Providing The Best In-Home Care, Elderly Care & Senior Care
FirstLight understands that you know your elderly loved one or parent better than anyone else – so when you choose us to provide senior care for them, we welcome your input and knowledge. When it comes to senior care and companion care in San Antonio, Alamo Heights, and Helotes, we use your direction to provide the most personalized care possible. FirstLight shares your goal: help your loved one enjoy the highest quality of life. We want your loved one to enjoy independence for as long as possible, just like you. Our senior caregivers take the time to talk to your family member so they feel comfortable with our new roles in their life. We keep you informed and want you involved so that you can have peace-of-mind in knowing that he or she is receiving the quality of companion care that you would give.
Here are some of the ways that we can help:
What is Non-Medical Companion Care?
FirstLight provides in-home non-medical senior care that can cover anything from general housekeeping, cooking, and laundry to personal needs, such as bathing and hygiene, toileting care, and assistance eating. Whether you need short-term companion care or longer-term senior care, we provide our quality services 24 hours a day, all year round in San Antonio, Alamo Heights, Helotes, and surrounding communities.
We offer our quality in-home care service to adults of all ages, regardless of age or location, including; seniors requiring assistance to stay in their own homes, individual suffering from chronic illnesses, special needs adults, new mothers, and families with deployed military servicemen or women. Even if your loved one just needs companionship, FirstLight will be there to enhance their quality of life and emotional fulfillment.
What Are the Advantages of Home Care Versus Senior Care in a Facility?
First and foremost: freedom. In-home care is often better because it provides seniors the ability to remain active longer. Seniors can maintain their own schedule and a degree of physical freedom and mobility. In-home care is often more emotionally comfortable than senior care facilities. Seniors who reside in nursing homes often develop depression and anxiety, which can have an adverse impact on their health and overall quality of life.
FirstLight caregivers have been employed to seniors who do reside in a nursing home or retirement community. This is because we can provide added companionship and assistance that they may need and can’t receive directly through their facility. Often this includes things such as companionship and transportation to appointments, running personal errands or even going on outings to restaurants or shopping centers in San Antonio, Alamo Heights, Helotes, and surrounding areas.
Our care services are available throughout San Antonio, Alamo Heights, Helotes, Schertz, Universal City, Selma, Leon Valley, Leon Springs, Fair Oaks Ranch, Timberwood Park, Boerne, Converse, New Braunfels, Shavano Park, and Castle Hills.
