After a hospital or rehab stay, you may need more time to gain strength. If this is the case, a respite stay at a community might be the best option for you. Respite care is typically a short stay, which could last for a few weeks or a month. Typically, the room can come furnished, so all you have to do is focus on gaining strength or planning your next step. The staff at the community can help you with your daily tasks and can provide you with social activities. Also, a respite stay is a great way to test out how you or a loved one responds to living in a senior community.
