What is Short-Term Respite Care?

Short-term respite care is a temporary stay at a senior living community. Short-term respite care is often suggested for seniors who are recovering from a hospital visit, fall, surgery or other health circumstance, but is also available for caregiver vacations, senior living trial periods or any other reason. Respite services can be offered for a variety of care levels, including assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing, depending on the short-term respite care provider’s capabilities.
