Respite care is defined as temporary care of a dependent elderly person. It is usually requested when the family or caregiver for a dependent elderly individual leaves town or is otherwise unable to provide care and needs short-term, temporary supervision and care to be provided for their elderly dependent.
Our respite care services can be scheduled for a minimum of two weeks and a maximum of several months and provides:
Three delicious chef-prepared meals per day
Light housekeeping and linen changing
Access to all activities and social outings
And much more!
