Respite Care at Vineyard Senior Living

Learn the Benefits of Respite Care

From time to time, residents may request a short-term stay due to temporary need or when their in-home caregivers or family are traveling. A respite stay is designed to fill that need, should it arise.

Think of respite care as a vacation for your loved one with personalized care options to suit their unique needs. Whether it be for a short-term stay in Assisted Living or in a Memory Care environment, respite residents will receive the support they need while also enjoying all the benefits of Vineyard Senior Living.

Respite care is perfect for caregivers planning travel or a vacation when they can’t bring their older loved one with them. They can enjoy time away while having peace of mind that their loved one is safe. As residents, they will have full access to all the amenities, activities and programs that our communities offer. They will stay in a fully furnished apartment, enjoy culinary-inspired meals, and take part in activities and socialization while also having access to proper care.

Respite care can also serve as a transition between a rehabilitation program and returning home. Additionally, if you’re considering a senior community for your loved one, this is the perfect way to “test drive” your nearest Vineyard location.
