Family members know that entrusting others with the care of a senior loved one can be difficult. After all, no one can love and care for our loved ones better than we can. That being said, our specialty trained team at Regency Birmingham has all the skills necessary to provide the highest quality of care possible, tending to the needs of our seniors as if they were our own family.
What is Respite Care for Seniors?
When the caregiver in your life is in need of time off, whether it’s a weeklong vacation or a longer break to take care of their own family obligations, respite care will give you or your loved one peace of mind, since it is a way to transfers a primary caregiver’s responsibilities to another person, (most often a professional caregiver such as a nurse or aide). For a myriad of reasons, seniors often need specialized care. Oftentimes after surgery, an injury, or illness, seniors may need care that falls outside of the expertise of their family or regular caregivers. Our team is happy to help in these situations. Regardless of the reason for the short-term stay, you can rest assured that you or your loved one will be in caring, capable hands at Regency Birmingham.
