Respite Stays

Unique to Friends Home in Kennett is our Give it a Try Stay  

These short-term, respite stays are available in each level of care. Respite Care is available at a lowered cost from 8 days to 4 weeks without a commitment. A furnished room or apartment is provided, and guests receive the same amenities of meals, laundry, housekeeping and security as residents.

For older adults who live with their children, who need some care in their own homes, or choose not to stay alone, short-term stays can help support independence. Children or caregivers may need to take care of their own medical needs, to take a vacation, or to rest after providing around the clock care. Respite stays may last a few days to a few weeks, and sometimes result in an individual moving here permanently. 

  • Minimum of only eight (8) days
  • Convenient option when planned or unforeseen circumstances require a temporary separation from your loved one
  • Available for every level of care and allow caregivers peace of mind when they are called away, or if they just need a short break from caregiving.
