Short-term Respite Care
Short-term care, also referred to as respite care, is a living option for individuals needing temporary care in an assisted living facility. The reasons for short-term care vary greatly depending on the needs of the resident and caregiver, but regardless of the reason, respite residents receive the same care and opportunity as individuals receiving long-term care from PineCrest.
Short-term care helps to give both caregivers and residents peace of mind while receiving exceptional care. Situations arise when caregivers may not be able to provide the care their loved one needs. For example if a work trip comes up for a caregiver, leaving their loved one isn't always an option. For times like this, respite care can be very beneficial.
In addition to temporary services, short-term care provides an excellent way to introduce seniors to the benefits of an assisted living community. Short-term care allows future residents and their families to find the best living alternative for their particular needs and the time to "test the waters" at a certain community.
