Care Options | Finding A Community | Here For A Loved One

Respite Care 101

Respite care services are intended for those in need of temporary care. Often provided within the home-like environment of a senior living community, respite care offers individuals the all-inclusive support they need, regardless of their situation. That means assisting those who are gaining strength post-surgery, aiding seniors in health recovery, providing hospice care where families can stay right with their loved one and more.

No matter the circumstance, respite care ensures that families have peace of mind that their loved one is receiving specialized and personalized care. For family members who are also acting as their loved one’s caregiver, that reassurance can be exactly what they need to take a well-deserved break from providing 24/7 care.

Turn To Respite Care

Respite care is frequently recommended for seniors who are recovering from surgery or a hospital stay. In these situations, there is often an increased risk of fall, additional medications to manage, needed mobility support and more. Respite care is beneficial during these times of need to provide talented care services for both seniors and families.

Respite care is not only intended for those recovering from surgery or hospital stays; it can be a great resource for any senior in need of temporary care. By offering assistance with a variety of services, seniors and families can focus on what’s most important: a smooth recovery.

Family Caregiver Support

Many family members act as their loved one’s caregiver, and while it’s rewarding, providing 24/7 care can be overwhelming. It’s important that family caregivers remember that it’s important to practice self-care and take care of their health.

Respite care services provide family members with the support system they need to best care for their loved one and themselves. Whether they’re traveling out of town, running errands or simply need additional support, respite care allows families the flexibility they need with short-term, temporary care for their loved one.
