Respite Care Services
Because Your Quality of Life Matters Too
Care for an elderly or chronically ill family member comes from a place of love. Any family that shows such commitment does themselves credit. Your actions in helping those you care about reveal your generosity, compassion, and patience.
But you have needs too. Ignoring your needs because of the trials of caregiving can be dangerous. If you do not take care of your own mental and fulfillment needs you can end up resenting those who you have poured so much of yourself in to. This resentment can turn a caring relationship into a resentment that festers and hurts both you and the one you care for. Your loved one would not want that; they want you to be happy. Let FirstLight help you provide elderly care in Woodbridge, Burke and the surrounding communities.
What Is Respite Care?
FirstLight Home Care Woodbridge’s respite care services gives you time to rest and focus on yourself while knowing that your loved one continues to receive excellent care. While you take the time you need, your loved one will receive personal care tailored to the individual. Whatever your needs, our compassionate caregivers can meet them; they can provide elderly care for a few hours, days, overnight, or for a long-term period. Your schedules and needs determine ours.

Remember to Be Yourself
You are more than just a caregiver. Your life will be unbalanced if you do not give attention to your spouse, family, friends, career, and hobbies. Giving attention to your whole life can make your relationship with the person you care for better. A happy caregiver gives better care. FirstLight elderly care and respite care services in Woodbridge can share the burden and help you get back the whole you again.
You do not need to feel guilty for wanting time to yourself, especially since taking this time can make you an even better caregiver. Everyone needs a break now and again; relaxing and refreshing the mind and body can be very helpful. You are human; needing some time to yourself is healthy and normal. It can even make your relationship with your loved one stronger in the long run. When you feel happy, your care will improve and your loved one will notice the difference. While you rest, you can rest assured that FirstLight Home Care Woodbridge provides the same high level of care you demand from yourself.
