Many assisted living and memory care communities will offer short term respite stay options to residents. Because of the flexibility, this can be a great option for families to consider. When it comes to a respite stay, here’s what you need to know:
WHAT IS IT?
A respite stay at an assisted living or memory care community is usually under 30 days. Respite rooms come furnished so there is no need to coordinate moving furniture/decorating the room. Think of it as staying in a hotel for a short term stay, but all meals, care, laundry, housekeeping, transportation and activities are included.
WHY DO A RESPITE STAY?
There are many reasons why a respite stay may be a great option, such as:
WHAT DOES IT COST?
You are charged an all-inclusive daily rate for a respite stay. So take the daily rate amount x number of days. As mentioned, all care and amenities are included in that rate. On average, we find respite rates usually $175-$250 per day.
