As people get older, the activities and daily tasks they once performed with ease become more difficult—especially when living alone. Rather than risk the chances of a slip and fall, malnutrition, or other complications, many senior citizens choose to reside in an assisted living community. In addition to providing independent living services, memory care, and other personal services, many senior living facilities also offer respite care. Check out this article for more information on respite care.
Traditional Respite Care If you’ve taken it upon yourself to be the primary caregiver for your aging parent, then you know how stressful and demanding it can be. Respite care is a service offered by assisted living facilities that allows familial caregivers to take a much-needed break from their everyday duties. By providing temporary care to senior citizens with or without specific medical needs, respite care helps family members and other caregivers to reduce their stress, restore energy levels, and take time for themselves.
Respite Resort Stay The respite care services offered by Carlton Senior Living give primary family caregivers a break from their duties. Carlton Senior Living even takes the idea of respite care a step further by offering a Respite Resort Stay program designed to provide immediate assistance to individuals following an emergency or hospital stay. Our program can be tailored to meet your loved one’s specific needs, and includes furnished apartments, an in-apartment kitchen option, memory care options, basic personal care services, and rapid move-ins.
