Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
When you are caring for an elderly loved one, a chronically ill family member, or someone with a disability, you do it out of love. It is most important to you that this person has the best quality of life and is well taken care of. You will do anything in your power to make this happen because you deeply care and have compassion for your loved one.
However, caregiving can be an incredibly demanding job that may come at the expense of taking care of yourself. By putting another person’s needs before yours, your personal happiness may be put on the back burner and can unintentionally turn into resentment over time. This can then transform your relationship with your loved one into tasks you feel obligated to do. The person you are caring for wants you to be happy and healthy as well, so this expense is not fair to either of you.

Remember to Be Yourself
Being a caregiver is not the only quality that makes you who you are as a person. Family caregivers who do not take the time for their spouse, family and friends, hobbies, or their career can eventually experience stress, exhaustion, or other serious health problems.
As a caregiver, you deserve to take a break and refresh your mental and physical health without any guilt. This is very normal and can even strengthen the relationship you have with the person you care for. FirstLight Home Care’s respite care services are offered in Brighton, Howell, Chelsea and other surrounding Michigan cities which will allow you to take this time for yourself without compromising the care that your loved one deserves as well.
FirstLight Home Care of Brighton is a provider of respite care and in home caregiver services to the Michigan communities of Howell, Chelsea, Dexter, Gregory, Hamburg, New Hudson, Pinckney, South Lyon, Whitmore Lake, Hartland, Highland, Milford, Dansville, Holt, Mason, Munith, Stockbridge, Lakeland, and Cohoctah.
