Companion Care Services
Keeping You Independent
Companion care and at home care services in Glendale, South Pasadena and La Cañada Flintridge, are designed to improve the quality of life of your loved one. From elderly companion care for those who are in the hospital to family members recovering from surgery to those who may require 24-hour care, there is a solution available through FirstLight Home Care of Glendale.
Regular Visits, Conversation, and Company
We all need something to look forward to in our day! Our caregivers can stop by to visit your loved one to enjoy conversation and perhaps a shared meal, which may be the highlight of the day for someone living alone or going through a tough time.
FirstLight Home Care does not provide direct medical care, but our caregivers can provide in-home reminders to take daily medications and injections. They can also monitor your loved one for side effects of medication, which can be helpful following surgery or when beginning a new medication regimen.
As our loved ones age, it can become increasingly difficult for them to prepare meals and clean dishes. For this reason, many seniors are lacking important nutrition in their diets. With FirstLight Home Care of Glendale’s companion care and at home care services in South Pasadena, La Cañada Flintridge, La Crescenta and surrounding areas, your loved one can enjoy a meal in the comfort of their own home. Our caregivers remove the difficulty associated with cooking and cleaning and ensuring that your loved one is eating nutritious and delicious food, as well as enjoying conversation over a shared meal.
Seniors who suffer from mobility issues may have a hard time maintaining a tidy home. Sometimes, the care and upkeep required to keep house can become too much. That’s where FirstLight comes in to help with tidying rooms, dusting, sweeping, vacuuming, organizing, maintaining clean kitchens and bathrooms, and taking out the trash. Your loved one will be able to enjoy a safe, clean home filled with joy and conversation thanks to FirstLight’s caregivers.
Home care companions are happy to help launder, dry, iron, and put away clothing, linens, and towels in order to help those who may have mobility issues or other pains that make laundry difficult.
Shopping, Errands, and Transportation
For seniors living at home, some of the most difficult tasks can be the most necessary ones: grocery shopping, picking up prescriptions, and going to doctor’s appointments. Our home care companions can accompany your loved one on their errands around town, providing transportation and socialization. This enables seniors to maintain their independence while you ensure their safety and well-being.
Just like your loved one, our caregivers have hobbies and activities that they enjoy. At FirstLight, our ClientFirst model matches caregivers with clients based in part on shared interests. This means that whether your loved one enjoys board games at home or concerts at the park, our caregivers will be right there with them to join in the fun!
Mail and Paperwork Organization
The amount of mail and paperwork that can accumulate in a home is sometimes overwhelming. Our home care companions will assist with reading and sorting mail, bills, and other important paperwork to help keep affairs in order- at the direction of your loved one.
For some clients, extra care and companionship is needed. In these special cases, FirstLight can arrange a live-in caregiver on a temporary or permanent basis, based on the needs of your loved one. Contact us today to see if our office can accommodate your needs.
24-Hour Home Care
FirstLight Home Care is equipped with all of the technology that can enhance home care for your loved one. Our Client Care Access tool is a web-based monitoring system that ensures 24/7 support whenever needed. Caregivers are available any time, day or night, and emergency services can be contacted quickly using personal emergency response devices. These technologies allow your family to feel secure in the knowledge that help is available at a moment’s notice.
Family Respite Care
It is no surprise that being a caregiver for a loved one can quickly become a full-time job. For the family members caring for an elderly individual or someone with special needs, it is crucial to take breaks and spend time on self-care. Our respite services can bridge the gap, allowing you to take a break while we provide excellent care for your loved one in your absence.
