What is respite care?
Many adults are unaware of what respite care is or its availability. It can be a tremendous resource for caregivers and their families. Simply stated, respite care is a short-term stay in an assisted living community. Care providers should consider it as their holiday stress saver, especially if their loved one is living at home with them. Our facilities can and do offer respite stays that can be taken advantage of around the holidays (or any time).
Help Caregivers with Respite Care
Providing care for loved ones can be a difficult and challenging task. With chronic health concerns to take into account, completing last minute holiday tasks can be nearly impossible. Caregivers should take advantage of every resource available to them. A respite stay can be crucial for family members. It allows the caregiver to unwind and put on hold the responsibilities of full-time care for a day or two.
Planning around parties, shopping, visits, etc. during the holidays can be tough during this season. Respite care can help avoid serious potential stumbling blocks in caring for a loved one. This is especially true if the senior doesn’t like or is unable to travel. A short-term stay at our assisted living community can be the solution by providing your loved one with a community to live in where they’ll be well looked-after. Caregivers will have the peace of mind that their relative is being taken care of in a loving and secure environment.
