Being a short- or long-term caregiver means you are responsible for giving some type of support to a patient who needs to frequently visit the hospital, staying there, or was just released and requires around-the-clock care.
For patient caregivers staying nearby, you can always check in on our family or friend during visiting hours, cook and bring them a homemade meal, bring some gifts or cards, be a listening ear and listen to them talk, and making them laugh can promote recovery and mood.
Suites vs. Hotels
When you think about staying in a hotel, you can imagine a typical style and space with one or two beds, a bathroom, television, drawers, and maybe a mini-fridge in the room with barely any room for walking. Of course, hotels have other amenities such as room service, additional charge laundry service, a gym, meeting room or conference room, inside or outdoor public pool, and front desk services. However, if you are planning on staying in a typical hotel room for a medical procedure, the chances of you utilizing the pool areas are slim are you are rejuvenating, and the prices can be much more expensive for less space.
Staying in fully-furnished condos like with Avalon Suites allows you 2x space and a fully-furnished kitchen so you can buy groceries and save money on eating out, cook homemade meals for after the procedure, an in-suite washer and dryer so you can do your own laundry in the comfort of your own space, a living area, desk for table work or any sort, and amenities like access to a fitness center and gym, 24/7 concierge services, and a conference room. Not to mention Avalon Suites is conveniently located minutes away from the Toronto Western Hospital.
