Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
The care you provide to the ones you love says leaps and bounds about your character, your work ethic, and your heart. Giving your time and patience to those around you shows that you’re committed to your community of friends and family, and we would like to give back. Your family member, loved one, anyone that you provide for can often be a lot of effort to care for, and putting yourself too fully into a job such as this often proves tiring.
You are an individual with needs just as much as your loved one is. The consequences of growing tired of an occupation so demanding leads to resentment, making the job harder and your relationships strained. Your loved ones, especially ones you take care of, value your health as much as you value theirs. Feeling your best mentally and physically is important to yourself and those you care for; and FirstLight of Lakeland and Winter Haven is here to help with our respite care and in home care services.
What Is Respite Care?
FirstLight is here to make sure not only are your loved ones cared for, you are too! When you’re taking on the role of primary caregiver, you don’t always have time for everything. While you’re away, we provide all the care you would, so you can be at ease. Whether it’s a few hours, all day, or longer, respite care and in home care can be given by our compassionate Lakeland and Winter Haven caregivers. And while our specialty is elder care; we provide for all ages of individuals in need of care. Take your personal time to recoup and let us take on the responsibility.

Remember to Be Yourself
It’s okay to need to put yourself first sometimes, taking care of yourself is a significant part of your life! The stress that can build up from extended periods of overworking affect important aspects of your life. Friends, family, hobbies, interests, or career; these all are just some of the things that make you up as a person and they need to be balanced. Being a caregiver brings out the best in people, but it can put on the most stress- remember this is only one part of who you are as a whole. While caregiving is an important job to the community in your life: staying ‘you’, happy, and healthy is just as vital.
FirstLight of Lakeland and Winter Haven is here to give you rest without guilt. Our respite care and in home care provides you relaxation to ensure you stay the best version of yourself!
