Our assisted living community offers a scope of care services outside of just the long term housing many choose in later life. There are many cases in which seniors may find themselves in need of short term stays or assistance as they recover from an injury, surgery, or illness, and we are more than happy to help. Whether you or your loved one needs care for a short period of time or to give a caregiver a break, our team is here for you.
If you’re looking for the right place for a short term stay or respite care for seniors, consider making Regency Huntsville your home away from home.
For family members, entrusting others with the care of a senior loved one can be difficult. After all, no one can do it like you can. That said, our specialty trained team at Regency has the skills necessary to provide the highest quality of care possible, tending to the needs of our seniors as if they were our own family.
What is Respite Care for Seniors?
Respite care is defined as the transfer of primary caregiving responsibilities to another person, often a professional caregiver, to get temporary relief from those duties. There are many reasons for seeking this type of care, and could be to accommodate something as simple as a vacation or reprieve for the caregiver or family member. Everyone needs a break now and then. Maybe you need time to travel, or need to get special training for a job, or even just to attend a wedding or other engagement.
Another common reason for short term stays in assisted living is a senior needing specialized care. Sometimes after a surgery, injury, or illness, seniors may need care that falls outside of the expertise of their family member or regular caregiver. Our team is happy to help in these situations too. Regardless of the reason for short term stay, you can rest assured that you or your loved one will be in caring and capable hands at Regency Huntsville.
