When people need a little extra care and attention following an illness or injury, or because their regular caregiver is on vacation, respite care is a good option.
Mixing in some friendly company can work wonders on our sense of well-being. It can also have a very real impact on our health and healing. Some communities, like Village Green, also offer guest stay apartments for overnight friends and family visitors.
‘Respite’ is a term widely used to mean a break or rest from the routine of daily life, particularly when that involves someone who needs care or provides care for another person.
It has also come to refer to a short-term stay in a comfortable community where assisted living services are provided. It’s a chance to stay for a limited time—such as a week or a month—in a private, furnished apartment with the same amenities as the community’s long-term residents.
Guest stays in independent living offer anyone considering a move a way to experience community life before making a commitment.
Short-term stays are an excellent option for someone who can’t stay home alone or whose primary caregiver is temporarily unavailable. It’s especially helpful when trying to decide whether a particular independent or assisted living community will offer the level of care and joy you seek.
Some of the other benefits of respite care can include:
Many caregivers are family members who often find it hard to take time for self-care. Arranging a short-term stay for a loved one can give them the time they need to rest, recharge, and refocus on their own needs for a while.
The answer to this question can vary based on your needs and situation. Talk with a community advisor to find the right fit.
