Everyone deserves a break. Caregiving can be demanding. Respite care can help you as a caregiver by providing a new, short-term environment or time to relax for a while. It’s a good way for you to take time for yourself. Remember respite care can benefit both the caregiver and their loved ones.
It’s normal to need a time to relax, which is why our respite care serves families and caregivers who require short-term, alternative care for loved ones due to:
- Weather disasters
- Emergency situations
- Other unexpected circumstances
What to Expect During the Unexpected
During respite stays, short-term residents will live in fully-furnished apartments; nursing care residents are assigned an open bed. All respite care residents will receive required care and enjoy the same access within the community as full-time residents, including:
- Opportunities to participate in social outings and activities
- Three daily meals
- Full use of the facility
- Linen / laundry services.
The Parks Senior Living also provides convenient access to local transportation for personal errands, appointments and other needs in the Odessa, Texas area.
Respite care acceptance requires that prospective short-term residents and families meet the appropriate standards and criteria for a respite stay. A minimum length of stay is required; acceptance is also based upon availability of space within the community
