How Can Home Care Help?
FirstLight Home Care provides senior care and companion care in Scranton and Dunmore to address non-medical, in-home care needs of daily living. This includes housekeeping duties, meal preparation, laundry, and assistance with bathing and hygiene, incontinence and toileting care, and feeding assistance. Whether you need short-term home care or long-term residence, we provide round the clock care, 24 hours a day, and 7 days a week.
We provide home care services to all adults regardless of age when they’re facing uphill challenges. If you’re a senior needing assistance but prefer to remain at home, we can help. We’re here for elderly people with chronic conditions, anyone who is disabled or has special needs, individuals recuperating after surgery, new moms needing a support system, and we support families of deployed servicemen. We’re also happy to work with anyone who needs companionship and wants to talk and have some joy brought back into their lives.
What Are the Advantages of Home Care Versus Senior Care in a Facility?
Simply, it’s freedom. On a physical level, in-home care has the advantage of enabling seniors to stay active longer. They are comfortable maintaining their own schedules and have some freedom of mobility. Emotionally, seniors thrive better at home. Those who move to nursing homes are prone to depression, which eventually decreases their wellbeing.
On occasion, FirstLight caregivers have been asked by families to visit senior care facilities and provide loved one with services not typically offered by senior care institutions. Caregiver duties can include companion care, assistance with running errands, dining out, and getting to medical appointments.
For senior care and companion care you can rely on in Scranton or Dunmore, turn to FirstLight Home Care.
