Remember to Be Yourself
At FirstLight Columbus we realize that being a caregiver is only part of who you are. We recommend that caregivers tend to all the other things that make them who they are as well, such as their marriage, family, friends, hobbies, other interests, and of course, their career. We have found that family caregivers who don’t take time for themselves can experience increased levels of stress, exhaustion, and even serious health problems.
We want you to know that it is ok to want some time for yourself, without guilt. Everyone deserves the opportunity to take a break and step out of the everyday routine for a little relaxation, to be able to re-energize and refresh. It is very healthy and normal to get some time away and can actually strengthen the relationship you enjoy with the person you care for. After all, when you’re happy and more energized, you’ll be more equipped to handle any challenge that comes your way. FirstLight Respite Care services can help you get back to your self without compromising the quality of care and attention your family member needs and deserves.
