Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
Have you been taking time each day to care for your ill or elderly loved one? While this demonstrates your love, compassion, and generosity, this type of commitment can be truly exhausting. While you are clearly committed to the well-being of your loved one, this strenuous work can eventually take a toll on your own health, slowly leeching away your personal time and commitments.
FirstLight Home Care knows that caregiving is demanding. We want to help provide the Salem, Keizer, Silverton and surrounding areas respite care suited to your specific needs so you can avoid burnout and spend some time taking care of your own wants and needs. If you continually neglect your own self-care, it is possible for resentment to build up towards your loved one, even if you don’t realize it. Taking care of loved ones shouldn’t feel like an obligation, and your family definitely wants you to stay happy and healthy!
What Is Respite Care?
When you realize that you need some time away from your caregiving role, FirstLight is ready to step in. Whether you need a one-time respite care service or recurring, longer-term assistance, our highly trained caregivers will provide the same level of care that you would to ensure that your loved one is well-taken care of. Regardless of the age of the adult you care for, elderly or younger, we are able to provide respite and in-home care services for Salem, Keizer, Silverton and surrounding areas that are perfect for your unique situation.

Remember to Be Yourself
Think back for a moment to the time before you started being a caregiver. What hobbies did you enjoy? Did you participate in a book club, or go fishing on the weekends? Maybe you went out to dinner with friends after work, or enjoyed watching the game with your spouse at the local sports bar. Which of your hobbies and activities do you still do?
If you don’t take the time for your hobbies, friends, and family, you will likely increase heightened levels of stress and exhaustion which could even lead to serious health problems. It is important that you take guilt-free time to yourself to relax and re-energize so you can continue caring for your loved one and maintain a positive relationship free of resentment. This is where FirstLight can help, with customized respite care services to allow you to step back and partake in what makes you “you”, without compromising the health and care of your loved one. FirstLight Home Care will be there to provide you and your loved one in the areas surrounding Salem, Keizer and Silverton, OR with the compassionate respite and in-home care your family needs.
