That being said, our specialty trained team at Regency has all 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 transfers a primary caregiver’s responsibilities to another person, (most often a professional caregiver such as a nurse or aide) granting the everyday caregiver temporary relief from those duties. There are many reasons for seeking this type of care. Perhaps a caregiver has a vacation planned or other life/family obligations take them from their caregiving duties. For a myriad of reasons, seniors often need specialized care. Oftentimes after surgery, an injury, or illness, seniors may need care that falls outside of the expertise of their family or regular caregivers. Our team is happy to help in these situations. Regardless of the reason for the short-term stay, you can rest assured that you or your loved one will be in caring, capable hands at Regency Retirement Village.
