Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
In the end, love is all that matters. That is the truth regardless of whether you are caring for a chronically ill family member or a loved one with a disability. You are ultimately doing so because you care. It is because you care that you are able to ensure that your elderly loved one is receiving the absolute best quality of life possible.
Unfortunately, if you are the caregiver, you need to also account for your needs. If you are channeling all of your efforts into caring for someone else, you are not doing yourself a favor. All too frequently, this could lead to resentment that will only continue to build up over time. When strong enough, resentment could lead to what was once believed to be a great relationship into an obligation. Something that needs to be remembered is that your loved one wants you to be happy, too!

Remember to Be Yourself
Because being a family caregiver can be so taxing, those who don’t take time for themselves can experience increased levels of exhaustion, stress and even serious health problems.
One critical thing to remember is that being a caregiver is only part of who you are. If you negate all the other things that help make up who you are like your significant other, friends and family, you will be headed down a road of trouble.
Always remember to enjoy some time for yourself, especially with no guilt. Take some time and go for a walk, to dinner or to a movie. You definitely need to continue to experience the simple pleasures of life without feeling guilty. Our services at FirstLight of Tr-Valley can help you find “you,” while also providing your loved one with top-flight care in the Tri-Valley and along the 680 Corridor.
