What is Respite Care?


Respite care is a form of temporary care for older adults in Barrie. It is a way to provide respite for caregivers.


Providing care for older adults is a full-time commitment. Whether you are a family member or professional caregiver, it can mean you spend more time taking care of your loved ones and less time spending quality time with them. Respite care for seniors allows caregivers the break they can sometimes need.


Livita Barrington offers short-term care services for older adults. Experience high-quality amenities and services, along with comfortable, well-furnished suites. Learn more about our respite services by giving us a call today.


Types of Respite Care

  1. In-Home Respite Care


This is a type of respite care service done in your own home. Professional caregivers go to the home to provide whatever form of care or service you need.


  1. Adult Day Centres


When you need respite for a few hours or the whole day, these non-residential centres are perfect. They offer respite care programs daily, providing meals, activities, and more.


  1. Residential Facilities


These are respite care services offered usually at Barrie retirement homes. Older adults can stay for days, weeks, or even months in a residential setting. They have their own suite and experience a structured environment with 24/7 support. There are amenities and services that they can enjoy, including daily meals, activities, and more.


Why Choose Respite Care in Barrie?


Respite care is a great option for older adults in Barrie. Active seniors looking to move into a retirement community can experience first-hand what it is like. You can get to know the amenities and services and see if they fit your needs. You also get a feel for the environment in a social setting.


Those needing emergency temporary care can also take advantage of short-term stays. Emergencies are inevitable. Respite care gives you the confidence that your or your loved one’s needs are taken care of.


Respite care is also an ideal living arrangement during the winter season. Barrie winters can be a challenge, especially when maintaining a home. It provides a safe and comfortable place to be during the winter season.


Lastly, it is a way for caregivers to recharge and come at their responsibilities with fresh zeal.
