Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
At FirstLight Home Care, serving the Northwest Boston communities of Meford, Winchester, Lexington, and surrounding areas, we take the responsibility of in home care seriously. We know the struggle of caring for an elderly, disabled, or sick family member. It can be overwhelming for an individual to try and provide all the necessary in home care. Often times, it leads to people sacrificing their own well-being to support a family member. Doing so can have negative impact on both the caregiver’s health and the quality of care they can offer.
Nothing can replace the care you can give to your loved one. You’re a very compassionate and patient individual, but nobody can do it all alone. Trying to handle the responsibilities of caregiving without a break could impact your health and create feelings of resentment. This will impact the quality of care you’re able to provide. Don’t forget about your needs! That’s why FirstLight offers respite care throughout the communities of Medford, Winchester, and Lexington.
What Is Respite Care?
Respite care is an in home care service designed to supplement the care you give. Our care services allow you to step away from your responsibilities, without sacrificing your loved one’s well-being. The professional caregivers at FirstLight are available on a daily, nightly, or round the clock basis. We’ll work with you to ensure a continuation of care for your loved one whenever you have to step away. No matter the schedule or situation, we offer our care services to any adult in need.
