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.
