Companion Care Services
Keeping You Independent
FirstLight provides a wide range of companion care services at home, in the hospital, or in healthcare facility settings in the Lexington, Versailles, Georgetown, and Nicholasville area. Everything from senior companionship to twenty-four-hour home care for a chronically ill or disabled loved one is covered by our services.
Regular Visits, Conversation, and Company
Having something – or someone – to look forward to can make a huge difference to someone who lives alone or provides home care for someone else. FirstLight Home Care can prepare a meal or simply provide conversation during a meal with your loved one.
FirstLight at home and companion caregivers in the Lexington area aren’t able to administer medications, but they are able to provide reminders to make sure your loved ones take their oral medications or injections when it’s time. We can also help with pre-measured medication and monitor for side effects of recently administered medication. Be sure to ask us about our special medical dispensers as well as additional home healthcare solutions.
Sometimes seniors don’t get the nutrition they need just because they don’t want to feel bothered with cooking a meal and cleaning up after. FirstLight’s Lexington, Versailles, Georgetown, and Nicholasville area at home and companion care providers can prepare meals that are healthy and provide sufficient nutrition. Not only will this ensure that medications can be taken as directed, it also adds joy to a senior’s day. Not only that, but our caregivers will even wash all the dishes!
A tidy home is a more joyful, comfortable home. FirstLight Home Care is here to help that be your loved one’s home by providing light housekeeping work including vacuuming, trash removal, dusting, organizing and tidying drawers, rooms and closets, and the light cleaning of bathrooms and kitchens.
Clothing, sheets, linens, and towels are all on our list of laundry items that we will wash, dry, fold, iron and put away. This particular service is invaluable to those who experience mobility problems, joint pain, or low energy.
Shopping, Errands, and Transportation
Filling prescriptions, taking care of dry cleaning, grocery shopping and even bringing in the mail are common tasks for those who want to stay independent, but running errands can be difficult for some. FirstLight home companions can provide these services, even going to a client’s favorite store for the best sales. Our caregivers can also provide incidental transportation for those who would like to ride along on errands or simply socialize at the store, all while making sure the client is well-cared for.
FirstLight’s in home caregivers will take clients to their favorite activities and are even happy to join in. Our ClientFirst matching system makes sure that caregivers and clients have shared interests, like nature classes, bingo, music, cards, and even games like scrabble.
Mail and Paperwork Organization
If a client would like, our care givers can assist with opening, reading, and organizing mail to help keep important documents and bills neatly tracked and accounted for.
Some clients would prefer to have homecare provided by a caregiver who resides in the home. FirstLight can provide special live-in arrangements on a permanent or short-term basis.
24-Hour Home Care
FirstLight Home Care can provide peace of mind to clients and their families through round-the-clock home care. We have a selection of high-quality personal emergency response system devices which, when combined with our web-based care monitoring tool called Client Care Access, is monitored 24 hours. Our caregivers are available at any time of the night or day so our clients can rest assured that our constant, vigilant care is at their service.
Family Respite Care
We can provide a much-needed break to primary caregivers to help relieve the stress of caring for a loved one. While we focus on the individual, we also understand that we are also caring for families. Our respite care services are available so you can take some well-deserved time off.
FirstLight Home Care provides compassionate companion and at home care for your loved one in Lexington, Versailles, Georgetown, Nicholasville, Chevy Chase, Downtown, Ashland Park, Idle Hour, Stonewall, Palomar, Keene Trace, and Hamburg.
