Respite Care

What is Respite Care?

“Temporary care of a dependent elderly, ill, or handicapped person, providing relief for their usual caregivers.”

Our Respite Care Program (short-term stay) can be an ideal living situation for an older adult or disabled person who needs support with day-to-day tasks, even offering daily medical care as needed. Journey Senior Living of Merrillville offers board and care opportunities.  Respite Care provides temporary care for your loved one while providing relief for their usual caregivers and peace of mind for family members. During a respite stay, you or your loved one will receive the same amenities and services provided to full-time residents. Some exception may apply.


At Journey Senior Living of Merrillville, individuals can enjoy a safe, home-like environment without the work and worry that come with living on their own or with a caregiver. Our team provides the daily assistance our residents need, such as meal preparation, house-cleaning, medication monitoring and personal care, while maintaining a friendly and supportive community atmosphere. We work hard to ensure that no detail is overlooked and that each of our residents is treated with the respect, compassion and dignity he or she deserves.
