Respite Care Means Help for Caregivers

Caring for a senior loved one, even a highly independent one, can be a demanding job, no matter how much love you share. When you pair those demands with work, kids, pets, travel, and everything else a younger adult may have to deal with, there will be times when you need a break and some help.

Caregivers need care, too.

You may feel like you’re alone caring for your elderly parent or loved one, but you’re not. It can seem impossible to find someone you trust enough to take care of your loved one while you attend to other important things in your life, but you can. Give yourself and your senior respite, with our help.

Caring for your loved ones is what we do, and you can depend on us to do it well.

Providing high-quality respite care is one of our fundamental services. We can step in to carry the load when you need a break or some extra help, whether for planned time away or in an emergency.

We would love to welcome your loved one for a stay at Fairhaven, whether it’s for a few days, a few weeks, or a few months. You can feel confident knowing our compassionate staff will provide the same level of care for him or her that we would for any of our long-term residents.

If you’d like to plan a respite stay for your loved one, or if you’d just like to get to know us better in case a need arises in the future, get in touch. We’re happy to answer all of your questions.
