Extraordinary People. Exceptional Care
Providing The Best In-Home Care, Elderly Care & Senior Care
We share a common goal when it comes to providing for your senior family member: to provide them with the best quality of life and provide them the ability to enjoy independence as long as possible. What you have to say matters. That is why we listen to your input on providing the best 24/7 care for your loved one. We keep you involved so you know that our caregivers are providing for your family member in the same loving way that you would. It is important to us that both you and your loved one are comfortable with our caregivers. That is why we take the time to talk to and get to know your loved one.
Here are some of the ways that we can help:
At FirstLight Home Care of The Shoreline, our Branford, Wallingford and Guilford area home and senior care assistance services are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for both short-term and long-term needs. We provide non-medical in-home care for household duties such as laundry, cleaning and cooking. We also provide continence and toileting care, mobility assistance, bathing and hygiene and assistance with eating.
Our wide range of home and senior care assistance services in Branford, Wallingford, Guilford and additional Connecticut communities include assisting seniors who just need assistance staying in their homes, families who have disabilities or special needs, elderly with chronic illnesses, new moms, recovering from illnesses, recovering from surgery and families of deployed military personnel. FirstLight’s 24/7 care services are available to people of all ages, at any time you need us. We will even provide services to people who just need daily interaction and conversation with someone to improve happiness or quality of life.
What Are the Advantages of Home Care Versus Senior Care in a Facility?
To make it short: Freedom. Home care can create improvements both physically and emotionally. Physically, in-home care can allow seniors the freedom of mobility to remain active, longer. Their schedule of activities is done at their discretion, not at the discretion of others. Emotionally, in-home care can improve happiness and mood. Often seniors who are in nursing homes develop depression that has an impact on overall quality of life including health.
FirstLight caregivers can also come to nursing homes, retirement communities or assisted living facilities if necessary. Caregivers can provide additional assistance and care with activities that the institution may not be able to assist with. The added companion care that FirstLight provides includes taking your loved one to a doctor’s appointment, helping them run errands or even taking a trip to their favorite restaurant.
FirstLight Home Care of The Shoreline proudly serves the communities of Branford, Wallingford, Guilford, Madison, Westbrook, Old Saybrook, Saybrook, Lyme, Old Lyme and Essex with home and senior care assistance, including overnight care.
