Here are some of the ways that we can help:
What is the Difference Between Home Care and Home Health Care?
Home care offers support in areas such as personal hygiene, transportation, medication reminders, mobility, housekeeping and meal preparation. It’s also designed to provide comfort and companionship. At FirstLight Home Care of Boston Northwest, we’re a top provider of this kind of care to seniors and others in the Cambridge area.
Home health care, on the other hand, offers medical care provided by a nurse, physical or occupational therapist or physician’s assistant. The purpose is to monitor an individual’s health, prescribe medications or new treatments and design and implement nutrition and exercise plans.
What is Non-Medical Care?
The purpose of non-medical care is to support your loved one in a way that makes life easier and helps them remain independent. At FirstLight Home Care of Boston Northwest, we provide this kind of senior care in the Cambridge area on a part-time or full-time basis, as well as around-the-clock and 365 days a year. We can help the elderly, as well as those with disabilities, chronic conditions or who are recovering after surgery.
What are the Advantages of Home Care vs. Senior Care in a Community?
Most seniors want to stay in their own homes where they feel happy and safe. With support from FirstLight Home Care of Boston Northwest, they’re able to do that. We take into account their personality, preferences and routine, so our team can provide care that’s personalized.
However, if your loved one is in a senior care community in or around the Cambridge area, we can provide extra help there, too. From running errands to sitting and chatting, we offer a number of services that can enhance their quality of life, wherever they call home.
How Do I Get Started with Senior Care?
Simply contact FirstLight Home Care of Boston Northwest. Our first step is to schedule an in-home consultation with you and your loved one. We’ll learn more about your needs and explain our services. We can also answer questions, so you gain a clearer sense of what’s right for your family moving forward.
