Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
When your family members and loved ones fall ill or live with a disability, you will become their caregiver because you want them to be taken care of and live the highest quality of life they deserve. When you become a caregiver, you put a lot of your own life on hold. Doing this says a lot about the kind of person you are – you are compassionate, patient and selfless beyond measure.
When you become a home caregiver, who is taking care of you? It is a demanding job that takes a lot of time and commitment. Focusing on someone else’s needs 24/7 can cause you to stop taking care of yourself on some fundamental levels. Not addressing the needs of yourself for so long, can turn a once good relationship between you and your loved one south, which in turn can cause unintended resentment. Before you get to this point in your caregiving relationship, consider respite care or in-home caregivers services from FirstLight Home Care of Savannah, Bluffton, and Hilton Head Island.

Remember to Be Yourself
The decision to be a caregiver is a big one and it can take up a lot of your time, but it doesn’t have to be the only important part of your life. Taking care of your family, friends and spouse are important to your overall wellbeing. Some caregivers have been known to develop health issues and increased levels of stress when they don’t take time for themselves.
We know that it can be hard to not feel guilty when it comes to taking some time for your own health, but we all need that chance to step out of our daily routines and refocus. When you are happy and healthy, your relationship with your loved one can continue its normal and loving path. FirstLight Home Care of Savannah, Bluffton, and Hilton Head Island provide respite care services and in-home caregivers that can help you find the “you” that may have been lost. Our in-home caregivers are dedicated to watching out for your loved one with the same attention and devotion that you do. It is normal to want a break, and we can help.
