Senior Care in Ardmore
Extraordinary People. Exceptional Home Care.
You know your loved one best. It’s why at FirstLight® Home Care of the Main Line, we take time to listen to you and learn about your needs. Our goal is to provide personalized senior care to individuals across the Ardmore, Pennsylvania area. With help from our caring team, your loved one will be able to live a fuller life, safely and happily, 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 includes support with housekeeping, meal preparation, personal hygiene, transportation, mobility and other daily tasks. It also includes companion care, so social and emotional needs are met. Home care can be scheduled for specific routines, long- or short-term, and typically from 2-hours to around-the-clock shifts. At FirstLight Home Care of the Main Line, we’re a leading provider of this kind of care.
Home health care, on the other hand, is medical care provided by a licensed nurse or therapist. These healthcare professionals will visit to monitor health, prescribe medications or change treatment protocols. Typically, home health care is short-term, involving targeted and infrequent visits.
What is Non-Medical Care?
Non-medical care is help, comfort, and support provided to improve an individual’s quality of life and independence. For instance, at FirstLight Home Care of the Main Line, we can step in if a loved one is recovering from surgery, has a disability, or is facing a condition like dementia.
Our caregivers’ goal is to make life easier for your loved one and for you. We can do this with personal care, companion care, respite care, travel companion support, and other senior care services available in the Ardmore area.
What are the Advantages of Home Care vs. Senior Care in a Community?
Many times, seniors want to remain in their own home. If that’s possible, FirstLight Home Care of the Main Line can help keep them safe, happy and comfortable. We’ll ensure they’re maintaining their usual schedule, while also supporting them where they need it–whether it’s with bathing, dressing, mobility, or in another area.
Sometimes, though, a family member needs to be in a healthcare setting. When this happens, we can provide support there too. Our caregivers can help run errands, provide your loved one with companionship and conversation, and even take them out on excursions or to appointments.
How Do I Get Started with Senior Care?
Getting started with senior care in the Ardmore area is as easy as calling FirstLight Home Care of the Main Line. We will set up a complimentary in-home consultation with your loved one so we can learn about their unique situation, as well as their personality and preferences. This helps us to create a custom care plan and also match them with the best caregiver.
