Today’s Senior Living with Cogir – Respite Services and Staycations

Host Michelle Marques talks with Matt Horstmann, Executive Director of Cogir of Sonoma and Tracy Lehner, Interim Executive Director for Cogir of Rohnert Park. Matt and Tracy walk us through the various levels of care available to seniors, and compare things like nursing homes and convalescent hospitals to the more independent living options available at Cogir Senior Living. Matt and Tracy also talk about the way Cogir quickly adapted to the coronavirus pandemic, and ended up being the only senior living facilities in Sonoma County without an outbreak of COVID-19.

Now that more of the population is vaccinated and travel is becoming a possibility, families who are caring for a loved one may want to take a vacation, but want the peace of mind knowing that their loved one is being taken care of well. Cogir offers both staycations and respite services for seniors (a minimum of two weeks stay) to give families a chance to check out the facilities. Learn more at
