What is Respite Care? | Five Star Senior Living
Respite Care & Short Term Stays

Respite Care & Short Term Stays


Respite Care / Short-term Stays are great for seniors when families travel out of town or simply need a break from the stresses of caregiving. They can also be a good option for those considering senior living and want to "try it out" before making a long-term commitment. Short-term stays allow residents to enjoy housekeeping services, community activities, dining, and all other amenities enjoyed by our permanent residents. In addition to the benefits of physical care, our short-term residents often make friendships that enrich life in a way that only connecting with others can. 

It’s Not How Long You Stay, It’s How Well You’re Treated
At Five Star Senior Living, we understand that there are a multitude of factors that necessitate short, temporary stays in a place that offers skilled nursing care and a warm, welcoming environment. We treat our respite care residents with the same compassion and commitment to service that we offer to our independent and assisted living residents. For respite and short stays, family members may have the following needs:
 
  • Family caregivers need a break or have travel plans
  • Seniors need supervised attention on a short-term basis
  • Seniors considering an independent or assisted living community may want to try out the experience for themselves
  • Seniors need adult day programs

Respite Care Services with All the Amenities
For seniors needing temporary care, whether for a week or a few months, Five Star offers an unusually rich mix of amenities, including community activities, exceptional dining, housekeeping services, and scheduled local transportation. We also, of course, deliver skilled nursing care and friendly assistance with daily living activities as needed – all the things that provide comfort to our residents and peace of mind to family members.

Serving Specific Needs: Adult Day Programs and Hospice
Select Five Star Senior Living communities also offer adult day care programs for seniors who need supervision and stimulation during the day while their primary caregiver is at work or otherwise occupied during daytime hours. Instead of staying at home alone, seniors can come to the senior living community and enjoy social interaction and recreational activities in a safe and supportive environment.

In addition, for seniors at the end of life and their families and loved ones, many Five Star communities offer compassionate counseling and hospice care, so residents can stay in comfortable, familiar surroundings during this difficult time.
