Senior woman in respite care.

Here at Regency Retirement Village in Jackson, TN, our assisted living community offers care services outside of the usual long-term housing many choose in later life. There are often situations in which seniors may find themselves in need of short-term stays or assistance as they recover from an injury, surgery, or illness and we are more than happy to help. Whether you or a loved one needs care for a short period of time or you would want to give a caregiver a break, we are here for you. If you’re looking for the right place for a short-term stay or respite care for seniors, consider making Riverwood your home away from home.

Family members know that entrusting others with the care of a senior loved one can be difficult. After all, no one can love and care for our loved ones better than we can. That being said, our specialty trained team at Regency has all the skills necessary to provide the highest quality of care possible, tending to the needs of our seniors as if they were our own family.  

What is Respite Care for Seniors?

Let’s face it, even the caregivers who help with you or your loved one’s daily routines need to take time away from their daily duties. It could be a vacation planned or other life/family obligations that take them from their caregiving duties. When this happens, respite care transfers a primary caregiver’s responsibilities to a professional caregiver such as a nurse or aide. For a myriad of reasons, seniors often need specialized care. Oftentimes after surgery, an injury, or illness, seniors may need care that falls outside of the expertise of their family or regular caregivers. Our team is happy to help in these situations. Regardless of the reason for the short-term stay, you can rest assured that you or your loved one will be in caring, capable hands at Regency Retirement Village.
