Respite with Sunset Communities

Caring for a loved one at home can be rewarding, but it can also be overwhelming. Everyone needs a break. Respite care can provide family members with a temporary rest from caregiving, with piece of mind that their loved one continues to receive care at home or in a safe environment.

Respite at Brookcrest

Brookcrest offers the option to stay for at least a week or more. Overnight care allows the family caregiver to take an extended break or vacation while your loved one stays in a supervised, safe environment. The cost for these services varies and is usually not covered by insurance or Medicare.

Respite with Sunset Home Services

Sunset Home Services can provide short respite breaks within your own home. Our caregivers can stay for as little as 1-2 hours. In-home care services offer a range of options including:

  • Companion services to the individual with socialization and supervised activities
  • Personal care or home health aide services to provide assistance with bathing, dressing, toileting and exercising
  • Homemaker services to help with laundry, shopping and preparing meals
  • Skilled care services to help with medication and other medical services
