What Is Respite Care?

When people care for seniors, it is a commitment that can quickly become overwhelming. Unfortunately, such a demanding occupation often leads to burnout, which causes high turnover for caregivers. Basically, Respite Care provides breaks for caregivers so that they can step away, get some well-deserved rest, and then return to work ready to resume the essential role of monitoring the health and wellness of seniors.

What Are the Benefits of Respite Care?

Respite Care not only positively impacts seniors, but it benefits the people who ensure the care and safety of older folks. 

For example, some of the benefits of Respite Care for caregivers include:

  • Time to focus on their own mental and physical health 
  • Not feeling guilty about temporarily stepping away
  • Solidifying the concept that taking time off is necessary for caregivers
  • Senior care is covered when caregivers are facing health challenges such as surgery

When caregivers take time for themselves, they return rested, relaxed, and ready to provide the best care possible for seniors. 

Seniors also benefit from Respite Care in many ways, such as:

  • Scheduled medical care and meals remain on time
  • Activities and programs continue uninterrupted
  • Monitored activities of daily living (ADLs)
  • Temporary accommodations for seniors

What Other Programs Are Available?

Our comprehensive approach to senior care includes an array of programs and services so that all of our residents’ needs are met. The key to excellent senior care is personlized plans that ensure that each resident receive the exact level of care they require.
