Assisted Living at NewBridge on the Charles offers respite to those interested in a short-term stay in either our Assisted Living or Memory Care Assisted Living residences. Respite residents enjoy fully furnished apartments and all the amenities and services provided to our full-time residents. The benefit to family members is peace of mind. The benefit to our respite residents is the support and security they need to live independently on a short-term basis.

Respite stays in Assisted Living and Memory Care Assisted Living are good options in many situations including:

Vacation Stays

Vacation respite stays can enable an elder to maintain their independence while visiting local family members or provide peace of mind while one’s caregivers travel or take time off.

Post-Rehab Stays

After a stay in rehab or a hospitalization, respite stays can offer elders an additional period of support before transitioning back home.

Dementia Caregiver Support

Caring for a loved one with dementia can limit one’s ability to travel or balance life’s other demands. Short-term stays in Memory Care Assisted Living offer caregivers the peace of mind necessary to attend to other areas of their life as well as a critical opportunity to refresh and recharge their own ability to provide care.

Trial Residency

Finding the right fit in an assisted living community is a challenging and important process. Respite stays allow potential residents and their families to truly experience the unique culture and energy of our community on a trial basis – including programming, staff, cuisine and services – before committing to a full-time lease.

Respite stays are based on apartment availability and minimum stays vary. The maximum stay is two months, with the option to then transition to full time residence. To learn more, please contact Ellie Belanger at 781-589-3091.
