Here are some of the ways that we can help:
What is the Difference Between Home Care and Home Health Care?
Home care can be provided on either a short-term or long-term basis at an individual’s residence. It can include help with showering and dressing, meal preparation, light housekeeping, transportation, mobility, medication reminders and more. It also encompasses social and emotional support through companionship and conversation.
Home health care is designed to meet the medical needs of an individual. It is often provided by a nurse, physician’s assistant or physical therapist. It includes monitoring patient health, changing or prescribing medications and creating or altering treatment protocols.
What is Non-Medical Care?
Non-medical senior care, which is what FirstLight Home Care of Beaufort provides, is designed to make life easier for an individual and their family. It also helps them live a more full life while staying independent and safe.
Beyond the elderly, we provide this care to veterans, those recovering after surgery, disabled adults and individuals with chronic health issues. We also offer dementia care, brain health services, respite care and travel companion care.
What are the Advantages of Home Care vs. Senior Care in a Community?
Most individuals want to remain in their own homes, where they feel safe and comfortable. Senior care from FirstLight Home Care of Beaufort allows them to do that. Our plans are customized and will enable your loved one to maintain their routine, right at home. We can help in many ways, whether around the house, with errands and transportation or with personal hygiene and mobility.
However, there are times when it’s clear a family member needs to be in a nursing home or long-term healthcare setting. When this occurs, our caregivers can still help. We offer services ranging from companionship and conversation to transportation to and from appointments and help with errands.
How Do I Get Started with Senior Care?
Once you contact FirstLight Home Care of Beaufort for senior care, we will schedule a consultation in your loved one’s home. This will help us learn more about their needs and your specific situation. We can also answer questions, address concerns and explain more about our services.
