Atlanta Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
When you care for someone a loved one who is aging, chronically ill, or has a disability that impacts their daily life, it is out of the kindness out of your heart that you tend to their every need. However, providing full-time care for someone can take be time-consuming and mentally exhausting. Our respite care and elderly care services, available to the communities of Conyers, Snellville, Monroe, and East Atlanta, we can step in to provide you, the primary caregiver, a much needed break. With the same level of compassion, commitment and dedication, FirstLight will care for your loved one, providing the same level of care as they would receive from you. We understand that not everyone can invest the amount of time, energy, and effort that is needed in caregiving, we acknowledge that this does take its toll on the demands that you may already have now in your life. In other words, you need to take care of yourself and not neglect your individual needs as a person. Doing so will have a negative effect on how you behave towards not only the person in need, but to others in your life as well–including yourself.
What Is Respite Care?
Giving you the valuable time that you need to take care of yourself and recharge, our respite care and elderly care programs, designed for the communities of Conyer, Snellville, Monroe, and surrounding East Atlanta, will allow you to refocus on yourself when you need it the most. It’s simply unrealistic to be a primary caregiver for someone 24/7. Our professionally trained and compassionate caregivers provide you the time that you urgently need for yourself; whether it’s for a couple of hours a week, for the whole day, evenings or even longer if you need it.

Remember to Be Yourself
Being a caregiver is only part of whom you are. It’s vitally important, but life happens and you can’t escape from it. You no doubt have other family members to care for as well such as your spouse, children or even other elderly family members. You may be a senior yourself advancing towards needing help yourself. If you have a job or business to attend to, then the burden becomes even greater. After a relatively short time, exhaustion, anxiety and other increased health issues may begin to affect you as well.
It’s normal for people to need a break – caregivers especially need a break. Taking time out to relax, recharge and refocus is part of being a good caregiver. It may even keep you from turning your relationship over time into resentment against your loved one in need. Helping you find the balance that you need is a part of the FirstLight Respite Care program.
