Keeping You Independent

We provide elderly companion care services, at home caregiver services for the chronically ill or those recovering from surgery or illness, and 24-hour home care.
Regular Visits, Conversation, and Company
When someone is caring for an ailing spouse or living alone, having someone stop by for a visit and some conversation can make all the difference. FirstLight Home Care companion caregivers are there to share a meal or offer a welcome conversation, giving those in need of company something to look forward to.
Although our in home caregivers can’t administer medicine, they can help with pre-measured medication and offer reminders to take medications in a timely manner. They can also be there to monitor other medical issues or side effects that may occur. FirstLight Home Care of Asheville provides home healthcare technology solutions and we have special medical dispensers available to our clients.
Preparing a healthy meal can be time-consuming and bothersome, which is why some seniors don’t get the nutrition they need to remain healthy. Our FirstLight companion care and at home care services in Asheville, Hendersonville, Candler, and surrounding areas can help by preparing healthy meals on a regular basis, making sure seniors maintain a healthy diet. Our caregivers can also ensure that proper nutrition is maintained for medications, clean up afterward, and be there to offer company during a meal.
FirstLight home health companion caregivers can help with light housekeeping, including taking out the trash, dusting, vacuuming, organizing, and light cleaning of bathrooms and kitchens. We know a tidy home is more comfortable and provides peace of mind.
When seniors have trouble with pain, fatigue, or mobility, even a simple chore such as laundry can become a burden. Our caregivers can help with washing, drying, folding, ironing, and putting away laundry such as towels, linens, and clothing.
Shopping, Errands, and Transportation
Remaining independent in your own home requires shopping for groceries, picking up prescriptions, running errands, and having transportation to appointments or other destinations. At FirstLight, our in home companion caregivers can help with transportation needs, including going shopping or visiting a favorite restaurant, and having one of our highly trained caregivers there helps ensure the client’s well-being.
Our ClientFirst matching system carefully matches our caregivers to our clients’ interests, so a favorite activity such as bingo or a game of cards will be genuinely enjoyable. Whether attending a nature class or a concert, our caregivers can provide welcomed companionship.
Mail and Paperwork Organization
Keeping up with important documents such as bills can become overwhelming for some seniors. Our home caregivers can help organize documents, mail, and bills, and when requested, can also assist with opening and reading mail.
Our FirstLight Home Care caregivers can provide live-in caregiving services, whether for a limited time or a permanent basis. We understand that some situations require regular home care from a caregiver who resides within the home.
24-Hour Home Care
At FirstLight Home Care, we are a technology leader in the home care industry, and can provide 24/7 peace of mind. Our selection of personal emergency response system devices and our secure, web-based care monitoring tool, Client Care Access, allow our caregivers to be available any time of day or night.
