Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
Our caring nature wants to take over when a loved one becomes elderly, chronically ill, or disabled. We want to provide complete care just as our loved one has done for us. We need comfort knowing that they are receiving the proper care they deserve.
Personal hardship in your personal life or career can lead to exhaustion, feelings of being overwhelmed, or possibly resentment towards a loved one who needs extended care. The health of a family caregiver or the quality of care of a loved one may begin to suffer. Your health and well-being are just as important as the care you are providing.
What is Respite Care?
Our caregiver services can provide a temporary break to family members that need to recharge and refocus on their personal lives. FirstLight can also offer respite care to your loved one during vacations or other scheduled obligations when you are unavailable. Having the security of knowing your loved one is receiving quality care during your absence provides the peace of mind both you and your loved one deserve. During your break, you can rest easy knowing that our professional and compassionate caregivers are providing the same attention to your loved one that you do yourself. We can provide quality care for as long as needed, from only a few hours a day or for an extended period of time. Although we specialize in respite care for the elderly individuals, we are committed to providing the same quality of care to every client who needs assistance.

Remember to Be Yourself
We understand the importance of knowing your loved one is receiving quality care. Having the time and energy to participate in the activities you participated in before your loved one’s illness or disability will help with caregiver burnout and exhaustion. Your responsibilities to your family, friends, events, or your career need to continue for your self-fulfillment. You deserve to have a break without feeling guilty or worried that your loved one is not receiving the care they need. Your loved one wants you to be happy too! Respite care services from our compassionate caregivers allow you to return to your daily activities or take a much-needed break.
