In the fast paced world of specialized medical care it is within the realm of possibility for a family to have to seek or find themselves being treated for a medical condition far from home. There is nothing more stressful than having to deal with the traumatic illness or injury of a family member, especially one that takes you away from home because of the care needed at a specialized hospital, trauma center or rehabilitation center. Spending weeks away from home is stressful enough without also living out of a suitcase in some impersonal hotel room.
In a situation like this there is another alternative for short-term residency; you might want to consider Corporate Housing as an option. Corporate apartments or suites are fully furnished, including kitchen ware, and offer all the comforts of home in a city away from home. Corporate units are well maintained and provide more privacy and space than a hotel room.
If you are one of those people who prefers a more homey atmosphere, and more privacy when you are away from home, corporate housing in this situation will meet your needs. Corporate housing also offers you a respite from the hectic pace of the hospital. Your safety, security and peace of mind are available and your insurance company will reimburse the cost of the stay; check your policy.
Before you consider spending weeks living in a hotel room while your family member is in the hospital or rehabilitation, look into corporate housing as an alternative. Alleviating the stress on yourself during your family member’s stay away from home will assist in their recovery.
