Extraordinary People. Exceptional Care
Providing The Best In-Home Care, Elderly Care & Senior Care
You know your parent, family member, or elderly loved one better than anyone, so when you decide to let us help provide senior care for them, we listen to what you have to say. You are an outstanding guide for us. We wish what you wish: to help them enjoy the best quality of life, comfort, happiness, and independence for as long as possible. We enjoy talking to you and your family member so that both of you feel comfortable with us and our caregiving role. We keep you informed and involved on an on-going basis and offer you calm and security that they are being cared for in the loving way that you would provide yourself.
Here are some of the ways that we can help:
At FirstLight Home Care of Bowie, Upper Marlboro, and Clinton, we provide non-medical senior care and companion care that covers everything from household duties like cooking, cleaning, and laundry to individual needs such as bathing and hygiene, continence and toileting care, mobility assistance, companionship, and help with eating. We provide both short-term home care, as well as long-term home care that is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Our home care services are available to people of all ages, in all locations, at all times. This includes seniors that require minimal assistance to stay in their homes, care for the elderly who have chronic illnesses, families with members who have special needs or disabilities, people recovering from illness or surgery, new moms, and families of deployed military personnel.
What are the Advantages of Home Care Versus Senior Care in a Facility?
Freedom and independence. Seniors value their freedom, and they wish to be considered independent. Physically, in-home care can be better because it allows seniors to remain active longer and with greater independence than in a senior care facility. They want to be free to maintain their own schedules and a certain level of mobility. Emotionally, home care is preferable because some seniors who are put in nursing homes develop depression that can negatively impact their health and quality of life. Seniors love their homes and value staying at home. That is precisely what FirstLight of Bowie, Upper Marlboro, and Clinton allows them to do with our senior care and companion care services.
In some cases, families ask a FirstLight caregiver to come to a nursing home, assisted living facility, or retirement community to provide added companion care and assistance with tasks that may not be met in these institutions. This includes running errands, going to a bank, keeping doctor’s appointments, visiting a mall, buying clothes, or taking a trip to a favorite restaurant.
