Extraordinary People. Exceptional Care
Providing The Best In-Home Care, Elderly Care & Senior Care
No one knows your loved one better than you, which is why we take everything you tell us into consideration when it comes to deciding what care plan will work best for them. We have the same desire as you; we want your loved to be able to live independently and still have a high-quality life. We spend time getting to know your loved one, so that they become familiar with their new caregivers. At FirstLight of NW and South Tampa, we work hard to keep you informed about the home and senior care assistance services your loved one in Westchase, Town ‘N’ Country, or Carrollwood is receiving, so you can rest assured that they are being cared for the way they deserve.
Here are some of the ways that we can help:
One option that is worth exploring at FirstLight Home Care is non-medical care, which covers a variety of household tasks like meal prep, cleaning, and laundry. Other non-medical services we provide include bathing, toileting care, eating assistance, and mobility assistance. Choose between short-term and long-term home care plans. We work around your schedule as we are available every single day of the year for twenty-four hours of the day. There are no limitations as to who can get these services, when the services are available, and where these services are administered. We are here to help adults of all ages with chronic illnesses, seniors who need extra help in order to continue living in their homes, families of deployed members of the military who need a helping hand, new mothers, families who have someone with a disability, or individuals recovering from surgery or particular illnesses. Even if you just need someone to listen to you and show they care, we have you covered.
What Are the Advantages of Home Care Versus Senior Care in a Facility?
The biggest advantage of home and senior care assistance services from FirstLight of NW and South Tampa is freedom. Seniors in Westchase, Town ‘N’ Country, and Carrollwood have more chances to stay physically active with an in-home setting. They choose their own schedule and have some element of control over their mobility. It is also better for their mental health. Unfortunately, many seniors who are put in nursing homes suffer from depression, which has a negative impact on their lives and can lower their quality of life. It’s not uncommon for families to ask FirstLight to send a caregiver to their loved one who has been placed in a retirement community, nursing home, or assisted living area. This provides an extra layer of care for your loved ones. Often times, these caregivers will provide services like running errands or taking your loved one out to their favorite restaurants. These accommodations are not generally offered by those senior care facilities.
FirstLight Home Care of NW and South Tampa provides the Hillsborough County communities of Westchase, Town ‘N’ Country, Carrollwood, Hyde Park, Citrus Park, Keystone, and Greater Northdale with home and senior care assistance services.
