Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
Your commitment to providing the best quality of life for your loved one with a disability or chronic illness shows how much you care. However, your compassion, patience, and generosity can have unintended consequences for your own health and happiness. The ongoing demands of caregiving and putting your loved ones needs first can be exhausting for you and your family, to the point that it might lead to resentment and your love becoming more task and obligation.
Your loved ones deserve you at your best; your personal well-being is critical to your loved one’s quality of life. This is why FirstLight of Lancaster, Manheim, and Lititz offers respite care and in home care services.
What Is Respite Care?

Our professional and compassionate caregivers can provide personalized care for a few hours, a whole day, overnight, or even longer.

Remember to Be Yourself
The best times and memories come from a space of relaxation and happiness. Being a caregiver is demanding, and while your compassion and care express your love; your spouse, other family, personal interests, and career also still need you at your best. Not taking the time for other parts of life can dramatically increase your stress, exhaust you, and lead to serious health problems if left unattended. You should feel no guilt in taking a break, we all need it. Just as we need to go to sleep each night, we all need time to relax, re-energize, and refresh ourselves.
FirstLight of Lancaster, Lititz, and Manheim’s respite care and in home care services provide your loved one with quality care while you rejuvenate yourself and come back refreshed.
