Extraordinary People. Exceptional Care
Providing The Best In-Home Care, Elderly Care & Senior Care
When you engage FirstLight Home Care of Mission Viejo to assist in caring for your senior parent or loved one in Laguna Hills, Dana Point or any other Mission Viejo communities, our goals become one: to enable him or her to reach the highest quality of life and independence possible. Because you are the resident expert on your loved one, we will be listening to what you tell us as we prepare their plan of care.
Here are some of the ways that we can help:
Our Mission Viejo senior and companion caregivers in Laguna Hills, Dana Point and additional California communities, begin by having simple conversations with your loved one, building trust and making them feel comfortable sharing with them. We keep the family informed as we progress, offering peace of mind in the knowledge that FirstLight is caring for your loved one just like you would.
FirstLight Home Care offers non-medical care in the comfort of your home. Our services include:
- Assistance with household tasks; i.e., cooking, cleaning, and laundry,
- Personal care assistance; i.e., bathing, personal hygiene, and toileting care,
- Mobility assistance, and
- Feeding assistance.
Short-term and long-term care is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. With simple household assistance, many individuals can stay at home instead of requiring long-term stays in rehabilitation facilities. Our senior and companion care services, available in Mission Viejo to adults of all ages, include care for prolonged illness and disabilities, recuperation from long-term illnesses like cancer or surgery, help for new moms or military families whose loved ones are on deployment, or companion care for individuals suffering from depression who appreciate a friendly person to spend time with.
What Are the Advantages of Home Care Versus Senior Care in a Facility?
As we age and our memories wane, we depend on familiar sights, sounds, and faces to make us feel secure. It is emotionally soothing to know your surroundings. When seniors are home alone, they must make the effort to care for themselves. No one will bring them a glass of water. No one will help them get meals. No one will push them to the bathroom. Therefore, they remain active longer. Facilities are active, noisy places, and seniors often feel overwhelmed with the confusion surrounding them. At home, they can relax by a window and watch the birds in the trees, perfectly content in their solitude. Facilities often try to “encourage” everyone to do the same thing, which can be frustrating to a senior who doesn’t want to take part.
Many facilities are so short-staffed that their clients do not receive all the assistance they need. In those cases, families may ask a FirstLight of Mission Viejo senior and companion caregiver to visit the nursing home, assisted living facility, or retirement community to provide the companion care or help they may not be receiving from these institutions. FirstLight is often called upon to run errands, take someone to a doctor’s appointment, or simply to visit a favorite restaurant.
FirstLight of Mission Viejo provides Rancho Mission Viejo, Ladera Ranch, Laguna Hills, Dana Point, Lake Forest, El Toro, San Clemente, San Juan Capistrano, Coto de Caza, Rancho Santa Margarita, Irvine and other communities of California with senior and companion care services.
