Respite Care

Respite care is for when a caregiver needs someone else to take care of his or her loved one for a short time. This break provides caregivers with some downtime to relax and recharge. Their loved one also gets a fresh change of pace in a new, welcoming environment. During a respite stay, seniors have the opportunity to experience the lifestyle of a senior living community and participate in daily activities with current residents.

While the move will probably generate bittersweet feelings, there are ways to focus on the happier and positive aspects by celebrating milestones.
