Respite Care in Cambridge
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
Giving a loved one who’s elderly or disabled the help and support they need takes a lot of time. It can eventually lead to stress, exhaustion and even burnout. FirstLight® Home Care of Boston Northwest can help. We offer respite care for family caregivers in Cambridge, Lexington and surrounding areas in Massachusetts.
Our respite care is designed to give you a break, so you can step away and take time for yourself, whether it’s to go on vacation, relax with family or friends or manage other obligations. While you’re away, your loved one will be with one of our compassionate and skilled caregivers, receiving a level of attention that’s personalized to their needs.
What is Respite Care?
It’s easy to think you can manage your loved one’s needs on your own. Over time, though, it can take over your life and start to lead to caregiver stress and burnout. It’s why taking a break with respite care is so important. It gives you the freedom to step away and focus on your own life and well-being. You’ll return feeling renewed and refreshed, so when you are with your loved one, you’ll have more patience and energy.
We can work with you and your family to create a schedule that works for your needs. We offer care for a few hours, overnight, while you’re away on vacation or on a regular, recurring basis. During our time with your loved one, we can meet many needs, such as:
- Meal preparation and light housekeeping
- Bathing, dressing, grooming and other personal hygiene help
- Support with mobility while getting around the house
- Transportation to and from appointments and to run errands
- Companionship, comfort and conversation
