Respite Care

Respite Care for Seniors

Respite care is an option for older adults looking for a short-term stay at a senior living community. Respite care can provide temporary relief to caregivers as needed and also gives individuals a glimpse into what life at that community might be like.

Respite care at Walker Methodist is offered in assisted living, memory care, and care suites, and offers a level of support tailored to each individual’s needs. Respite care is typically utilized for brief stays, such as when recuperation time is needed after surgery, or if a caregiver is going on vacation. Respite care is a great option for seniors who need a comfortable and caring place to stay temporarily.
