EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE. EXCEPTIONAL CARE.
Providing care for loved ones can be a real challenge. Whether you live in the same neighborhood or have the additional complication of distance, it is never easy to manage our schedules and provide the kind of meaningful care that will be helpful to our older family members. If you are looking for a caring, responsive person to step in and help out, you have come to the right place. We, at FirstLight HomeCare aspire to be exactly what the family needs and offer high-quality, in-home non-medical care.
Are you at a life-stage where a helping hand will make things go smoother? You are not entirely mobile but do not want to change your living arrangements and you do not want to give up on your life style? What would work is assistance from someone thoughtful, responsible and sensitive – well, FirstLight HomeCare can offer you all that and more.
So, what exactly is FirstLight HomeCare? We are an agency that has started from the premise that the health and well-being of our clients is our primary goal and are committed to providing home assisted living. We are in the care-giving business but treat it more as a vocation than a purely contractual relationship. We approach home care situations with integrity and sensitivity and aim to ease lives and spread a sense of comfort. What this means is that we offer the option for senior citizens or new mothers to get a little bit of the additional help that they need to make their life more comfortable without taking away their feeling of independence or making them feel a loss of control. The emphasis is on the offer to help in a seamless manner so that there is no sense of embarrassment or self-consciousness for the recipient.
We offer different care options. The companion care arrangement will mean that the care giver will visit the client much as a friend or family member would and help fill in the gaps as needed. This may mean visits to make the person feel looked-after and connected rather than isolated. A stimulating conversation or a shared meal can go a long way in improving a person’s quality of life. The companion care option can include medication reminders – while FirstLight HomeCare is a source of non-medical care, the care givers can help with reminders and also help patients take previously-measured doses of medicines. They can also help by monitoring potential side effects. Companion care can include house cleaning and light meal preparation all of which can seem like a monumental task for a person who is feeling a little tired or run down. Having the details of laundry taken care of can be a big relief for a new mother or a senior citizen.
Our caregiving is attentive to the physical and emotional well-being of each client – we do not take a regimented approach to caregiving but see it as a nuanced and responsive task. There are occasions where a person is able to manage their lives very well by themselves but are not able to drive around for running errands or to visit friends. This can be handled by a companion who can provide a concerned and engaged help by driving the client to different appointments. The end result is that whatever the situation, FirstLight HomeCare aims to communicate readiness to assist.
Personal home care is another service offered by FirstLight HomeCare. This is for cases where there is more personalized help necessary and may include things like helping a client with a bath or even with handling issues such as oral hygiene. If what is needed is assisted senior living and yet the person is unwilling to consider a retirement home or an assisted living community, this kind of personalized help with daily tasks can be the perfect answer to a problematic situation.
Our philosophy of Culture of Care, our exceptionally well-trained and motivated caregivers who are direct employees and not contractors, our array of family services that allow for active family participation in the caregiving are among some of the features that make FirstLight HomeCare a leader in the home assisted living industry. Combine all this with a high level of professionalism and a genuine interest in fostering an environment of helpfulness and caring and you will understand why our clients are happy to give us glowing feedback.
