What are Respite Stays for Older Adults?

Respite stays at senior living communities provide older adults the opportunity to stay as a guest, receive compassionate care, and enjoy the benefits of community life while their caregivers can take time off to rest and rejuvenate.

At select CLC communities, respite stays offer personalized assisted living or skilled nursing support and a vibrant, welcoming community life for up to three months. If you are a caregiver for an older adult family member or loved one, this enables you to prioritize your well-being and other responsibilities knowing that your loved one is safe, comfortable, and in good company. Respite stays can also be a great opportunity to trial a community to determine if it is a good fit for the future.

Benefits of Respite Stays for Caregivers

Taking time off from caregiving to prioritize your own well-being can both improve your ability to provide care for your loved one and help prevent burnout. With the peace of mind knowing your loved one is in good hands, you can run errands, take a much-needed vacation, make your own doctor appointments, or take time for self-care and rejuvenation.
