Companion Care Services
Keeping You Independent
FirstLight Home Care of NW Dayton has a wide variety of at home care services available in Vandalia, Englewood, Dayton, and Clayton that are considered to be companion care. These services can be delivered to individuals in hospitals or healthcare facility settings. Services we provide include (but are not limited to): companion care, round-the-clock home care, or at-home caregiver services for anyone in Vandalia, Englewood or Clayton who may be experiencing a chronic illness or recovering from surgery.
Regular Visits, Conversation, and Company
For chronically ill patients, just having visitors for companionship can make a huge difference in their quality of life. Living alone can be difficult, and it can be difficult for a spouse to care for an ill loved one, too. FirstLight of NW Dayton can offer the extra companion care and home care services in Vandalia, Englewood and Clayton for the ill individual, and perhaps a break for the spouse or loved one.
Although FirstLight caregivers cannot give medications to individuals, they can provide often needed reminders for necessary medications or injections. They can help with any pre-measured medications, as well as help to monitor for possible side effects that need medical attention. FirstLight also can offer special home healthcare technology solutions, like special medical dispensers that help lessen the burden of administering medications.
Elderly individuals often fail to maintain adequate nutrition because they just don’t feel like preparing a proper meal for themselves. FirstLight companions can help with this, by preparing regular, healthy meals, and ensuring proper use of prescribed medications. Sometimes, just by having a companion to dine with helps seniors feel better. Especially when caregivers take care of all of the meal clean up, too!
Housekeeping can be another challenge for the elderly or chronically ill. Our caregivers are fully capable of handling light housekeeping duties, including laundry, trash removal, washing dishes, keeping kitchens and bathrooms tidy, and more. Living in a tidy home makes anyone feel better!
When laundry is too big of a chore to tackle, let our FirstLight caregivers help. Having clean, folded, and organized clothing, towels, and bed linens is essential for good health. Our in-home services save time and effort for those who experience pain or fatigue easily.
Shopping, Errands, and Transportation
Having a FirstLight companion available to take care of simple shopping, picking up prescriptions, or running errands can help seniors or chronically ill individuals manage their daily life better. These services can be provided directly or we can offer transportation services for those who prefer to maintain more independence but require easier access. We can also provide transportation for social activities, which also helps to maintain the quality of life and provide joy to clients.
Does your loved one simply need a ride to their favorite activity? Is it too difficult to get to bingo or senior gatherings? Let our FirstLight of NW Dayton companions take care of the transportation responsibilities, so that everyone can enjoy their favorite activities. Caregivers can be matched by interest, making it even more enjoyable.
Mail and Paperwork Organization
Keeping track of important documents and bills can be overwhelming for many clients. With direction from clients and families, our caregivers can assist with organizing household paperwork and mail, ensuring that important documents are not overlooked or bills are not being paid.
24-Hour Home Care
FirstLight Home Care offers many technological solutions to the home care industry. With highly trained personnel offering a variety of personal emergency response systems, as well as a secure web-based monitoring system, known as Client Care Access, we are able to respond at any hour—day or night. This 24-hour service can help clients and families rest easy knowing any emergency can be handled promptly and appropriately.
Family Respite Care
Caring for a chronically ill or elderly loved one can be stressful. Our caregivers are skilled when it comes to providing important breaks in the caregiving—without causing a break in the important care required. Caring for families is just as important to us as caring for our clients.
