Respite Care Services

Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too

When you are a caregiver for a loved one with dementia, a chronic illness, or a disability, you give so much of yourself. You care for them because you love them, and want them to have the best quality of life. This is an amazingly generous and compassionate gift to give your loved one. But being their primary caregiver means your own needs often are sacrificed.

Being a caregiver is difficult, and can easily become overwhelming if you aren’t able to meet your own needs. When you don’t take time for yourself, you might begin resenting your loved one, creating a negative environment for them and for you. By giving yourself a break and allowing the time to take care of yourself, you are actually doing something positive for both of you. Your loved one loves you and doesn’t want you to be unhappy, over-tired, or stressed out from taking care of them. Our care services, provided by FirstLight Home Care of Spokane and Coeur d’Alene can help you get the break you need.

What Is Respite Care?

Respite care gives you a much-needed break from your caregiving responsibilities so you can recharge, recoup, and refocus on yourself for a little bit. FirstLight Home Care can provide one-time respite services or ongoing, regular services, and can be provided for an hour or two, a full day, or even longer if needed. Our professional caregivers are compassionate and fully trained to provide the care that your loved one needs while you are taking time for yourself. Our services are typically geared towards elder care, but we will provide care for any adult who needs respite services.

Remember to Be Yourself

Just as dementia or disability doesn’t define who your loved one is as a person, being a caregiver doesn’t define who you are. You are a special, unique individual, and it’s important that you provide time for the other parts of your life outside of caregiving. Taking time to be with your friends, family, spouse, and for hobbies is so important to your personal well-being. Your loved one depends on you for care, and if you are not at your best, you won’t be providing them with the best care. It’s very common for caregivers to become burned out, experiencing increased levels of stress, fatigue, and even more serious health problems.

It’s okay to want a break, and it’s okay to take one without feeling guilty. Taking time out for yourself to regroup will actually benefit your loved one. If you are tired, stressed out, and becoming resentful, you won’t be able to provide the care that your loved one deserves. FirstLight Home Care can help you take time off from caregiving to address and take care of your own needs. You owe it to yourself and to your loved one.
