Companion Care Services
Keeping You Independent
FirstLight Home Care of Brighton provides a wide range of companion care and at home care services to communities across Howell, Chelsea, and Dexter that are offered at home, in the hospital, or even in a healthcare facility. We are here to help whether you need elderly companion care services, 24-hour home care, or at-home caregiver services for someone who may be ill or recovering.
Regular Visits, Conversation, and Company
Simply having a visitor every once in a while to share a conversation or meal with can really uplift someone’s spirits who may be living alone or perhaps caring for an ailing spouse. FirstLight Home Care companion care for our clients in Brighton, Chelsea, Howell and surrounding Michigan communities means that someone can come provide not only a companion, but something to look forward to as well.
The in-home caregivers from FirstLight can provide regular reminders for oral medication or injection, as well as assistance with pre-measured medication and monitoring of side effects or other medical issues involved. However, our in-home caregivers cannot administer the client’s medication. (Ask about our special medical dispensers and other helpful home healthcare technology solutions.)
Many seniors fail to get adequate nutrition due to not wanting to prepare a meal for themselves and clean up afterwards. One of our at-home care companions can regularly prepare meals that are filled with nutrients in order to allow our seniors to live a happy, healthy lifestyle. Our caregivers will handle all clean up as well to provide a sense of joy to your elderly family member(s)!
Our in-home caregivers from FirstLight Home Care of Brighton can help with any light housekeeping including vacuuming, dusting, trash removal, tidying rooms, as well as the light cleaning of kitchens and bathrooms. This service will provide a much more comfortable home for your loved one!
A simple task such as laundry can bring on mobility issues, fatigue, and even joint pain, especially for the elderly. FirstLight companion caregivers can wash, dry, fold, and put away all clothing, bed linens, and towels for your loved one. This way, our clients save any unnecessary physical exertion and stress involved with these tasks.
Shopping, Errands, and Transportation
Our in-home companion caregivers can help with these tasks that can be stressful for those who are independent at home. These services include grocery shopping, picking up prescriptions, getting dry cleaning, or any other common errands. Our caregivers can even shop at specific stores for a client’s needed items. They may also provide transportation for clients who would like to get out of the house themselves to run errands or socialize with friends and family, all while ensuring the well-being of the client.
FirstLight provides caregivers who will take their client on all kinds of recreational activities. These may include a nature class, bingo, a concert; the limit does not exist! We even provide our ClientFirst matching program, which will help match a client to a caregiver with similar interests and hobbies.
Mail and Paperwork Organization
FirstLight Home Care will take away all concerns when it comes to staying organized and keeping track of bills, important documents, and even keeping all papers and mail sorted. With the approval and direction from clients, our in-home caregivers can also assist with opening and reading the client’s mail for them.
FirstLight Home Care can provide extended regular home care by a trustworthy caregiver who will reside in the home. We can provide these special arrangements either on a temporary or more permanent basis.
24-Hour Home Care
FirstLight Home Care can provide round-the-clock care to give the client and their family a sense of comfort in the fact that they are never alone. Our in-home caregivers as well as technology support are available at any hour of the day and during the night. As an industry leader in technology for in-home care across Brighton, Howell, Chelsea, and other Michigan communities, FirstLight offers a selection of high-quality personal emergency response system devices. Also, we provide a secure, Web-based care monitoring tool called Client Care Access.
Family Respite Care
Our respite care services give you the time off that you need from being the primary caregiver of someone. Tending to a loved one can be exhausting, and we understand this at FirstLight. While we aim to serve the needs of our individual clients, it is crucial to us to care for the families as well.
