Companion Care Services
Keeping You Independent
FirstLight Home Care offers a wide variety of San Mateo, Redwood City, and Belmont companion care and at home services for the elderly, chronically ill, or those recovering from surgery. From 24-hour home care to a few hours in a hospital or healthcare facility, we can help.
Regular Visits, Conversation, and Company
Companionship is one of the most important needs we have as human beings. A simple conversation, a shared meal, or just having someone there for moral support, can make a significant difference in the life of someone who lives alone or is caring for a loved one. Let FirstLight Home Care brighten your day with our companion care and at home services.
It’s not always easy to remember to take necessary medications. Sometimes you or your loved one needs a little help remembering. While our caregivers are not permitted to administer medication, FirstLight Home Care can provide reminders and assist with pre-measured medication and monitor for side-effects or other issues. We also offer special medical dispensers and other home healthcare technology. This is just one of many ways that our companion care and at home services can help you or a loved one.
Healthy meals take effort to prepare and clean up after. Sometimes this can be the difference between eating right and failing to get good nutrition for seniors. FirstLight Home Care caregivers can prepare healthy meals to help maintain nutrition, clean up the dishes afterward, and bring peace of mind to you and your loved one.
Our caregivers at FirstLight Home Care can help around the house with light housekeeping such as dusting, vacuuming, tidying, removing trash, and light cleaning of kitchens and bathrooms. If you or a loved one needs a helping hand around the house, we’re here to help.
FirstLight Home Care services include laundry services like washing, drying, folding, and ironing of clothing, towels, and linens, saving clients with mobility challenges time and physical effort.
Shopping, Errands, and Transportation
When it’s difficult to get around town for errands such as picking up groceries or prescriptions, help with transportation can prove a huge relief. FirstLight Home Care caregivers provide transit services for errands, appointments, and even to just get out and socialize, which is important for overall well-being.
Our ClientFirst matching system pairs caregivers to our clients’ interests, providing a companion to accompany them to social events such as card games, concerts, and bingo.
Mail and Paperwork Organization
Simple tasks such as opening and organizing mail and other paperwork and keeping track of bills and important documents can become more challenging when a person is coping with the early stages of dementia or a disability. FirstLight Home Care caregivers can help with this sort of task, at the direction of our clients.
Everyone’s needs are unique, and some clients need home care services around the clock. FirstLight Home Care’s live-in services provide qualified caregivers who can reside in the home, whether you need temporary assistance or more permanent help.
24-Hour Home Care
An emergency response system in the home means our in-home caregivers are available any time, day or night, providing you with peace of mind. With our web-based care monitoring tool, Client Care Access, you can rest assured you or your loved one can get needed help in the event of an emergency.
Family Respite Care
Providing round-the-clock care for your loved one can become overwhelming and exhausting if you don’t give yourself a well-deserved break. FirstLight Home Care respite services will step in for you in the care of your loved one so you can take time for yourself to refresh and recharge. Your own health and well-being should also be a priority while you’re serving as the primary caregiver for your loved one.
