Senior Care in Lexington
Extraordinary People. Exceptional Home Care.
You can count on FirstLight® Home Care of Lexington to provide your loved one with the support they need. At the same time, we always treat them with care, compassion and respect. It’s why so many families in the Lexington, Kentucky area turn to us for senior care. We are dedicated to helping seniors in need live their best life, wherever they call home.
Here are some of the ways that we can help:
What is the Difference Between Home Care and Home Health Care?
Home care is support and help provided on a non-medical basis. It includes meal preparation, housekeeping assistance and help with mobility, personal hygiene and transportation. It’s also designed to give your loved one the companionship and comfort they need. This is the kind of care we offer to seniors and others.
Home health care is medical in nature and delivered by a healthcare professional. Typically, a nurse, physical therapist or physician’s assistant will visit your loved one in the home to monitor their health, prescribe medications or design a diet or exercise program. Home health care is usually short-term and less frequent than home care.
What is Non-Medical Care?
Non-medical care, like the kind of care provided by FirstLight Home Care of Lexington, helps seniors and others remain more independent, while staying safe, at home. Beyond seniors, we also provide this care and support for disabled adults, those with dementia or chronic conditions, those recovering after surgery and veterans. We provide care on either a part-time or full-time basis.
What Are the Advantages of Home Care vs. Senior Care in a Community?
Oftentimes, an elderly or disabled adult wants to stay at home in familiar surroundings. It’s where they’re happiest and most comfortable. FirstLight Home Care of Lexington can help make that happen, while also providing the extra support that’s needed so they’re safe, too. This also ensures you and your family can get a respite break as well.
If, however, your loved one is in a nursing home or senior care community in the Lexington area, our caregivers are still available to help. From simply sitting and chatting to running errands or providing transportation, we can offer a range of services that can improve their quality of life.
How Do I Get Started with Senior Care?
Simply call FirstLight Home Care of Lexington to schedule an in-home senior care consultation. Our goal is to learn about your loved one, along with their needs, preferences and personality. We’re then able to personalize a plan and match them with a caregiver that’s an ideal fit.
