Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
At FirstLight Home Care, we know how it feels to want to do everything you can to support and maintain quality of life for an elderly family member or one with disabilities or chronic illness. It’s a tough job but one that you do for love—because you are compassionate, patient, and generous. Because you care.
But who’s taking care of you? The demands of caregiving can be overwhelming. It can feel like there is no time to take care of yourself. But not paying attention to your own needs can build resentment toward your family member. It’s important that you take care of your own happiness and fulfillment in order to be fair to both yourself and the person you love and care for. Your loved one wants that for you, too! Don’t let resentment degrade the great relationship you had until it feels like an obligation.

Remember to Be Yourself
While you’re in this caregiver role, it’s important that you don’t forget who you are. Being a caretaker is a part of that, but it’s not all you are. There are other people in your life—spouse, friends, other family members—and other things, like your career and hobbies. If you don’t attend to these things, you’re at risk for exhaustion, increased stress, and serious illness.
Taking care of yourself is a critical part of caring for someone else. Your loved one deserves your best, and the only way you can give them that is by taking a break from time to time to refresh. It’s a normal, healthy need, and your relationship with the person you care for will be better for it. Our Sugar Land respite care and in home caregiver service can provide the attention and quality of care that you would give while you relax and recharge. Let us help you get your “you” back.
