Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
We know that whether you are caring for an elderly or chronically ill family member, or a loved one who is living with a disability, you do so out of love—that’s because you care. What says a lot about you is the commitment held in making sure that your loved one has everything needed to live a quality life. This shows your compassion, generosity, patience, and overall will to help someone that you love and care about.
It is also important to balance you and your needs, and here at FirstLight Home Care of Mainline we understand that caregiving can be a demanding job on its own. When you begin to care for someone at the expense of taking care of yourself too, this can lead to unintended consequences. Constantly putting other’s priorities ahead of your own unfortunately can lead to resentment over time. When this resentment is left unaddressed, this feeling can grow and may transform an incredible relationship into a feeling of obligation. It is always important to note that your loved one wants you to be happy, too!

Remember to Be Yourself
It is important to remember that being a caregiver is only part of who you are. There are many things that you also get to tend to during your day-to-day like your spouse, family, hobbies and interests, and career path. Family caregivers who do not prioritize themselves and their own well-being can experience health issues that include increased levels of stress and exhaustion.
Remember that you are allowed to enjoy some time for yourself without feeling guilty. Indulge in the opportunity to take a step back from your everyday routine to re-energize and refresh. This pause in routine is normal and can better strengthen the relationship you have with your loved one. After all, when you are happy and more energized, you both will be better off. FirstLight Home Care of Mainline provides Montgomery County, Bryn Mawr, and Narberth respite care services, so that you can be in better touch with yourself without compromising the quality of care and time that is given to your family member.
