I am going on vacation soon, and need someone to fill in for me as my aunt's primary caregiver. What options do I have? I will only be away for 1 week.
respite, seniors, housing, home-care

What you are looking for is respite care. What type of respite care that is best would depend on your exact situation.
Respite care can be provided in the home, most large home care providers and home care agencies provide these temporary services.
There are also some limited housing options. Some facilities will accept residents who require room and board on a temporary basis. You must also, in most cases, meet their requirements and possibly completion of an assessment. Good luck!
