What is Short Term Respite Care?

Respite care provides temporary short-term relief for primary caregivers, enabling you to take a much-needed break from the demands of caregiving a sick, aging or disabled family member. It can be arranged for just a day, a week or an extended vacation. Seeking respite care can help ease the burden of family caregiving and help to relieve stress, restore your energy and promote balance in your life. Respite care can also benefit the person you’re caring for, too. 

At Our House Senior Living, a respite stay is charged by the day. Usually, most insurance plans do not cover these costs. 

Reasons to Use Respite Care

  • Extended Vacation
  • Recovery from a Hospital Stay or Medical Procedure
  • Caregiver Needs to Help Another Family Member in Need
  • Caregiver Needs a Break

Most of the individuals who come to stay with us for a short-term respite stay, come to stay with us after a hospital stay or medical procedure. This ensures that they are healing properly and receiving 24/7 care. 

What Type of Care Will My Loved One Receive?
