Respite Care Stays

A short-term or respite stay is a convenient option when planned or unforeseen circumstances require you to seek temporary senior housing for your loved one. Knowing they can move seamlessly into a care environment that supports their wellness needs provides peace of mind when you are called away for business or vacation, or if you just need a short break from caregiving.

A respite care stay also offers guests and family members the extra security of skilled nursing assistance during an illness or rehabilitation after a hospital visit, and may even be helpful before, during, or after an emergency affecting the senior’s home environment, such as an extreme weather event. Many Sunrise residents first experienced our senior housing community lifestyle during a short-term stay.

Find out more about our rehabilitation program "The Road Home" below.

The Benefits of a Break

Short-term assisted living guests experience many of the services and amenities available to permanent residents. Sunrise Short-Term Stay seniors move into an attractive, furnished apartment and enjoy three delicious, well-balanced meals served daily in an elegant dining room, as well as snacks available throughout the day. Dedicated, well-trained team members are available 24-hours a day to provide personal assistance with daily needs, which may include bathing, dressing, personal hygiene, assistance with eating, mobility, medication management and more.

Respite Short-Term Senior Housing

Short-term senior residents may participate in any of our social, educational, devotional and recreational programming and activities, as well as scheduled group trips to local restaurants and stores. Their stay may coincide with the monthly wellness visit by a licensed nurse, and they can take advantage of our on-site beauty salon or barber shop.

Short-term stays are based on senior housing availability and the guest’s ability to meet the community’s admissions criteria. Temporary assisted living duration requirements vary by location, so please contact your local community for more information about senior housing through Sunrise respite care.

Respite Care Resources for Caregivers

Being a primary caregiver can sometimes seem overwhelming. Don’t be afraid to seek help or advice. Taking care of yourself, the caregiver, is just as important as taking care of your loved one. We’ve compiled these resources to help you provide the best possible care for yourself, as well as your loved one. Our senior resource counselors are here to provide you with valuable guidance and assistance whether you’re investigating short-term or long-term care options.
