We’re Here When you Need Us!

When you need short-term, temporary care for a loved one, you can count on La Posada.  We have the facility, staff, and services conducive to a successful respite stay.  Respite care can be a few days, weeks, or months.

We understand that being a full-time caregiver is a demanding job, both physically and emotionally.  The continuous demands of someone with special needs can take its toll.  Let us give you the break you deserve.

Why Respite Care?

There are a number of reasons people seek respite care.  Families who are caring for a loved one with a severe disability, chronic, or terminal illnesses often need a break. Parents with disabled or ill children may also need respite care.  No matter the need, you can count on our facility for your respite stay.

Benefits of Respite Care

Respite care provides a short-term break that is essential for all involved.  Some common benefits include:

  • Relief of Stress – Everyone needs a break, even if it is just for a short time. Taking a break from care allows one to recharge and restore their energy.
  • Restore Balance in your Life – Your life does not need to stop because you are caring for another. Taking time to keep your life in order will give you peace of mind. 
  • Being a Better Caregiver – If you become overwhelmed by caring for another, you’re at risk for issues like depression, guilt, anger, sleep disorders and strained relationships.
  • Be Healthier – Taking a break is necessary for mental and physical health. A frequent and regular break will prevent both health and stress issues.
