Anyone who is taking care of a loved one knows what it means to get a welcome break--no matter how dedicated they are. Respite serves the caregiver as much as the person receiving the care. Sponsored by the Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi, St. Ann Center offers 24-hour overnight respite care (1-20 days) to frail elderly and adults with disabilities. Caregivers have an opportunity to take a few days off, a needed vacation or maybe a hospital stay of their own that can be worry free. Our overnight respite bedrooms have a warm, "bed and breakfast" appeal. St. Ann’s address is 2801 E. Morgan Ave. in Milwaukee. For more information about this and St. Ann Center’s adult day care service, contact Ron Zeilinger at 414-977-5064 or Ron.
