Serra Sol Memory Care in San Juan Capistrano is proud to offer respite stays, providing individuals with a short-term, non-permanent stay option ranging from a few days to a few weeks or even a few months. Respite stays are a flexible and beneficial choice for a variety of situations. Memory care residents (and their families) can benefit greatly from respite stays. Respite stays are based on space and availability.
Why Choose a Respite Stay?
We see two major benefits for a respite stay at Serra Sol Memory Care.
The first is the relief and peace of mind a respite stay can offer to family caregivers. Respite stays are an ideal option for seniors with memory loss whose family members are their primary caregivers but need to take a break from providing care for a number of reasons. A caregiver may have work or other family commitments, travel plans, their own health issues to address or may even just require a break from providing care. Knowing that your loved one with memory loss has a safe and secure place to stay under the care of trained professionals is invaluable. Serra Sol ensures your loved one’s well-being and provides the necessary care during their stay.
The second is the opportunity to try memory care before committing long-term. For those thinking about a permanent move to senior living, a respite stay offers a wonderful opportunity to dip your toe in the water. Residents can experience life as a resident of our community and caregivers can witness whether Serra Sol is a good fit – it’s win/win scenario.

The cost of a respite stay at Serra Sol can vary depending on the length of stay and specific care required. On average, it ranges from $250-$350 per 24-hour period, based on an individual’s needs.

During a respite stay, residents can enjoy a furnished apartment provided by our community. For longer stays, participants have the option to bring their own furniture, making it a comfortable and personalized experience. We’ll even move it in for you!
What is the Ideal Length of a Respite Stay?
Because it often takes time for a resident to adjust to a new environment and for us to truly get to know your loved one, we suggest a 1-2 week minimum for a respite stay. However, our community is flexible and always willing to discuss your specific needs.
