Respite Care Services

Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too

When you’re providing care for your chronically ill, disabled, or elderly loved one, you are doing so because you care. You’re devoted to making sure your loved one receives the best quality of life possible and has everything he or she needs. This commitment is evidence that you are patient, generous, and compassionate, and you’d do anything to help your loved one.

Being a full-time caregiver for someone you love is a difficult job, and it’s very important to remember to also take care of yourself and your needs. When you neglect your own personal fulfillment and happiness, putting someone else’s needs before your own, it could lead to inadvertent consequences, including resentment. Resentment can become detrimental to your relationship with the one you’re caring for, and isn’t fair to you or your loved one. It’s important to remember your loved one cares about your happiness, too.

Remember to Be Yourself

It’s important to remember that being a caregiver is only part of who you are as a person. You have other needs and responsibilities in your life, including your career, other family and friends, and interests and hobbies, and it’s important not to neglect this part of your life. If you don’t take time for yourself, you could suffer from exhaustion, higher levels of stress, and even serious health problems.

Remember, it’s natural to crave time for yourself without feeling guilty. You deserve a break and the chance to refresh, relax, and recharge. This is a healthy balance, and can help enhance your relationship with the person you’re caring for. There are many benefits for both you and your loved one when you’re feeling happy and well rested. FirstLight Home Care of Asheville’s respite care services can help you take time for yourself without neglecting the needs of the loved one in your care.
