Respite Care Atlanta, GA
We Offer Respite Care, Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
At FirstLight Home Care Atlanta, we admire family caregivers like you who make the commitment to care for their ill or elderly loved ones. We believe that it demonstrates a tremendous amount of generosity, selflessness, and love. As a caregiver, we know that you go above and beyond the call of duty each and every day.
Caregiving is a physically and emotionally taxing job. The natural inclination among family caregivers is to neglect their own personal happiness and physical health for the sake of their loved one. Unfortunately, this can lead to resentment and other unintended consequences, which can affect your relationship with your family member and your ability to be an effective caregiver. By taking some time to focus on your needs, happiness, and fulfillment, both you and your loved one will be happier.
What Is Respite Care?
FirstLight’s respite care program is designed to provide family caregivers with time away from their responsibilities to relax, recharge, and focus on their personal needs. You can schedule our elderly care services for as little as one hour a week, for an entire day, or even longer if needed. We are happy to provide respite care on either a one-time or recurring basis as needed. You can rest assured that our professional caregivers will be on hand to see to all of your loved one’s needs. Our Atlanta respite care services are also available to adults of any age who require assistance.

Remember to Be Yourself
You should not let your role as caregiver overshadow everything else that makes you who you are. You still need time to devote to your role as spouse, parent, and friend and to explore hobbies and interests that make life more enjoyable. You may also have career obligations outside of the home that require your attention. Family caregivers who neglect these aspects of their lives often suffer from physical exhaustion, increased stress, and even health problems.
You should never feel guilty about needing some time to yourself away from your caregiving duties. Getting a break from your everyday routine will leave you feeling happier and healthier so that you can return to caring for your loved one with renewed energy. You may even find that allowing time for yourself will strengthen your bond with your loved one. FirstLight’s respite care and elderly care services in Atlanta allow you to take that much-needed break with the confidence of knowing that your family member will still receive the quality care and attention that they need and deserve.
