Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
Firstlight Home Care recognizes the type of person that makes the daily sacrifice of taking care of a loved one. We understand that in many situations, those individuals that are taking care of the injured or chronically ill, are often never looked after themselves.
Caregiving is a demanding job and many times you are forgoing your own care for another, but this could have unplanned consequences. Not taking care of you can create an environment leading to festering resentment, depression, and what was once an act of love becomes an obligation. Your loved one needs care, but beyond that, they want you to be cared for and happy as well. That’s where our Santa Rosa respite care service can be of help for your loved ones located in Santa Rosa, Petaluma, Rohnert Park and beyond!

Remember to Be Yourself
You are first and foremost an individual. From your family and friends to your hobbies and career, if you are constantly caring for another, it can lead to disaster in those other areas of your life. Failing to take care of yourself can lead to increased stress, exhaustion, and even your own health problems brought on by the increased mental and physical stress – even if you don’t feel it now.
You do not need to feel guilty for looking after yourself. Everyone needs a break from time to time, to break the routine and come back refreshed and ready to continue to care for your loved one. At Firstlight Home Care, we want to be that source of freedom for you so that you can take the break you have been missing, without there being any break in the important care your loved one needs.
