Companion Care Services

Keeping You Independent

FirstLight of Mission Viejo elderly and companion care services are available for seniors, those suffering from long-term illnesses, individuals participating in rehabilitation services, and those with disabilities in their Laguna Hills or Dana Point homes, at hospitals, and in healthcare facilities, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Regular Visits, Conversation, and Company

Whether a meal or a conversation, spending time with someone who lives alone or who is caring full-time for a loved one may be the one bright spot in their day.  FirstLight Home Care companions delight in periodic visits with seniors and shut-ins.

Medication Reminders

FirstLight of Mission Viejo elderly, senior and in-home caregivers can remind individuals in Laguna Hills, Dana Point and other Southern California communities, to take their medications, and they can assist clients with medications that have been premeasured. They are also trained to watch for side effects and medical emergencies. Be sure to ask your FirstLight caregiver to describe our special medical dispensers and helpful home healthcare technology products.

Meal Preparation

It is extremely common for seniors to tire of meal preparation. It is equally common for them to simply have no appetite or sense of thirst. This can be the result of medications and some medical conditions. When they repeatedly skip meals, they fail to take in enough nutrients to stay healthy. A FirstLight in-home companion will prepare healthy meals ensuring enough nutrition to allow medications to be properly absorbed by the system. Bonus:  The caregiver leaves a shiny kitchen behind!

Light Housekeeping

Cleaning house becomes a major chore as we age, and accidents can happen when a house is cluttered. FirstLight of Mission Viejo elderly, senior and companion caregivers are available not only to keep your loved one company, but they will perform light housekeeping duties (dusting, vacuuming, taking out the trash). They can organize and tidy spaces that have gotten out of control. Kitchens and bathrooms will shine when they are finished. You will have peace of mind knowing your loved one is healthy and safe in a neat and clean home.

Laundry Services

Does your loved one suffer from painful joints, issues with mobility, or severe weakness? FirstLight caregivers are available to help wash, dry, fold and iron laundry. They’ll put clothing away and wash and replace bed linens and towels. Not only does your loved one have someone to talk to, but their laundry has been taken care of as well!

Shopping, Errands, and Transportation

When seniors are no longer able to drive, living at home becomes much more challenging. They still have groceries to buy, prescriptions to pick up, and doctors to see. They may want to continue their social events as well.  Your FirstLight in-home caregiver will be happy to assist with transportation services. Being able to continue doing these things for themselves provides a feeling of independence they would not otherwise have.

Recreational Activities

Recreational activities keep us sound of mind and body. If your loved one is still involved in social activities, ask about the FirstLight ClientFirst Matching System. We know all our clients favorite activities. If your loved one wants to go to Bingo, we will match them with a caregiver who loves Bingo as well. Want to go bird-watching? We’ll find a nature lover who will enjoy the outing as much as your loved one. Someone to go with you makes the activity that much more enjoyable.

Mail and Paperwork Organization

We know bill paying and document organization is a frustrating chore. FirstLight Home Care of Mission Viejo elderly, senior and companion caregivers are experts in document processing and organization can help your loved one stay on top of the bills and the filing. They will also help by opening and reading mail to your loved one, if needed.

Live-In Services

Should you need someone to live in with your loved one, either temporarily (i.e., a week of respite care) or more permanently, FirstLight Home care can help you find a trustworthy live-in companion.

24-Hour Home Care

FirstLight Home Care is an industry leader in in-home care technology. We offer high-quality personal emergency response system devices, monitored 24/7. In addition, we provide a secure, Web-based care monitoring tool called Client Care Access. This tool allows family to view their loved one’s schedule and send feedback to caregivers online. Contact us any time, day or night.

Family Respite Care

Most of FirstLight’s services are directed toward the disabled. Respite care services, however, are specifically for primary caregivers themselves. Whether you need temporary live-in care or just a few hours to take care of business, the FirstLight team can provide a much-needed break to first-line caregivers (spouses, children, relatives, or friends). Although our primary client is your loved one, time away is essential for primary caregivers. When you need a guilt-free break, call your FirstLight team!

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 exceptional elderly and senior companion care services.
