Companion Care Services
Keeping You Independent
No matter where you need us, we can assist with companion care. We can come to your home, to a hospital or residential care facility.

We can be there for surgical recovery or chronic illness. FirstLight Home Care is ready and willing to be there for you.
Regular Visits, Conversation, and Company
Our Mentor area companion and at home care service team provides companionship visits to our clients. If you or a loved one live alone it can make all the difference to have someone come in and visit the home, share a meal or just be a conversation partner. For people who are homebound through their own illness or that of caring for a relative, having outside contacts can make a world of difference to their moods and emotions. It’s exciting to have a visit to look forward to!
We offer a medication reminder service to our clients while we are in home with them. We are not able to administer the medication but can monitor the time of day and remind people to take their medications, and assist with setting up medication dispensers, and other medication reminders or solutions for medication issues. While in the home we can also monitor our clients for medication reactions.
We know that seniors often don’t get the best nutrition because of issues they have with standing up long enough to prepare a meal, and clean up after it, or difficulties actually doing their grocery shopping to ensure they have good and nutritious food in the pantry. Our FirstLight caregivers come into the home, prepare meals, ensure our clients eat on a regular basis, and do all the clean up afterwards. It’s a comfort and a joy to have a home prepared meal served to brighten up the day!
