Senior Care in Columbus
Home Care Services for the Elderly
At FirstLight® Home Care of Greater Columbus, we’re here for you and your loved one to provide the assistance you both need. Whether you have an aging parent or disabled relative, we offer senior care across the Columbus, Ohio area that has one goal in mind: to help your family member stay safe and independent, while living their best life.
To do that, we take time to listen. We want to learn about their preferences and needs, so we can personalize a plan that’s right for them. Every step of the way, you can rest assured we’re caring for them like a member of our own family, giving you peace of mind.
Here are some of the ways that we can help:
What is the Difference Between Home Care and Home Healthcare?
Home healthcare is typically delivered by a nurse or physician assistant and involves the administration of treatment or adjustment of medications. Likewise, other home healthcare providers, such as physical therapists, can work with your loved one to design an exercise plan that keeps them mobile.
Home care, on the other hand, is a non-medical service that offers access to caregivers who can assist in many ways. For instance, while a caregiver can’t prescribe treatments, they can offer medication reminders to ensure they’re taken on time. They can also help an individual with mobility, transportation or help around the house. Home care can be provided around-the-clock or as a respite break for family caregivers.
What is Non-Medical Care?
At FirstLight Home Care of Greater Columbus, we offer non-medical care to seniors across the area. This means our services aren’t medical in nature, but provide the assistance an individual needs to remain comfortable, safe and happy, wherever they call home.
Our services include help with household chores, meal preparation, mobility, bathing and dressing, transportation and more. We also provide the companionship, friendship and conversation that is so often craved.
What are the Advantages of Home Care Versus Care in a Senior Living Community?
Even when an individual requires assistance, they want to remain in their own home, where they feel secure. Home care enables seniors to stay in familiar surroundings, maintain their routine and gain more freedom, all while achieving a higher quality of life. This is better for them physically and emotionally, as well.
While FirstLight Home Care of Greater Columbus primarily provides senior care in the home, we can also support your loved one who is in a nursing home, assisted living or retirement community. We can help with tasks from running errands and taking a loved one to their doctor’s appointment to simply talking and listening.
