What is a respite stay? When is a respite stay appropriate? What should you expect when your loved one does a respite stay?
There are a few types of respite stays. Some are short-term stays because a caregiver is going away or needs a break. Other types are more of a trial stay in an assisted living. Respite stays can have great outcomes and, in this episode, Michelle, Alyson and Emily explore why.
Three key takeaways from this episode:
- A respite stay can be used as a short-term break for a family caregiver or as a trial stay to see if you like an assisted living or nursing home.
- Respite stays can be used to convince someone, who is otherwise resistant, to consider life in an assisted living. A temporary stay is much easier to agree to than a permanent one.
- A vast majority of our clients who move into an assisted living community for a respite stay, choose to stay permanently.
