Here are some of the ways that we can help:
How Can Home Care Help?
Our caregivers specialize in non-medical in-home care. That means that we can help with light housekeeping tasks like cooking, cleaning, and laundry or more individualized needs like assistance with bathing and personal care, incontinence and help getting to the toilet, mobility assistance and feeding. FirstLight Home Care provides short-term and long-term senior home care and companion care on your schedule, every day of the year.
Although we specialize in senior home care, we can provide care to people of all ages and needs. This could include a family member with special needs or a disability, people who need short term help while recovering from a surgery or illness, a mother who just gave birth and needs some help around the house, of the families of deployed military personnel. Our companion care services are even available for people who need a little more socialization in their lives.
What Are the Advantages of Home Care Versus Senior Care in a Facility?
Both physically and emotionally, it’s better for a senior to get in home care than to move into a facility. The keyword is freedom. Living at their own home and keep a senior active longer, which helps them retain mobility. Being in charge of your own schedule, such as what time meals will be served, helps seniors retain independence. Emotionally, seniors avoid the feelings of isolation and displacement that can come with moving into a facility.
Sometimes, families decide that a facility is really the best option for a loved one. FirstLight is able to help out in facilities, too. Nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or retirement communities can be a part of your loved one’s senior care and companion care plan. We can provide companion care and help with the various activities of daily living that might not be provided for in these facilities. Often, that includes tasks like taking care of errands or stopping for lunch at a favorite restaurant. FirstLight is the most trusted company to carry the best senior care and companion care services in San Rafael, Santa Rosa, Napa and all Marin County neighborhood.
