2Sisters Speak: Surviving the Sandwich Generation – Episode 32


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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. A vast majority of our clients who move into an assisted living community for a respite stay, choose to stay permanently.
