[ Respite Care for Seniors ]

Are you a caregiver who would like to take a vacation or perhaps one who just needs a break from your responsibilities? If so, many of the assisted living, personal care and Alzheimer’s care communities offer respite stays, which can enable you to take some much needed time off. Respite stays are short-term, temporary stays. Some communities will have time limits with a minimum and/or maximum length of stay required, but generally a senior could reside in a community as a respite anywhere from one week to a month. Respite stays are also a great way for a senior to “try out” a community before actually becoming a resident. A senior could stay for a couple weeks and see if that community is the perfect fit before actually moving in. In addition, you may want to consider a respite stay for someone who is recuperating from an injury or illness and does not have a family member close by to provide some short term assistance.

If a community has a vacant apartment, they will furnish them with all the necessities and allow someone to move in as a respite. The cost for the stay is generally a daily rate that includes the price of the apartment, three meals a day, housekeeping, linen service, transportation and the assistance you need. As a respite, you can also participate in the activities hosted daily inside and outside of the community.

Respite stays are generally only offered by a community when they have availability, and finding out which communities have openings with the care you need can be a time consuming process. But Home to Home has done the work for you! We know our local senior living communities in Louisville and Southern Indiana, and know which ones are available for a short term stay.
