What is respite care?
Respite care is a short-term stay with support provided. Respite stays are often hosted at senior living communities, which are specially designed to keep seniors safe and cared for.
These stays can be short or long, depending on the caregiver’s or senior’s needs. For instance, a caregiver might:
• Need time to rest and refresh
• Require time to take care of their own home or health
• Have an upcoming vacation or trip
• Need time to focus on their family
Or, it’s also possible their loved one would simply benefit from some additional professional support.
Where can I find respite care?
If you search local senior living communities, some may offer respite care services. These services can vary in offerings, as well as price, availability, minimum days required, and care services. When considering respite care, be sure to ask all your questions upfront while considering your and your loved one’s needs.
At Westminster Place, we would be happy to assist you, so please do not hesitate to reach out if you’d like more information or to schedule a visit.
What types of respite care services are available?
How many hours of respite care are allowed?
This answer may vary depending on who is paying for it or how long respite care may be needed, but at Westminster Place, families can enjoy respite care for a few days to several weeks or even months if need be. Be sure to talk with your community of choice to learn more about respite stay requirements.
Does Medicare pay for respite care?
If respite care is part of your loved one’s care, Medicare may pay some of the fees associated with care. Respite care covered by Medicare must be provided at a Medicare-approved facility, and you may be responsible for some of the balance.
Qualifications may be different, so reach out to your loved one’s doctor or a professional to determine coverage.
