Independent Living Options for Seniors
What are the benefits of Independent Living Communities for Seniors?
For many seniors, staying independent is of utmost importance. Some feel that if they rely on others to do everything for them, that they will cease to exist.

Find Respite Care
What is Respite Care for Seniors?
Respite care is short term care for a senior. Whether in a community or at home, care is provided on a temporary basis while a caretaker is on vacation or indisposed due to surgery or illness.
Respite care can be a lifesaver for caregivers needing a break from the physical and mental demands and the stress of care giving! Caregivers can rest knowing that their loved one is well taken care of. This is also a great option if you and your loved one are considering full-time help or a move. This is a great way to test the waters. Per Wikipedia, respite has been shown to help sustain family caregiver health and well being, avoid or delay out-of-home placements, and reduce the likelihood of abuse and neglect. An outcome based evaluation pilot study shows that respite may also reduce the likelihood of divorce and help sustain marriages.
As a caregiver, with the financial resources, respite care is a highly recommended way to get a mental and physical break from the rigors of taking care of a loved one. You should not feel guilty about needing a break, as long as you are confident in the quality of the respite care provider.
Several nursing homes, assisted living communities, home care providers, and hospitals offer respite care, but not all, so check with a provider (and their listing) for availability, offers and fees. Some also consider adult day care a type of respite care since care is offered during a specific time period on certain days. Some providers offer this service as a way to bring in clients full-time. Let them know if you will be considering more care or a move in the future, as an assisted living or personal care provider may be able to make the visit a trial, and cut fees. Some providers do not normally offer short-term stays, but they may do so in a bad economy. It’s worth asking!

The New LifeStyles Story
While looking for care in the Dallas area for his mother, Les Blaser realized there weren't any reliable sources of information on senior housing available. He then started a small newsletter for Dallas area hospitals listing the nursing homes in the Dallas area. The idea blossomed into the first New LifeStyles guide, published in 1987 for Dallas, TX. Les and his wife Renee, then started working on other Texas area guides including Ft. Worth, then on to Southern California. Thirty years later, we publish 24 guides for metropolitan areas in the U.S.
New LifeStyles guides are complimentary to the public and distributors. They can be ordered at www.NewLifestyles.com or by calling 800-869-9549.
