Sun City & Northwest Phoenix Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
You care for family members who are either elderly, chronically ill, or disabled, out of a state of pure love. The commitment you make to ensure he or she has everything they need to lead a quality life speaks volumes. It shows that you’re loving, benevolent, and caring. And that you’d climb over mountains in order to help someone you hold dear in your heart.
But have you stopped to consider your needs? The demands from a caregiving job are not for the faint of heart. If you’re caring for a loved one comes at the detriment of your own health, this could result in many unforeseen consequences. Failure to cultivate your own personal happiness and well-being can create resentment over time as you continue to place your own health second. Left unattended, this emotional resentment will brew and grow until it causes a once-great relationship to fall apart, becoming a tedious obligation. This is not fair to either parties who love each other so much. Remember, your loved one want’s too see that you’re happy too!

Remember to Be Yourself
Caregiving is only one aspect of who you are. If you forget to nurture other things that make up your life, your spouse, family, and friends, your hobbies, your career, you could be destined for trouble. Family caregivers who never take time away for themselves are prone to experience raised levels of stress, fatigue, and other serious health problems.
It’s healthy and natural to want time for yourself. Every person deserves a break; to step away from the weekly routine to relax, refresh, and re-energize. It helps strengthen the important relationships you enjoy most in life. After all, when you’re happier and healthier, both parties are better off. FirstLight’s respite care services, available to the communities of Peoria, Sun City, Sun City West, Surprise, and the Northwest Phoenix Valley, will help you find that missing “you” without compromising the quality of care and attention to detail your family member needs.
