If you are a caregiver for a parent or other loved one, you might wonder what to do if you have to go away for a few days or are planning a vacation. Or maybe your loved one has an upcoming medical procedure, and they will need additional support as they recover. If this is the case, consider senior respite care at one of our Discovery Village locations. We are located across the country and provide high-quality care for seniors on both a short and long-term basis.

What is Senior Respite Care?
Senior respite care involves a short-term stay in a senior living community. This stay might be a form of relief for primary caregivers who are going away or will otherwise be unavailable for a time. Some seniors need assistance at home on a daily basis. If their caregiver is unable to care for them for several days, they can arrange for respite care in a senior living community. These stays could last for a few days or a few weeks. Respite care provides peace of mind for the caregiver as well as giving the senior opportunities to interact with others. In many senior living communities, there are opportunities for group activities.
You also might choose respite care for your loved one if they are recovering from a surgery, a joint replacement procedure, stroke, or another medical event. Recovering from a medical event can require more care than can be provided in-home.
Caregiving can be a full-time job. Senior respite care provides relief so that you can continue caring for your loved one in the future with renewed energy. At Discovery Village, your loved one will be in the care of trained, experienced team members. They’ll enjoy our on-site amenities, meals cooked from scratch, and 24/7 medical care.
