Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
When you step into the role of caring for your loved one, it comes from a place of love and caring. You are compassionate for your loved one, so it comes natural to care for them in a time of need. You are dedicated to ensuring their every need is tended to and they uphold the best quality life as possible. Pouring your time and energy into another individual is demanding, both mentally and physically. If your own needs are neglected, it could lead to resentment for the one that you hold so dearly in your heart.
What Is Respite Care?
FirstLight Home Care proudly provides Venice and Sarasota respite care to caregivers in need. With in-home respite caregivers, you can take some much needed rest to focus on yourself. We’ll ensure your loved one is care for, just as if you were caring for them yourself. We’ll get to know you and your loved one, to ensure we can tend to every need.

Remember to Be Yourself
Caregiving is only a fraction of what makes you, you! If your role of being a caregiver overrules your life, and your spouse, friends, and family, and hobbies you love fall to the wayside, it could lead to unintended consequences. Too frequently do family caregivers experience stress, extreme exhaustion, which can lead to severe health issues.
Needing time for yourself is okay – you don’t have to feel guilty. Everyone needs a break once in a while. Taking time away from caring for your loved one will allow you to unwind and feel rejuvinated when it’s time to come back to care for your loved one. Taking a break is beneficial to both you and your loved one. FirstLight’s respite care in home caregivers, serving Venice, Sarasota, Englewood, North Port, Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda, can help prevent caregiver burnout, while ensuring your loved one receives a high quality of care.
