Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
When you have an elderly or chronically ill family member, or a loved one with a disability, you expend all of your energy into caring for them out of love. This level of sacrifice and commitment to their betterment speaks highly of your compassionate, generous, and patient nature.
You and your needs are not to be forgotten or ignored. With the demanding job that caregiving can be, it can be easy to put yourself last. The consequences of not paying heed to your own happiness and fulfillment can lead to resentment that grows as you prioritize others before yourself. If left unattended, your relationship with your loved one can fester and suffer until caring for them becomes an obligation. Never forget that your loved one cares for your happiness too.

Remember to Be Yourself
Your identity is not limited to being a caregiver. It is important to your overall health to tend to and be present in other areas of your life, including your family, friends, hobbies, and career. When you spread yourself too thin and don’t show yourself some love, you can find yourself with serious health problems on top of high levels of stress and exhaustion.
You are allowed to want time for yourself without feeling guilty. You deserve a break once in a while to relax and refresh yourself. Doing so is not only healthy but can strengthen the relationship you share with your loved one. Let FirstLight Home Care Pasadena elderly care and respite care services help you maintain your emotional health and sense of self so you don’t have to compromise the care you give to your family member.
