We also offer non-medical in-home services covering everything from household duties – cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc. – to more personal needs such as bathing, hygiene, continence and toileting care, mobility assistance, and assistance with eating. Both our short-term and long-term senior care and companion care is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to clients throughout San Diego and La Jolla.
Our home care services are available to people of all ages who need a little assistance at home for any number of reasons. These senior care and companion care services in San Diego and La Jolla include caregiving and assistance for elderly or chronically ill, new mothers, those healing from illness or surgery, those with special needs or disabilities, and families of deployed military personnel. We even offer companionship services for people that just need the company and conversation to make their day-to-day a little better and brighter.
What Are the Advantages of Home Care Versus Senior Care in a Facility?
The primary advantage of home care can be summed up in one word: freedom. In providing care in the comfort of your loved one’s own home, they are able to maintain their own schedule, priorities, and a great level of mobility.
Physically and emotionally, home care is often upheld as the more positive alternative to a nursing home – where developing depression or losing quality of life is a risk, given the lack of attentive, individualized care. Home care allows seniors to remain active longer, maintaining their day-to-day.
If your loved one is already residing in a nursing home, assisted living facility, or retirement community, know that our FirstLight caregivers offer companion care and assistance in these facilities as well, where certain needs or desires might not be met. Such needs might include running errands, making doctor’s appointments, attending a local show, or strolling the shopping plaza. Whatever company or assistance your loved one needs, we can provide.
