What Is Respite Care?

Even if you’re familiar with the services a senior living community provides, you might not know what senior respite care entails. These programs involve short-term stays in a senior living community. These stays might take place while a caregiver is away or otherwise unable to care for their loved one. Or, some seniors choose respite care while recovering from a surgery or other medical procedure, during which they might need extra care.

In senior respite care programs, residents have access to all of the amenities of the senior living community. These might include upscale dining options, group activities, movie nights, outings to stores, and assisted living services.

The Summit is a luxurious, high-quality senior living community in Hockessin, DE. Residents in our community enjoy resort-style amenities, exciting activities and events, delicious meals, and so much more. In addition to senior respite care, we offer:
