Respite Care

What is Respite Care?

Many assisted living communities provide Respite Care or short-term stay options for seniors who need assisted or personal care or who need memory care. They provide a home-away-from-home when the caregiver has events like vacation or out-of-town business travel, or when the senior has an illness or is discharged from the hospital and needs extra care beyond what you can provide.

Paying for Respite Care

Private funds is the most common way to pay for respite care or with a mixture of private funds and long-term care insurance.
