Extraordinary People. Exceptional Care
Providing The Best In-Home Care, Companion Care & Senior Care
When receiving senior care and companion care services for your elderly family member in Clearwater, Largo, Seminole, or surrounding Pinellas County community, it is important to find someone who understands that they are special individuals with specific needs. Our professionals at FirstLight take the time to speak with the family as well as the loved one. By doing so, we gain an understanding of what is needed and expected. We also place emphasis on bonding with your loved one to gain trust and assurance that we truly care. Our priority is to be an extension of you by helping them live a quality life without the fears of being dependent on others. Feedback will be provided to you to ensure that you remain informed. We want you to always have a sense of comfort when you are not there, knowing that they are loved and being treated well.
Here are some of the ways that we can help:
Why Home Care from FirstLight?
FirstLight offers a wide variety of non-medical services. These services include assisting with personal care needs (bathing, personal hygiene, continence issues and toileting); dietary needs (cooking, meal preparation and eating assistance); household duties (laundry and cleaning) as well as assistance with mobility. Depending on the specific needs, we are available to assist you for short or long durations, 24 hours a day and every day of the year. Not only are we available for senior care and companion care at any time and any place you need us in Clearwater, Largo, Seminole or surrounding area, we are also here to be a confidant for those who just need to talk to someone who is willing to listen. We specialize in caring for the elderly, but also assist adults of all ages with disabilities or special needs, those who have post-surgical diagnoses, new mothers who need extra help, those suffering from chronic illnesses and family members of military personnel who are currently deployed.
What Are the Advantages of Home Care Versus Senior Care in a Facility?
At FirstLight, we provide your loved one with the freedom to remain in their own homes, through in home care, while receiving the care they need. This means that they are given one-on-one attention and the comfort of being in a familiar environment. These factors alone can reduce the possibility of depression and emotional instability that too often is associated with nursing home or skilled facility placement which could impact their overall health. At home, we help them continue their familiar schedule and activities.
In the event that your loved one is in a skilled care facility due to nursing needs, assisted living or retirement, we can still be of help to them and you. Some facilities may not offer the additional services that you prefer such as a friendly companion to keep them company or even to take them outside of their daily environment to eat lunch at a restaurant of their choice. We understand the enjoyment that may come with going into the community for the day to run errands or even to accompany them as a friend to a doctor’s appointment.
