Providing The Best In-Home Care, Elderly Care & Senior Care
You know your parent or elderly loved one better than anyone, so when you decide to let us help provide senior care for them, we listen to what you have to say. Our goal is the same as yours: to help them enjoy the best quality of life and enjoy independence for as long as possible. We take the time to talk to your loved one so they feel comfortable with us and our caregiving role in their life. We keep you informed and involved in order to offer peace-of-mind that he or she is being cared for in the loving way you would care for them yourself.
Here are some of the ways that we can help:

What Are the Advantages of Home Care Versus Senior Care in a Facility?
In a word: freedom. According to AARP, 92 percent of people over the age of 65 want to stay in their homes as long as possible. Why? Because they enjoy their independence. Physically, in-home care can be better because it allows seniors to remain active longer. They can maintain their own schedules and a certain level of mobility. Emotionally it can be better too, because seniors who are put in nursing homes are more likely to develop depression that can negatively impact their health and quality of life.
In some cases, families ask a FirstLight caregiver to come to a nursing home, assisted living facility, or retirement community to provide added companion care and assistance with tasks that may not be met in these institutions. This includes things such as running errands, going to doctor’s appointments, or taking a trip to a favorite restaurant.
