Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
Who needs respite care? Well, you do if you’re providing care to a relative or friend on a regular basis. You may love doing what you do to make the other person happy, content, comfortable and well looked after, but there comes a time when you also must put your needs first. There’s a very high likelihood that you’ll burn yourself out if you don’t take some time to care for yourself. This is where our compassionate highly trained Mentor area respite care and in home caregivers can step in and help you out.
We know you have the love and compassion to look after your elderly or disabled adult relative. We also know that there will be times when you need to take a break, otherwise you may develop unintentional resentment. Before that happens, come to us and we can help you with caring people who can fill in, take on your support role on a short term or on a regular basis so you can take time for you also!

We have a caring professional team of caregivers who are ready and willing to step in and help with your loved one.

Remember to Be Yourself
While being a caregiver for another adult can be a big part of your life, you need to strike a balance with the rest of your life and family. It’s vital to your health and emotional stability to have space and to be able to step back at times from the role of caregiver. FirstLight Home Care of Chardon and Northeast Cleveland provides respite care and in home caregiver services in Mentor, Mayfield and Chesterland, so there is no need to feel guilt for needing a break. No one holds down a job 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. You’re not expected to be available all day and night either, as that can lead to stress related illness for a caregiver, and not to mention exhaustion! When you’re exhausted and stressed, the people around you suffer with you. Let FirstLight respite care step in and help you. Taking a break leaves you energized and ready to come back with new enthusiasm and vigor, strengthening your relationship with your loved one and with your family members.
It’s okay to want some time for yourself, without guilt. Everyone deserves the opportunity to take a break, to step out of the everyday routine to relax, re-energize, and refresh. It’s healthy, normal, and can strengthen the relationship you enjoy with the person you care for. After all, when you’re happy and more energized, you’ll both be better off. FirstLight respite care services can help you find the “you” you’ve been missing without compromising the quality of care and attention your family member needs.
