Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
Your unconditional love and attention to your elderly loved one or family member with disability says a lot about who you are—you really care. It also says a lot when the focus in your daily life is your commitment to making sure he or she is given the best possible quality care they need. A character of compassion, generosity, patience, and doing everything you can to satisfy your loved-one’s needs while disregarding yours, is a personal treasure which others may not have.
We understand that providing elderly care for a family member or a loved-one with disability is a full-time responsibility. On the other hand, if your life is so preoccupied with nothing else but caring for them while sacrificing all your personal needs and happiness, it could lead to unintended consequences. An on-going disregard to your self-existence may result to self-deprecation, depression, low self-esteem, animosity and anger. Such consequences may grow from a once-great relationship to sadness – a destruction which is unfair to you and the person you love. Keep in mind – when you’re happy, your loved one is happy too!

Remember to Be Yourself
Remember—it’s okay to be yourself! You deserve a break just like anybody else. So, utilize our Laurel and Hattiesburg respite care services, step out of the “guilt” part and enjoy yourself. Keep in mind that you have your spouse, your children, other family and friends, career, hobbies and interests that need your attention, too! You are noble to focus all your attention to your loved-one needing your care, but ignoring other vital things in your normal life may lead you to depression, stress, extreme level of anger and resentment – which, in the end, may lead to a serious health problem.
It’s time to step out of your daily routine – relax, re-energize and refresh! After all, everything’s better when you’re happy and energized. Because when you are, so is your loved-one. Let FirstLight Hattiesburg respite care do the job for you while you find the “you”, you’ve been missing for without jeopardizing the quality care and attention your family members deserve. You can count on us at FirstLight.
