Respite Care/Temporary Stays
Respite Care & Temporary Stays
Respite or temporary stays are for people that need a short term stay in an assisted living or memory care community. Generally, a respite stay can be for several days up to several months. Unlike when a person moves permanently into an assisted living, as a respite or temporary resident you do not pay a move in or community fee, and you pay a daily rate rather than a monthly rate. Some reasons to consider a respite stay are:
- Your loved one is in the hospital or a rehab and is going to be discharged home, and you are not ready or don’t feel that it is safe.
- Your loved one is in the hospital or a rehab and cannot be discharged home, but you need time to gather information before making a move that is permanent.
- A caregiver has a planned surgery or trip away and will not be available to provide care.
- A caregiver has an emergency and can suddenly no longer provide care and needs immediate help.
- Your loved one would like to try a place out and see if they like it before they commit.
- A caregiver is overwhelmed and stressed and needs a break.
Respite stays can be arranged a few days to weeks in advance and range between $125 to $250 per day. At Crossroads, we can quickly determine which communities would be able to provide the level of care a person needs and then determine which ones have a respite room available. This greatly reduces time and stress in an already stressful situation.
