      What are Respite Stays?

      Respite stays are temporary, short-term stays that are generally breaks for caregivers where their loved ones stay in a care facility for a designated period. These stays can range from a few days to several weeks, providing caregivers with the opportunity to take time off to rest, attend to personal matters, or simply recharge.

      A Respite Stay also allows the senior care recipient to become more comfortable in a community-based environment and can be very helpful if a senior is considering a care facilty or senior community but hesitant about the decision.

      General Info About Skilled Nursing Homes

      What Is Long Term Skilled Nursing?

      A Skilled Nursing Facility is a health-care institution that has available nursing care 24 hours a day, the supervision of the care of patients by a physician, the capability to store and dispense drugs, and which meets federal criteria for Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement.

      A Nursing Home may be needed for someone who no longer can live at home safely and requires 24-hour care that may not be medical in nature. Help can be provided including assistance with bathing, dressing, eating, medications, and other activities of daily living (ADLs).

      Skilled Nursing Home Insurance Options

      Long-Term Care Insurance

      Long-term care insurance typically covers the costs associated with nursing home care. Long-term care insurance policies are designed to help offset the expenses of such care, which can be significant. Long-term care insurance policies often have coverage limits, which may be specified as a daily or monthly benefit amount or a maximum lifetime benefit. It's important to ensure that the policy's coverage limits are sufficient to cover the costs of nursing home care in your area. You can learn more about that here.

      Veterans Aid & Attendance Benefit

      Although Veterans Aids & Attendance can go toward the cost of Nursing Home residency and care, it would not likely be sufficient to cover all of the costs. There is more information about that here.


      If a senior needs nursing home care but does not have sufficient funds to pay for it, then that individual can apply for Medicaid. Medicaid is a joint federal and state program in the United States that provides healthcare coverage to eligible low-income individuals and families. It is the largest source of health coverage for low-income Americans. Medicaid covers a wide range of medical services including doctor visits, hospital stays, prescription drugs, and long-term care. Eligibility for Medicaid varies by state but generally includes low-income adults, children, pregnant women, elderly individuals, and people with disabilities. You can learn more about that here.
