How can Senior Home Care help me?
If you are the primary caregiver for your spouse, or elderly parents, we salute you! Being a family caregiver can be overwhelming, emotional and mentally exhausting.
The biggest benefit we hear time and time again it how much our Senior Care services have helped the spouse of the person needing care, or the adult children who can now focus more on their families. The time they spend with their parents, or spouse can now be spent as family. Our services are available 24/7 and the service schedule and care plan is customized to your individual needs.
FirstLight Can Help You Remain Independent
Our team of compassionate and trained caregivers can help accomplish this by assisting with the tasks that have become more difficult. A typical day might include helping your elderly family member to shower and dress in the morning; remind them to take their medication, making meals, go grocery shopping together, running errands, light housekeeping and doing some laundry.
Being able to maintain Activities of Daily Living are critical to remaining independent at home. Our caregivers can help with activities such as bathing, dressing, ambulation and toileting & incontinence care as your loved ones age. These tasks can become especially difficult for those with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s or any other progressive illnesses. Our compassionate caregivers are trained to handle all of these tasks with professionalism and respect.
No matter what level of service might be appropriate for your loved one, having eldercare in place will immediately provide social engagement which is missing from the lives of many older adults in our community. Our Caregivers will engage in meaningful conversation, read a story, share a joke or help with a puzzle’s, all while making sure that your family member is safe. These activities help keep the mind sharp, and also help fight negative emotions and depression.
Our team at FirstLight Home Care understand how Dementia or Alzheimer’s can affect each individual differently. It is a disease that can affect every part of a person’s life and leave them anxious, scared, withdrawn and depressed. Food’s that they once enjoyed are now tasteless. A normal day is now a jumbled mix of noise and confusion, and leads to further anxiety and isolation. Many times the first sign you may see is when Mom or Dad cannot find their way home from a local errand. Our unique person-first approach is built around the individual and not the disease itself. Critical to this is a care plan which focuses on routine and a consistent schedule. Click here to learn more about our unique program.
Fall prevention and Safety
Falls are the leading cause of hospitalization in older adults, with over 80% of falls happening in the bathroom. Contributing factors to fall are medications, poor lighting, vision impairments and general weakness. Simple tasks such as encouraging daily walks, reminders to repeat physical therapy exercises will greatly reduce the risk of falling. Our Caregivers can also help with maintaining a clutter free home and be there to provide assistance with ambulation and transfers as needed.

Medication Reminders and Assistance
Adhering to any prescribed medication schedule is essential to supporting a healthy and independent lifestyle. Our trained caregivers can ensure that all medications are taken on time and in accordance with the prescription.
Meal Preparation and Nutrition
Are you worried that your loved ones are no longer eating as they once did? Is there spoiled food in the refrigerator when you visit?
Many seniors, especially those who live alone struggle with preparing even the simplest of meals. Sometimes the first signs of Dementia are that Mom or Dad may simply forget to eat.
