Extraordinary People. Exceptional Care
Providing The Best In-Home Care, Elderly Care & Senior Care
Each elderly individual has their own unique needs, difficulties, and expectations for care. FirstLight Home Care of Clarksville and Hopkinsville home and senior care assistants provide trained caregivers that listen to you in order to best understand these specifications, with the ultimate goal of ensuring high-quality care in the comfort of the home. Not only do we assist with mobility and hygiene care, but we take the time to get to know you and your loved one so that we can offer companionship and conversation that can improve quality of life.
Our Clarksville, Pleasant View and Hopkinsville home and senior care assistance services are not just seniors that require some extra help. Everyone from individuals with chronic illness or disabilities to new moms or military families can benefit from some companionship and help around the house. For some, Home Care may be one of the only factors that can help them stay in their homes rather than moving to a care facility.
Here are some of the ways that we can help:
What Are the Advantages of Home Care Versus Senior Care in a Facility?
There are many reasons that seniors may prefer to stay in their homes. For some, home care can help them remain active for a longer period of time, as the individual mobility assistance can keep seniors on their feet and mobile rather than being stationary in a home. Additionally, seniors can set their own schedule, choose their own food and activities, and avoid emotional difficulties such as depression that can arise from living in a nursing home.
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 things such as running errands, going to doctor’s appointments, or taking a trip to a favorite restaurant.
If your loved one is already in a home, FirstLight caregivers can still provide assistance. For example, caregivers can bring seniors out to doctors’ appointments, help them to run errands, or take short trips to see friends or family outside of the facility. They are able to help fill in the gaps that facilities may not be able to cover due to understaffing. Firstlight Home Care serves the communities of Clarksville, Pleasant View and Hopkinsville with home and senior care assistance services.
