Omaha Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
When you spend time caring for a chronically ill, disabled, or elderly family member, you commit the act out of a state of love. The commitment you make in ensuring your loved one is cared for in every imaginable way tells the world so much about you. It shows how benevolent, compassionate, warm-hearted and loving you are; doing whatever it takes to help the person dearest to you is true love in action.
But have you stopped to consider your needs? The demands of an elderly care giving job are extreme, and if they come at the expense of your own health, unintended consequences may sprout up in the future. Failure to foster your own happiness and fulfillment can indirectly create resentment toward your loved one overtime. Left unattended, this unwavering resentment can churn those internal emotions and transform a once-spectacular relationship into an energy draining obligation. This isn’t fair to either party; thankfully FirstLight of Omaha can help with our respite care services!

Remember to Be Yourself
Your caregiver role is just a fragment of the person you are. Failure to invest in the other wonderful things that make up life – spouse, friends, hobbies, careers – could have major implications. Family members acting as caregivers are prone to experience increased levels of stress, fatigue, and many other health problems.
It’s healthy and natural to seek time for yourself. Everyone is entitled to take a break; to step out of the everyday routine to re-charge, reassess, and refresh. This is a wonderful tool to augment personal relationships especially with the people you care for. Everyone is better off if both parties can stay happy, positive and high spirited. FirstLight’s Omaha Respite Care can help you discover the true “you” without destabilizing the quality and structure your family members enjoy.
