Program Description

“Think of respite care as a support system for family caregivers. Respite care services give you the flexibility of choosing short-term or temporary care so you can take time away from your caregiving responsibilities. Maybe you have to travel for business or you’re taking a vacation. Or you might have errands to run or you just need to rest."

Assisted living facilities provide seniors with the option to temporarily stay as a resident for the day, week or month and in the process are able to fill beds that would have remained empty.

Providing family or elderly caregivers with this short-term option may eliminate seniors from going into assisted living permanently when all that is required is a brief stay for caregivers respite or to take care of daily needs such as appointments or employment concerns, vacation or other issues that may come up.

Short-term respite at assisted living may also be useful after a senior is discharged from the hospital and needs in-term care.

The benefit of short-term elderly caregiver respite is that it may offer a welcome or well deserved change for both senior and caregiver, and seniors can experience assisted living as an option they may want to consider for themselves in the future.

Assisted Living service may include:

-Daily housekeeping
-Medical attention by a nurse

-Sunrise Assited Living Short-Term Stays
-Brookdale Short-Term Respite Stay
