Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
We know that caring for your senior, chronically ill, or disabled love one comes from a place of deep care and love. We understand that your dedication and devotion to giving them the very best quality of life is based on your own special qualities of compassion and patience. And we appreciate that you are extremely dedicated to to helping the people you love.
But are you taking care of yourself? Providing care can take its toll on you; dealing with the difficult day-to-day issues surrounding the elderly care of your loved one may lead you to experience challenges to your own happiness and well-being. This can lead to resentful feelings which, if not confronted and addressed, may increase until these feelings negatively affect the positive and loving relationship you once enjoyed. Allowing your love to be impacted by the overwhelming task of having to care for your loved one is unfair to you both. It is important to remember that each of you deserves love and happiness!
What Is Respite Care?
The respite care provided by FirstLight Home Care of Roselle frees up time for you, as your loved one’s caregiver, to take care of yourself and your needs. While you take a break, we attend to the needs of your loved one. Our well-trained caregivers provide compassionate respite care in your Roselle home or any setting for as long as you need. We can provide elderly care for an hour or two; a few days a week including overnight care, or even longer depending on your needs. Though our care was designed for senior respite care, we help any adults needing assistance.

Remember to Be Yourself
At times, it is easy to forget that you are more than just a caregiver. You need to care for your spouse, children, and other important relationships; continue to participate in your own hobbies and activities that make you happy; and pay attention to your career so that these things don’t suffer. If you don’t take time to focus on yourself, you may become anxious, fatigued, and it can even take a toll on your own health. Do not feel guilty about self-care. We all need a break sometimes – to treat ourselves to downtime that gives us energy and relaxation. Doing so not only improves your own health and well-being, but your renewed sense of well-being makes you a better caretaker for your loved one. FirstLight Home Care is dedicated to giving you the time and space to take care of yourself by providing compassionate elderly care and respite care to your loved one in Roselle, Lombard, Elmhurst, or surrounding areas.
