Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
When you are caring for an elderly, chronically ill, or disabled family member, you are doing it out of love. You do it because you care! Your commitment to tending to their needs and providing the best possible quality of life says a lot about you. It takes a lot of compassion, generosity, and patience. You would do anything to help the person you care about.
When doing this, it’s easy to forget about your own personal needs. Caregiving is a difficult and time consuming job. Caring for another at the expense of caring for you has the potential to lead to unforeseen consequences. Resentment may creep up, as you push aside your personal happiness and fulfillment. If unattended, the resentment may ulcerate until a special loving relationship is now looked at as a tedious task. This is not fair to you or your loved one. Don’t forget, your loved one deeply cares for you and your quality of life, too! This is why FirstLight Home Care of North Tampa and East Pasco County offers respite care and in home care services to people throughout Tampa, Wesley Chapel, and surrounding areas.

Remember to Be Yourself
Caregiving is only a fraction of the person you are. Ignoring all the other qualities that make you-you, may send you down a troublesome road. Your spouse, family, friends, hobbies, and career require your attention, as well. However, not making time for you can lead to increased levels of stress, exhaustion, and other serious health problems.
Don’t feel guilty for making time for yourself. You deserve that break! Change up the monotonous routine and find time to relax, re-energize, and refresh. If you are healthy and happy, you can strengthen the relationship with the person you care for. You’ll both be better off. FirstLight Respite Care can help you stay in touch with yourself without compromising the quality of care and attention your loved one deserves.
