Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
Need a caregiving break? Let the compassionate caregivers at FirstLight Home Care of Fairfax, Vienna, and Gainesville provide respite care and in home care for you & your family members. We understand how hard you are working on behalf of your loved one. Every day we are in the trenches with primary caregivers who are edging on a breakdown from the stress and exhaustion of caring for a family member with a disease or special needs. We talk to many family members who feel guilty for even picking up the phone to call. They believe they should be able to handle it.
But no one can do what you are doing all the time. When all of your time and energy is being exerted toward being a primary caregiver, you don’t have time for other things that are critical to your health – exercise, being present with your family, keeping a house in order, advancing your career. And believe it or not, while you would do anything to love and help our family member in need, you also can begin to experience anger and resentment because you don’t have enough time to keep our life in working order.
Before that happens, call us at FirstLight Home Care. We offer respite care and in home care services to the communities of Northwest Virginia including Fairfax, Vienna, and Gainesville and surrounding areas, that will help mitigate a lot of the stress. Remember that your loved one would want you to be able to lead a happy and functioning life, too! Our compassionate caregivers are professionally trained and committed to provide the best respite care for you and your family.
What Is Respite Care?
Our respite care service is very flexible and adapts to your needs and schedule. Perhaps you need us for just a few hours so you can run an errand or a longer period of time – such as a month – so you can travel for work. Maybe you and your family really need a vacation because it’s been a particularly hard year. Whatever your timeframe, we have you covered. Our compassionate team of caregivers can be available whenever you are in need. Some of our respite care services include:
- Household chores
- Preparing medicines
- Administering medicines
- Cooking meals
- Assisting with eating, personal care and mobility
- And much more!
FirstLight proudly provides respite care and in home care services to the communities of Northern Virginia, Fairfax, Vienna, Gainesville, Manassas, and Haymarket, including Front Royal and Centreville.
Remember to Be Yourself
Our greatest advice to our potential clients is to remember what an amazing job you’ve done. You’ve done your very best and you’ve been there for your loved one in need. You are a compassionate and loving person. Try to fight away feelings of guilt for asking for help or leaving your loved one in the care of another caregiver. If you find the right team of caregivers who can love and care for your family member, then you truly are benefiting them. Your loved one would want you to have the most balanced life as possible, and that’s where FirstLight Home Care respite services can really help make a difference. Let us alleviate some of the stress and pressure so that you can be yourself and find balance in life.
