What is respite care?

In a senior living community, respite care refers to short-term stays for individuals who need temporary assistance with daily activities. This type of respite care is designed to provide relief for primary caregivers – including family caregivers – while ensuring that seniors receive the care and support they need in a safe and nurturing environment.

Short-term stays may range from a few days to a few weeks. During this time, the senior guest receives the same level of care and services available to long-term assisted living facility residents, including assistance with activities of daily living like bathing and dressing, medication management, meal preparation, and social activities.

Respite care provides primary caregivers with a temporary break from their caregiving responsibilities, allowing them to attend to their own needs, take a vacation, or address other obligations without worrying about the well-being of their loved one. This temporary relief can help prevent caregiver burnout and enhance the overall quality of care provided to the senior.

  • It provides care for a family member after surgery or illness
