Respite services can either refer to a temporary stay at a senior living facility, or to in-home care that is provided for a short period of time. Respite services provide several advantages for seniors and their families. This type of care is often used when the family will be going out of town, or otherwise cannot care for the senior. Respite services can also be used to provide a reprieve for over-taxed family caregivers who need a break, especially in the case of seniors with challenging conditions like Alzheimer’s or dementia, or to help begin the gradual process of transitioning a senior into living in a community fulltime.
Most assisted living, skilled nursing, and memory care communities offer respite services. The same services and amenities that long-term residents enjoy are also available to respite residents. We hold all of the communities we provide referrals for to the highest possible standard, and respite services are no exception. Whether you or your loved one are staying for a few days or a few years, you’ll enjoy the same attention to detail and superior service.
Respite Services are defined as short-term care while at home or at a senior community. This service usually takes the role of a family caregiver for a short amount of time.
