Respite Care

As a caregiver, spending time away from the loved one you take care of may be necessary from time to time. Your loved one will be welcomed to the Parker at McCarrick or Parker at Monroe communities and treated like a member of the family. He or she will engage in fun activities while enjoying the company of peers. You will experience peace of mind while your loved one enjoys a stimulating and supportive environment.

The benefits of respite care are:
  • Peace of mind for a caregiver who is traveling
  • A healthy break for the caregiver, which reduces stress from the demands of caregiving
  • Your loved one will engage in activities that support physical, mental and cognitive abilities
  • We offer a stimulating and enriching environment where your loved one will enjoy socializing with peers
  • Respite care is also beneficial for people who have been discharged from a hospital or rehab program but may still need assistance before going home
  • We are flexible--your loved one may stay with us for as little as a week or as long as a month
