What is a Respite Stay?

When space is available, Kensington-Evergreen communities offer respite stays. A respite stay is a short-term (non-permanent) stay that could range from a few days to a few weeks to a few months!

People choose this option for several reasons. First, it’s great following a medical procedure before a transition back home. Second, it’s great for seniors whose family members may be providing close care, but need to work, travel or take a break from providing care. It’s also a wonderful way to try senior living on for size! A short stay allows you to try out living as a resident of our community before you commit to a long-term decision.

All short term guests benefit from our homelike communities and get personalized attention from our caring staff. The price of a respite stay can vary based on community, but generally averages around $250 per 24-hour period. The cost includes home cooked meals, snacks, life-enriching activities and outings. If enhanced care (such as one-one-one care) or transportation to appointments is needed, additional costs may apply. For short stays, a furnished apartment can be provided. For longer stays, our community may be able to move your own bedroom furniture for free! Respite stays in a Kensington-Evergreen community are based on space and availability.
