When To Use Respite Care

Respite care services provide temporary relief for family caregivers, allowing them to take time off without worrying about their loved one’s well-being. This type of care is also perfect for seniors who want to experience the benefits of an assisted living facility before committing to move in full-time.

Use our short-term services when:
  • A primary caregiver becomes ill
  • Family members need to travel for work
  • A family caregiver experiences burnout
  • Caregivers want to take a vacation
  • You want a chance to experience assisted living without commitment

What is Respite Care?

Respite care is a short-term stay option in an assisted living or memory care community. It’s designed to give family caregivers a break from their caregiving duties while ensuring their loved ones continue receiving care from professional caregivers.

Baxter Senior Living lets loved ones live in a resort-inspired community for a minimum stay of 30 days rather than in a nursing home facility.

  • Specialty care apartments tailored to specific care plans and needs, including high acuity and memory care

Are You Experiencing Caregiver Burnout?

We Alaskans are tough. But we’re not immune to the challenges of caring for a loved one. Caregiving can be rewarding, but it can also be physically and emotionally draining. You may be experiencing caregiver burnout if you’re feeling:

  • Overwhelmed
  • Stressed
  • Fatigued
  • Apathetic 
  • Depressed
  • Anxious

Using our respite care services before reaching your limit is an effective strategy to curb burnout. It allows you to take a step back, rejuvenate, and return to your caregiving duties with renewed energy and focus. You’re also better positioned to care for your loved one by taking care of yourself.

According to the Family Caregiver Alliance:

    • 17 percent of caregivers experience a decline in their health due to their caregiving responsibilities
    • 40 to 70 percent of family caregivers have symptoms of clinical depression
    • 38 percent of family caregivers find their situation highly stressful

Seeking help isn’t a sign of failure or weakness. It’s a proactive step towards ensuring you and your loved one receive the best possible care. Our Anchorage care team is here to help Alaska family members in need.
