If you require senior companion care services, all day home care, or at home caregiver services for someone you love that has a chronic illness or is recuperating from surgery, we can help.
Regular Visits, Conversation, and Company
Just receiving a guest occasionally can brighten someone’s day, especially if that person lives alone or is caring for their partner. Our FirstLight Home Care of Omaha Suburbs senior and companion service caregivers will share a meal or a conversation, giving the person someone-or something- to anticipate.
Even though our in home caregivers can’t administer medications, they can give regular reminders for both oral medications or injections. They can also help with pre-measured medication and will monitor for side effects or other complications. (Ask about our special medical dispensers and other useful home healthcare products.)
Getting the right nutrition can be difficult for some seniors who don’t want to prepare their own meal and clean up the mess when they are done. Our home companion caregiver will help ensure a healthy diet is maintained by preparing nutritious meals for your loved one. Afterwards they will even clean up all the mess!
Our FirstLight Home Care of Omaha Suburbs senior and companion caregivers can vacuum, empty the trash, dust, tidy up drawers, closets and rooms and will handle the day to day cleaning the kitchen and bathrooms require. This makes a home joyful and increases the comfort levels, and we are happy to assist!
Washing, drying, folding and ironing the laundry is only part of laundry services. We also put away bed linens, towels and clothing for clients. Not only will this in home care service save physical effort, it will also save time- especially for those with mobility issues, someone that tires easily, or suffers joint pain.
Shopping, Errands, and Transportation
In order to keep their independence at home, seniors need to be able to get their prescriptions, dry cleaning, or groceries. FirstLight in home companion caregivers will do all these things and will even shop at specified stores for a person’s favorite thing or required products. If they want to be taken out to socialize or to run errands, we will make sure the client is safe.
Seniors don’t want to give up their favorite activities such as bingo, an art class, or going to an event, our home caregivers do all this and are even happy to play a board game or cards. With our Client First matching system, FirstLight Home Care matches the right people together, so that caregivers and clients share interests.
Mail and Paperwork Organization
Keeping track of important documents and bills can be difficult. FirstLight can ease the burden and assist with mail and paperwork. Under the instruction of our clients, one of our home caregivers can help to open and read the mail.
Sometimes, seniors and their loved ones will prefer to have regular home care administered by a resident in the house. FirstLight will assist these special situations on a permanent or temporary basis.

Family Respite Care
