Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
If you are a primary caregiver for a disabled loved one, a senior, or a family member suffering from a long-term illness, we are able to help you too. Being the primary caregiver for a loved one is a difficult task, and in many cases can result in the caregiver putting the needs of others ahead of the own physical, emotional and mental well-being. You may believe that you can “do it all”. Seeking help doesn’t mean you’re not up to the task. Being an in-home caregiver is a 24/7 job and at some point, everyone needs a break.
What is Respite Care?
Respite care provides full time caregivers, like you, temporary rest from caregiving. It gives you time to relax with friends or family, time to take care of errands such as shopping, exercising, going to the spa, getting a massage, a haircut, or treating yourself to a favorite activity. Most importantly, provides you with time to yourself. During your time off, we take care of your loved one, whether it’s just for few hours, the day, overnight, or for extended periods like vacations. Our specially trained and compassionate staff of caregivers will give your loved one the care and attention they need, while providing you with time to relax and re-energize.

Remember to Be Yourself
It is normal to take some personal time without feeling guilty about it. A well-deserved break from daily duties is important to everyone so that they can unwind, refresh and re-energize. It is okay to have a break for your health and can help re-bond with your loved one. Seeking help does not make you a failure. Respite care services by FirstLight Home Care of Overland Park benefit the person needing care as well as the full time caregiver.
