Respite is generally a stay that is a minimum of 7 days at the community while a resident's family goes out of town or may need a break from being a caregiver to a loved one. Adult Day Care is a stay that might be for a few hours out of a day to give families a break to run errands or take care of personal needs and be worry free that their loved one is being taken care of.
Independent living is for individuals that are active and do not need assistance with personal care. Residents generally are able to make their own meals, do their housekeeping, laundry, come and go through the community independently and are looking for social benefits of a senior living community.
