Benefits of respite care for families and seniors

There are a number of noteworthy advantages in this for caregiving families:

Other types of short stays at Calgary retirement communities


Closely related to respite care stays, and sometimes referred to interchangeably, convalescent care stays are another form of short term senior care. A convalescent care stay in a retirement home is an ideal solution for anyone 55 and older, who is recovering from surgery, or otherwise post-operative. In the same vein as respite care above, this offers professionally trained nursing staff in an environment peopled by friendly peers, with meals and social opportunities on hand. 

Trial stays 

Seniors who want a look at nearby retirement communities from inside can take a one or two week trial run at a Calgary retirement community. This gives you a taste of what it’s like to have someone take care of laundry, meal prep and other things you’d rather live without. More importantly, you get a sense of the community’s life, its daily rhythms, and the camaraderie of peers. Learn more, and find Calgary communities listed, in our fuller look at trial-stays.

Guest stays

Family members and others can also take guest stays at many of the communities listed above. This is an ideal solution for people visiting from out of town. Residents of retirement homes are encouraged to invite friends and family to stay in communities’ guest suites. This is a great way to spend time together, make your own trial stay, and take part firsthand in the oft-astonishing accoutrements and amenities available in the high quality retirement communities listed above.
