Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
FirstLight Home Care of Houston understands that being a caregiver for a loved one can be rewarding but also physically, emotionally and mentally demanding and overwhelming. You take pride in providing elderly care for your family member, or assistance for a loved one with a disability, and naturally feel responsible for meeting their everyday needs. The extent that you go to achieve this may be compromising to your own health and wellbeing.
Family caregivers struggle to think of their own needs at a time when others need them. You might even feel guilty for having such feelings. FirstLight Home Care wants to let you know that it is important to consider your own needs too! Caregiving can be very difficult and doing it alone can be exhausting as well as detrimental to your health and wellbeing. Caregiver burnout is very common amongst family caregivers who provide constant care and support. Recognizing the warning signs of exhaustion is critical to taking the first steps to addressing the problem.
