Respite Care at Faith-based Senior Living Communities
Caregiving is demanding. Respite care can help.
Providing daily care to someone you love can be a demanding, full-time job. Add in other responsibilities like a career and children, and being a caregiver can become overwhelming. Respite care at Benedictine Living Communities provides caregivers with an opportunity to take a break from the demands of daily care. It’s also available to provide care for your loved one after a hospital stay or during an illness, or to provide support when you need to travel.
In our faith-based senior living communities, we provide genuine, compassionate senior health care, giving you the opportunity to attend to other needs and responsibilities while having the assurance of knowing your loved one is receiving the highest-quality care and attention. Whether the need is for a few hours, a few days or longer, respite care at a Benedictine Living Community can give you the peace of mind you need to catch your breath.
What is respite care?
Respite care is short-term care designed to give primary caregivers a break from the 24/7 demands of caring for a loved one who is sick or disabled. Depending on the caregiver’s needs, care can be arranged for as little as a few hours or a few days in one of our Adult Day centers. Overnight stays can also be arranged in one of our residential care communities with a minimum stay of two weeks. In addition, care can be provided in the individual’s home.
What is included in respite care?
Professional caregivers provide short-term, round-the-clock care in a comfortable, secure environment. Meals, housekeeping and social opportunities are typically included. Some services, such as medication management or therapy may incur an additional fee. Request details when you visit the community.
Will Medicare cover respite care?
Medicare provides limited coverage for respite care when an individual is receiving hospice services. For more information, visit the Medicare website.
