
How often can my loved one stay?
Depending on availability, guests may stay one day to 21 days. Weekends and holidays book up quickly, so advance reservations are highly suggested.
What if my loved one needs medications administered?
Medication-certified staff are available on each shift to administer medications.
What if I only need respite care on weekends during the day?
For adults who do not need overnight care, day services are available in the respite care center on weekends, Saturday and Sunday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Can my loved one use other St. Ann Center services during their stay?
Yes! Additional services are available (with an additional charge) including outpatient rehab, hair and nail salon, massage and warm-water pool.
How much does respite care cost?

What can I possibly say to express the support that I have found at St. Ann Center over the past weekends. I could do a commercial testifying to the personal care and concern that your staff has shown to my dad. Checking for accuracy of the meds dispensed, to the gentle care in the respite center only confirms all the wonderful things I had heard prior to his stays. Thank you, St. Ann Center, for this outstanding service.”
