Wichita Respite Care Services

Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too

We understand the commitment and love that comes with caring for a disabled, elderly, or chronically ill loved one. Wanting to give the best quality of life to him or her says a lot about your need to provide first-rate services to those you love. This involves immeasurable compassion, generosity, patience and a tremendous amount of determination and hard work.

But with caregiving being such a demanding job, it’s easy to overlook your well-being and needs. When you neglect your personal wellness for too long to provide the upmost care to others, this can lead to unhealthy and risky consequences. Putting others’ priorities before your own can not only put your happiness and fulfillment at risk but also create resentment over time. If this situation isn’t quickly addressed, this resentment can grow to feeling unfairly obligated and stressed to take care of your loved one, which neither you or your loved one will want for you. Your loved one is probably more distressed about being a burden to your happiness than you might think.

What Is Respite Care?

To avoid these situations, FirstLight provides Wichita respite care and elderly care to allow you to re-focus on your personal wellbeing, and relieve you of some of the obligations in taking care of your loved one. While you improve the quality of your life, you can rest assured that our professional and compassionate caregivers are providing the best care to the one you love.

Remember to Be Yourself

Don’t forget that being a caregiver is just a small part of your life and your identity. If you have a spouse, other family or friends, hobbies and interests, or a career, you have many other things that shape your character and are in jeopardy if they’re not tended to. There can be increased levels of stress, exhaustion, and even serious health problems when family caregivers don’t take care of themselves and their other parts of life.

You shouldn’t feel guilty for wanting to take time for yourself when or after caring for a loved one. It’s healthy and normal to take care of ourselves, creating time to rest, rejuvenate, and refresh to give us a break from our day-to-day obligations. After you’re re-energized, you’re happier and can take on your tasks in better spirits, strengthening the relationship with your loved one. Without compromising the quality of care and attention your loved ones need, FirstLight of Wichita’s elderly care and respite care is here to serve both you and your loved one in giving you the time to enjoy life again.
