Short-term and respite care is available for your loved one at Inspired Living at Kenner, a luxury resort-style community that serves Kenner, Metairie, and the greater New Orleans areas. Read on to learn more about respite and temporary care, and why you should choose Inspired Living at Kenner for your family’s needs.
What is Respite Care and Why Might I Use it?
Respite care is temporary assistance provided by a third party to relieve a primary caregiver. Gen X and Millennial caregivers juggle the responsibilities of a career and raising a family on top of an average of 22.3 hours of providing care. As a result of these competing priorities, they may need to seek short-term care options for their loved ones to go on an extended business trip or a vacation with their spouse and children. Older caregivers may need assistance while they undergo a medical procedure or recover from an illness. Sometimes, providing daily care can be so overwhelming that a primary caregiver simply needs a break. According to a study conducted by the AARP Public Policy Institute in 2020, one in five Americans are providing care to another adult, and one in four are providing care to more than one. Know that you are not alone—no matter your reason for seeking temporary or respite care, Inspired Living at Kenner can step in to help. Seniors who live independently can also benefit from temporary or short-term care by choosing a facility such as Inspired Living at Kenner to assist with their recovery from injury or surgery.
