Respite Care in Lexington
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
As a family caregiver, you have a lot of love, patience, and generosity in your heart. However, it’s also a demanding role, one that can lead to exhaustion and burnout if you don’t have help. Let FirstLight® Home Care of Lexington step in and provide the support you need. With our respite care services, offered to families in Lexington, Versailles and nearby areas in Kentucky, you can get a break, while your loved one is cared for by professionals. Your life matters too, and we can help you lead your best one.
What is Respite Care?
Whether your family member is disabled, elderly, chronically ill or recovering, respite care gives you the break you need to take time and step away. At FirstLight Home Care of Lexington, we can provide professional caregivers for a few hours, for several days or on a recurring basis. We’ll listen, ask questions, learn about your needs, then develop a personalized plan that’s right for you and your loved one.
In the meantime, while they’re in our safe and experienced hands, you gain the time and freedom to manage your own life. You can enjoy your family and friends, take a trip, get work done or simply relax and re-energize. This is critically important to maintaining balance and a sense of well-being in your own life, as well as avoiding caregiver burnout.
With respite care from FirstLight Home Care of Lexington, we can meet your loved one’s needs in a range of ways, including with:
- Mobility support
- Meal preparation
- Light housekeeping and laundry help
- Conversation and companionship
- Personal hygiene assistance
- Medication reminders
