Personal Care & Eldercare Services From A FirstLight Personal Care Assistant
Maintaining Your Dignity With Eldercare From A FirstLight Personal Care Assistant
FirstLight eldercare provides a variety of eldercare services provided by a personal care assistant to assist with the activities of daily living—giving you additional peace of mind and your family member the dignity and comfort he or she deserves.
Bathing and Hygiene
For many health and social reasons, good personal hygiene is very important. Your FirstLigt personal care assistant is specially trained in bathing, personal hygiene and other eldercare services, and always focus on preserving the dignity, comfort, and health of each client.
Walking and Mobility
We recognize that our clients can benefit from regular movement both physically and mentally. Your personal care assistant will carefully consider the physical limitations and comfort of each client’s ability to walk, climb stairs, get in and out of vehicles, and make other routine movements as they assist them.
Transfer and Posture
In addition to helping our clients with regular movement around the home or around town, your personal care assistant will also concentrate on making sure each client maintains proper posture for eating or while sitting and reading or watching television. This helps with digestion and circulation. We can also assist with helping clients get in and out of bed or the bathroom.
Continence and Toileting Care
Our FirstLight eldercare caregivers are trained and experienced in assisting with urinary and bowel care. We understand the role that toileting care can play in a client’s comfort, self-esteem, and social life.
Special Diets and Meal Preparation
We work with clients, families, and nutrition professionals to plan and prepare meals according to the specific needs of our clients. This can include shopping for special diets (diabetic, low-sodium, low-trans fat, etc.) and working to fix favorite dishes just right.
Some of our clients may have physical and emotional challenges in the ability to perform basic functions. Our eldercare services provide exceptional sensitivity, care, and safety for clients with these challenges.
Your personal care assistant can help with mouth, gum, and denture care to encourage better overall oral hygiene.
