Branford Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
You have made a commitment to take care of your family member and we commend you. Taking care of a family member with a chronic illness, disability or needs extensive elderly assistance is not easy and you making sure your loved one has the best quality of life shows the type of person you are. The generosity, compassion and patience that it takes to care for a loved one are not qualities that everyone possesses.
You take on the demanding job, every day, without question. But sometimes it is important to take a step back and think about yourself. If you are focusing on caring for someone else and making sure all of their needs are met, you may be unintentionally not meeting your own. If you ignore your own needs, it could lead to resentment towards your loved one. They appreciate all of the time, effort and love you put into taking care of them, but they want you to take care of yourself, too.
