Bethesda’s short-term or respite stays provide temporary housing and care in a furnished assisted living apartment. We provide caregivers with a safe environment for their loved ones while they are away for business or vacation—or just need a break from the physical demands, stress and challenges of caregiving.
All the Benefits of Assisted Living
Respite services are ideal for people who want to try out our community without a long-term commitment—but who may want to transition to permanent assisted living. Our respite services also provide a great option for seniors recuperating from a recent hospital stay or illness who need temporary care from a qualified team.
Physical Care, Social Connections
We strive to offer as much autonomy as possible while providing a strong safety net and supervision to meet the needs and preferences of each resident. Assistance ranges from medication management and arrangement of medical appointments, to simple assistance with dressing and bathing.
In addition to physical care, our residents enjoy a great deal of social interaction. Whether it’s shared meals at our restaurant-style dining rooms, games to keep their minds active or one of our many extracurricular activities, Bethesda residents maintain an active social life to nourish them body and soul.
We offer personal care services, enriching activities and wellness programs to promote senior independence and quality of life. We focus on an active lifestyle, and our team serves as caregivers and advocates for seniors by providing an environment that allows our residents to thrive.
