What Is Respite Care for Seniors?

Encore at Avalon Park Assisted Living and Memory Care provides a world-class respite care program designed for caregivers that need to get away, unwind, and refresh.

Caring for an aging parent, elderly relative, or loved one with a debilitating illness or injury can be a challenging responsibility. Over time, it can take quite a toll on primary caregivers who selflessly sacrifice their time in service of another. In order to continue providing quality care, full-time caregivers must take time for themselves to get away, go on vacation, or just focus on themselves. Because of this, many adult healthcare facilities are offering respite care for seniors.

What is Respite Care?

Designed to give caregivers a break from the day-to-day tasks and stresses associated with constant care, respite care for seniors provides temporary relief to primary caregivers by assuming their responsibilities for a brief period of time. Whether it’s for an afternoon, over the weekend, or for several days or weeks, professional respite care can be arranged for seniors at home, in a healthcare facility, or at an adult day center.
