The Benefits of Short Term Respite Care

Many Enlivant communities offer convenient short-term respite care services with all of the personal benefits and amenities we provide our long-term residents.

You might consider short-term respite care when you need:

  • Extra assistance before returning home after a hospital stay
  • Continued short-term rehabilitation after a hip or knee replacement
  • A place to stay when an emergency has made your home unsafe or uninhabitable

A short-term respite care stay can also help you experience what an Enlivant community has to offer and see how you fit in with the residents who live there before you decide to become a full-time resident.

If you are a caregiver, you might also consider a respite stay when you need a break — whether it’s for work, a vacation, or just a much-needed breather — and you don’t want to leave a parent who is not fully independent.

Respite Care and Services

We begin each stay with a detailed evaluation to create an individualized care plan.  Our care includes nursing observation, assistance with activities of daily living (like dressing and bathing), medication management, scheduled transportation and much more.

We offer flexible dining options, providing healthy menus created with oversight from a registered dietician, and serving three meals and day and snacks in our community dining rooms.

We provide a range of engaging activities that bring together residents and staff and contribute to our lively, stimulating atmosphere.  We are committed to creating an environment where all residents can thrive. 

We define respite care as a stay of less than 30 days — after that, prevailing rates and a move-in fee will apply. Care and service levels may vary by Enlivant community.
