How Respite Care Can Help Families Determine if Assisted Living is the Right Fit

Deciding if the time is right for your loved one to make the move to an assisted living community can be difficult for any family. Finding the right community and getting everyone on the same page, including your loved one, can be equally as challenging. An often overlooked opportunity to help this process is using Respite Care as a way for your loved one to experience first-hand the benefits of life within the community. At Clark, we offer potential residents the option of being part of our vibrant Clark community through a short-term Respite Care stay.

What is Respite Care?

Respite Care is a temporary stay – usually a week or more – in an assisted living or memory care community. While a Respite Care stay is typically used to provide relief for family caregivers, it is also a great opportunity for your loved one to experience the care, social engagement, and life enrichment activities provided by highly trained Clark staff.

How Respite Care Works

Families interested in Respite Care meet with our knowledgeable team to discuss your loved ones needs and determine the length of stay. Once the Respite Care stay is scheduled and your loved one arrives, our caring staff works to provide a seamless transition for your loved one’s “holiday” at Clark. They’ll stay as a resident in one of our furnished suites and enjoy Clark’s many activities and amenities including:

  • Personal care
  • Medication management
  • A calendar filled with activities
  • Opportunities to socialize
  • On-site Primary Medical Care
  • Spiritual care
  • Hair and nail salon
  • And so much more

Moving to Clark with Confidence

While making a transition to an assisted living community naturally comes with many emotions, a Respite Care stay can make the transition a very positive one. Your family can be confident in knowing that Clark is the right community for your loved one after a Respite Care stay. The experience can also ease your loved one’s worries and they can instead look forward to the many perks of living at Clark!
