Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
What is Respite Care?
Caregivers are constantly on the go taking care of a loved one who has a disability or is tending to an elderly family member, which takes extra energy and time away from other family members, or daily essentials needing to be done to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Being committed to your loved one, your needs may go unattended something that FirstLight recognizes.
Our caregivers will become team members with you and your family to create a support network for your family member and you, the care provider, to give you both a rest from the daily intensity of maintaining daily living.
By having a reliable support team to relieve you of the responsibilities for even an hour, entire day, overnight, or longer if needed to give you a break will allow for a quality of life for both caregiver and client. During this time you as the main caregiver can revitalize your strengths to give the best of yourself to the family member who is disabled, chronically ill, or elderly.
Respite care is meant to give the care provider the much needed rest and comfort of knowing someone you trust has your loved one’s best interest in mind.
Our professional caregivers specialize in elderly respite, but also expand to any adult needing our help.
When do you ask for respite care?
- Before feeling resentful about your daily tasks
- When you feel tired and worn out
- When you feel like there is no time to care for personal needs of your own
- When you want to do something that may be hard for your loved one to participate in
