Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
People take care of their elderly, ill, or disabled loved ones because they care deeply for them. It takes a very strong and loving person to ensure their family member or friend has everything they could possibly need and is living the best life possible.
Caring for a loved one that requires a large commitment of your time can eventually wear on the caregiver as well. It takes balance to learn to take care of someone, as well as take care of yourself. It’s important to make sure you do not let your own life suffer at the expense of caring for someone else. FirstLight HomeCare offers a variety of schedules for respite care and elderly care in Okemos and Lansing, whether it’s a one-time basis, weekly, or more. We will work with you and together, we will decide on a plan that best helps you and your loved one.
What Is Respite Care?
Respite care allows caregivers to take time off from their primary caregiving role for themselves. We will care for your loved one in any setting, such as the hospital or at home. Available to Okemos and surrounding Lansing communities, our respite care and elderly care services can be utilized for a few hours, all day, overnight, or longer if needed. While we specialize in elderly patients, we are available for adults of any age.

Remember to Be Yourself
Neglecting other family members, your hobbies, your career, or interests can lead to other problems. Caregivers that forget to care for themselves or believe they can’t leave their loved one, often suffer from stress, exhaustion, or other health problems.
It’s healthy to take a break, to unwind, and to let someone you can trust care for your loved one. It will increase your happiness which in turn will lead to a better relationship with the person you’re caring for. It’s normal, healthy, and well deserved. We can assist you with this area of your life and enable you to rest easy knowing your loved one is being very well cared for.
