Companion Care Services
Keeping You Independent
FirstLight Home Care offers companion care services, 24-hour home care, home caregiving services for individuals recovering from surgery, and much more. Our companion care services can be offered in the home, in the hospital, or even in some healthcare facilities as a way of providing a reliable individual companion who is trustworthy and will be there for your loved one to help in many ways!
Regular Visits, Conversation, and Company
Companionship plays a major role in positive outlook and quality of life. FirstLight at home and companion caregivers in Salem, Keizer, Silverton and surrounding areas share conversation and meals with your loved one and offer companionship, and something for them to look forward to!
While our caregivers are unable to administer medicines to our clients, they are able to issue reminders to take medications as well as monitor ongoing issues, side effects, or health concerns.
For some seniors or individuals with disabilities, it can be incredibly difficult or even somewhat dangerous to prepare meals on their own. This can mean lots of fast food or other convenience meals lacking nutrition. Our at home and companion caregivers in Salem, Keizer, Silverton and the nearby area can provide daily healthy meals that increase the quality of life for your loved one and provide nutrition, plus there’s no need to worry about cleaning up after- our caregivers have that covered!
Can’t seem to keep up on housework? FirstLight Home Care wants to help, with caregivers who provide vacuuming, organization and tidying, dusting, trash removal, and light cleaning services to help your loved one maintain a happy and healthy environment.
Washing, drying, folding, and putting away clothing, linens, and towels can be exhausting and require a great deal of exertion, which may be too much for some seniors. FirstLight caregivers can take care of this for your loved ones and prevent them from becoming too tired or overexerting themselves.
Shopping, Errands, and Transportation
Basic needs and errands such as shopping for groceries, picking up prescriptions, or getting clothes dry cleaned can seem like insurmountable tasks to people with limited mobility. FirstLight caregivers can shop on your loved one’s behalf, or can provide transportation and companionship for clients who prefer to run errands themselves.
Through the ClientFirst matching system, caregivers and clients are matched up based on shared interests and activities, so that your loved one can enjoy favorite activities such as bingo, nature classes, or live music in the company of someone who enjoys those activities too!
Mail and Paperwork Organization
Clients can choose to include caregivers in their bookkeeping needs, to assist in opening and reading mail, organizing paperwork, keeping track of bills, and minimizing clutter.
For some clients and families, it may be necessary to create special arrangements on a temporary or permanent basis to provide live-in health care where the caregiver actually resides in the home. Contact FirstLight Home Care for more details.
24-Hour Home Care
FirstLight is proud to use top of the line, high quality personal emergency response devices and web-based care monitoring. This means that with technological support, FirstLight caregivers provide peace of mind through 24/7 access to remote care with the Client Care Access tool.
