PEARL’S PLACE IS TEMPORARILY NOT AVAILABLE FOR RENT; IT WILL BE USED AS AN OUTPATIENT CLINIC FOR ALL ESCAPEES THAT LIVE OR CAMP AT RAINBOW PARK and ESCAPEES CARE RESIDENTS for the next 12 to 18 months.
Beginning May 4, 2015, CHI St. Luke’s Health Memorial Clinics will be open, two days each week, for Outpatient medical care and wellness (most insurance and Medicare will be accepted).
Pearl's Place is CARE's "Ronald McDonald" house. It provides a place for overnight and weekend supervision for ADC clients when their caregivers are away, by hiring a sitter to stay with a loved one.
There are few things more physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausting than being a 24-hour caregiver. Seeing the gradual decline in caregiver's energy was the catalyst behind the cottage.
Before the existence of Pearl's Place, caregivers had no alternative except putting their loved ones temporarily in a nursing home. If the person doesn¹t need 24-hour nursing care, using a nursing home for overnight or weekend, respite time is expensive and involves a new environment which further confuses those who are already confused.
In addition to providing an overnight facility for ADC clients so caregivers can have more respite time, the cottage can be used by people from around the country who want help while recovering from surgery, to fly in to tour CARE or for families to visit residents.
Most Escapees bring their RV to the Center and live in it while recovering, but sometimes it is not practical to move an RV to Texas for a short recovery period. Arrangements can be made to have the surgery in Houston, where some of the finest hospitals and doctors in the country are located, and then rent the cottage during the recovery period. Reservations are necessary.
The cottage rents for about 50% of local hotel charges. In addition to rent, caregivers are responsible for getting and paying a sitter, if needed.
Whatever your health need, call CARE and speak with our nurse. We will identify if your need matches our services.
