Grand Junction Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
It is purely out of love that you care for your chronically ill or elderly family members, and for your disabled loved ones. Ensuring that he or she has all they need for the highest quality of life possible is a commitment that speaks volumes about you. It says that you are generous, patient, and compassionate; and that you would do anything you could to assist someone you care deeply for.
So what about you and your needs? Tending to others can be demanding at times, and if you are neglecting your own care while focusing on someone else, that can lead to undesirable outcomes. Over time, if you continue to place others’ needs above your own, and ignore your own path to happiness and contentment, resentment may creep in. And if this is allowed to continue, these ill feelings can fester and eventually consume what was once a great relationship and turn it into an obligation. This unfortunate transformation isn’t fair to you or the person you love; remember, your loved one wishes for you to be happy as well!

Remember to Be Yourself
The role of caregiver is only one of the many roles you play. If you neglect the other aspects of who you are, your relationships, your hobbies and interests, and your career, this can often spell trouble. Caregivers who do not make time for themselves often feel amplified levels of stress, serious exhaustion, and potentially chronic health problems.
You deserve the chance to take a break and invest in some “me time,” to escape the everyday routine and take time to relax and refresh, without the guilt. This self-care is normal, healthy, and will only serve to improve your relationship with the loved one you care for. Because in the end, when you are happy and energized, both of you will be better off! If you need help finding the “you” you’ve been overlooking without endangering the quality of care your family member deserves. Let our team give you a hand, with our Grand Junction, Mesa, Montrose and Delta area respite care and elderly care services.
