FirstLight Home Care has the ability to provide comprehensive non-medical in-home care to your loved one, 24 hours a day, every day of the year with our Columbia home and senior care assistance services. These services include everything from assisting with personal needs such as toileting care and assistance with eating, to the more mundane household tasks such as cooking, cleaning, and laundry.
Though many of our clients are seniors who have chronic illnesses, or just need some extra assistance with daily tasks, we are available to help people of a wide variety of ages and stages of life. For example, we can provide care for families who have a member with a special need or disability, families with a new baby, families with a parent who has been deployed, people who are recovering from a recent medical procedure, and even people who just want a friendly presence to accompany them throughout their days.
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 a wide variety of reasons why in-home senior care assistance services is preferable to care in a senior facility in Columbia. On one hand, it allows seniors to maintain a sense of normalcy. They can stick to their accustomed schedules, which will give them emotional stability and reduce their likeliness of developing depression, a common effect of being placed in a nursing home. Furthermore, in-home care allows seniors the physical benefit of remaining far more active than they would be in a nursing home.
Sometimes, however, a nursing home, assisted living facility, or retirement community is the best option for a loved one. In those cases, FirstLight still can provide a caregiver to supplement an elder’s care. A standard nursing home may not be able to meet the more specific needs of an elderly person, needs such as running errands, accompaniment to medical appointments, or even making an outing to a special restaurant or store. This is where FirstLight can step in with in-home care services and raise the quality of your loved one’s life.
