What is respite care?

Respite care is a temporary type of care available for a few hours, days, or even weeks for individuals who need it most. This can give a full-time caregiver a break from day-to-day care if required, such as for other commitments, a vacation, or if the caregiver is sick or tired.

What is included in a respite care stay?

Respite care includes assistance with day-to-day activities and companionship. The care plan can vary from patient to patient and may consist of advanced care such as for Alzheimer’s or dementia, if necessary.

Can the senior living community provide medication help?

This can vary from patient to patient and may include assistance with medication.

What should I look for in a respite care community?

In addition to being fully licensed, the community should be focused on patient care, providing enrichment and activities for individuals who come to stay, and the community should be clean and welcoming.

Is respite care expensive?

The costs will vary depending on the type of care that is needed and for how long. Many people are pleasantly surprised by the cost of respite care with everything that is included.

How will caregivers respond to my loved one's unique needs?
