Our assisted living facility in Rhode Island provides loving care and we efficiently handle a wide range of senior requirements. If you are feeling overwhelmed and just need a break, we’ll be happy to look after mom and dad or any other elderly loved one.

Read the 3 main benefits of temporary respite care:

  • It prevents burnout: Care-giving is both physically and mentally demanding. We have seen it take a serious toll on many caregivers. Give yourself a break! The time-out will energize and refresh you. You will be able to provide better care when you return.
  • Offers an option in an emergency: If you have to attend to an urgent business or family matter, or undergo a medical treatment or procedure, respite care is the ideal option for your loved one. You’ll have peace of mind and can take care of the emergency without worrying about the tasks you usually attend to in caring for your parent.
  • You still have control: You might feel guilty about putting your loved one in respite care or worry about whether any of the assisted living facilities in Rhode Island will provide the attention you do. Remember that it’s only a temporary arrangement and you still have control over the kind of care they receive. Take the break you need and remain worry-free about your senior’s care.
