Nashville, Franklin & Brentwood Respite Care Services
You’ve spent hours, days, and years looking after a loved one with a disability or chronic illness because you love them more than anything. Your dedication to their health and happiness most often feels equal parts rewarding and exhausting. Its required untold amounts of patience, generosity, and respect that were put upon you when you least expected it. We hold endless respect for your ability to drop everything and care for them.
But even the most dedicated caregiver needs a break. Though we know you would do anything for someone you care about, we also think they would benefit if you took some time for yourself. When a person spends every waking moment worrying about someone else, they lose themselves in the process. Without attending to your our own personal happiness and fulfillment, you may unintentionally harbor some resentment for the person who has taken so much of your time. Even though you love them, constant caregiving can break any positive relationship down into a shallow obligation. You should never sacrifice the joy and contentment of love just because you feel like there’s no one who can help you. That’s why FirstLight Home Care offers Nashville, Brentwood, and Franklin respite care services.

Remember to Be Yourself
Life is journey and your loved one is a part of that. We understand that you want to provide the utmost attention and care for them, giving them a happy, healthy life. But your needs—your dreams, your family, your friends, your interests—they all still matter. If you neglect your personal fulfillment, you and your loved one will both suffer, no matter how much you try to prevent that.
There’s no point in feeling guilty when you take personal time. Your loved wants you to be yourself—that’s why they love you. Nobody should have to devote every second of their existence to another person. That’s not living for either of you. Stepping out of your caregiving routine for your own purposes will rejuvenate and strengthen your relationship with them. Also, a fresh face can be very beneficial for your loved one. It’s someone new to talk to, someone new to share stories with, and someone trained to keep them engaged in life. Our compassionate caregivers look after your loved one with devotion and kindness, aiming for the same comfort and independence they would feel in your presence. After our Nashville respite care services provide you with a break you can see them again feeling refreshed and eager to spend time together.
