Here are some of the ways that we can help:
Our senior care and companion care services, available in Okemos and Lansing, covers a wide range of home care services, including light housekeeping, laundry, cooking, personal hygiene and bathing, continence and toileting care, mobility assistance, and eating assistance. Short and long-term care is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
While our specialty lies in senior care, our caregivers are here to help adults of all ages. We can also assist chronically ill patients, people who are recovering from a lengthy illness or surgery, new moms, loved ones with special needs or disability, and families of deployed military personnel. We are even available for simple conversation with loved ones who are often alone, ill, or just need someone to talk to.
What Are the Advantages of Home Care Versus Senior Care in a Facility?
Most people agree that being able to remain at home for as long as possible is what they hope for. Our services allow our patients to maintain their freedom and live on their own schedules. Having your life turned upside down by moving into a facility can often cause depression. Depression affects every part of a person’s life, and more importantly, their health.
When it is no longer feasible for a loved one to remain at home, we are often asked to visit them in other facilities. We are happy to provide companionship and added care to loved ones living in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and retirement communities. We can arrange to drive them to doctor appointments, take them out to dinner, or run other errands. Often we hear of family members worrying their loved one is lonely. Life can get busy, and we understand this. Your loved one may need errands run or to be taken to an appointment – All of which we can help with. They may simply need someone to stop by and talk with them. Knowing your loved one is in good hands with a caregiver from FirstLight can be very comforting.
