Short-Term Respite Care for Bedford Seniors

Here for you When you Need us

Moving from your long-time home to community living can be a major adjustment, and we want to make it as seamless as possible. At Bentley Commons, our flexible Respite Care program is an opportunity to try out the community, to get support while a caregiver is unavailable or needs a break, or to recover following a hospital stay.

What is Respite Care?

Most of our Respite Care community members stay with us for one of these three purposes:

  • To Trial Our Community
  • To Provide a Caregiver a Break
  • To Recover from Injuries or Surgery

We know moving is stressful. Trying out Bentley Commons at Bedford with a no-obligation short-term stay can help you decide if our apartments, community, support staff, and location make you feel at home. Whether you’re considering Optimal Living or Assisted Living, a short stay with us can give you peace of mind as you plan your next steps.

If your caregiver is going to be unavailable for two weeks or more, we can support you until their return. Our goal is to provide a seamless transition so your comfort and quality of life don’t see a single blip.

Respite Care can also be an important tool in avoiding caregiver burnout. We’re well aware of how hard caregivers work to provide loving attention. When burnout hits, it can reduce the quality of care they provide. Let us take the reins for a while so your caregiver can recharge and come back refreshed for you.

Recovery from an injury or illness can make daily tasks tougher—it’s something you shouldn’t have to worry about while your priority is returning to good health.

While you recover, we’ll monitor your health and get to know your unique needs so you can get back to feeling like yourself as soon as possible.


You’re a member of our community—even for the shortest of stays—and that means access to all of our services and amenities, including our gourmet dining and 24/7 caregiving support as needed. Some of our other services include:

  • Weekly housekeeping
  • Linen service
  • Round the clock maintenance services
  • Scheduled transportation services
  • Basic cable and wifi
  • Full service salon and barber shop
  • Concierge services
  • Emergency call system monitored 24 hours a day
