High-Quality Respite Care for Seniors

At Golden Age Residential Care, we understand how challenging it can be to be a full-time caregiver for a loved one. We also know that to effectively care for an elderly loved one’s well-being and avoid caregiver burnout, you must also care for yourself. That’s where respite care services come in.

What Is Respite Care?

You can think of respite care as a support system for caregivers.

A respite is a period of rest or relief. If you’re a primary caregiver who is regularly tending to the needs of your elderly loved one, respite care can give you a much-needed break. Our trained professionals take over your caregiving duties, so you can rest and return to your loved one refreshed—ultimately making you a better caretaker.

  • In-home Support: Our trained staff can come to your home and offer care in a familiar environment.
  • Assistance with ADLs: We help with activities of daily living like medication reminders and dressing.
  • Flexible Care Planning: However long you need respite care, we are there to provide support.

Our Approach to Respite Care

Respite care can take different forms depending on your needs. You may want short-term care on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis so that you can attend to personal needs, like going to the gym or shopping. You may need long-term respite care so you can travel or even take a staycation. Whichever is right for you, our caregivers at Golden Age Residential Care can help.

Home Care Services

Many seniors prefer to stay at home, where they are comfortable, rather than move to a full-time care facility. Our trained respite caregivers can come to your home and give your elderly loved one the necessary care. These services can include medical care, such as medication management, and personal care, such as grooming and feeding.

Our home respite care staff provides companionship, support, and may help with light housekeeping duties.

Out-of-Home Care Services

You have a few choices if you need respite care outside your home. The exact options will depend on the type of respite care that fits your loved one’s needs.

  • Adult Day Center: If your loved one needs extra support and could benefit from a program outside the home, our adult day center provides activities and care, giving you a free day to focus on your own self-care.
  • Camps and Retreats: Our retreat programs offer care to seniors away from home for a few days. As a caregiver, you can attend these retreats and spend time relaxing while staff care for your loved one.
  • Residential Facilities: At Golden Age Residential Care, we provide full-time care in our senior living community to care for your loved one in a safe, welcoming environment.

Finding Respite Care

When you start considering respite care to relieve some of the burden of being a primary caregiver, take some time to assess your needs. You can start with these questions:

  • Would you like to set up recurring respite care services or occasional relief?
  • How long do you need respite care services: hours, days, or weeks?
  • Do you need someone to come to your house to provide respite care, or would you prefer out-of-home services?
  • What is your budget?
