What is Senior Respite Care?
You may already be familiar with the types of services offered by a senior living community; but you might not know exactly what senior respite care encompasses. Such a program is comprised of short-term stays within a senior living community. It is beneficial when there is no caregiver present to care for loved one for whatever reason. It may also be for seniors who specifically choose respite care while in recovery after undergoing a surgery or other medical procedure which needs them to be under close supervision.
In senior respite care programs, residents are given ready access to all the amenities offered by the senior living community. These facilities may include group activities, fine dining options, movie nights, assisted living services, outings to stores, and more.
Caregiving requires full dedication and can be considered a full-time job. With senior respite care, you are given a chance to continue caring for your loved one after having taken a rest. At Discovery Village At The West End, you can have peace of mind knowing that your loved one is in good hands while you are away. Your loved one will be cared for by our trained team members.
