Extraordinary People. Exceptional Care
Providing The Best In-Home Care, Elderly Care & Senior Care
We know that you are the one who best knows your parent or elderly loved one, so when you trust us to help you provide senior care, we greatly value your concerns and recommendations. Our goal is the same as yours: to help your loved one enjoy independence and the best quality of life for as long as possible. We understand that change can be challenging at first. So, we enthusiastically take the time to get to know your loved one, so they feel comfortable with us, and our caregiving role in their life. We also keep you informed and involved for your peace-of-mind. We want you to relax as we care for your loved one in the loving way that you would care for them yourself.
Here are some of the ways that we can help:
At FirstLight Home Care of Silicon Valley, we provide the communities of Los Altos, Palo Alto, Cupertino, Saratoga, and Monte Sereno with non-medical, in-home care and senior care assistance services, ranging from household duties (e.g., cooking, cleaning, laundry) to integral daily needs (e.g., bathing, hygiene, continence and toileting care), mobility assistance, and support with eating. We are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide a range of short-term and long-term home care, senior care, and respite care services.
Our Los Altos, Palo Alto, Cupertino, Saratoga, and Monte Sereno home care and senior care assistance services are available to adults of all ages, wherever and whenever they may need a little extra support. We care for seniors that may need additional assistance so they can continue living in their homes. We also support elderly individuals with chronic illnesses, family members with special needs or disabilities, loved ones recovering from an illness or surgery, an expecting or new mom, and relatives of deployed military personnel. We also offer a friendly companion so that your loved one may simply have a friend they can talk to and bond with for emotional and social support.
What Are the Advantages of Home Care Versus Senior Care in a Facility?
The most important advantage is: freedom. Physically, in-home and senior care assistance in Los Altos, Palo Alto, Cupertino, Saratoga, and Monte Sereno enables seniors to remain active and independent for longer. They can maintain their own schedules, preferences, and a certain level of mobility. There are also emotional advantages as some seniors who are moved into nursing homes develop depression that can negatively impact their health and quality of life.
In some cases, families have asked a FirstLight caregiver to visit a nursing home, assisted living facility, or retirement community to provide additional companion care and assistance with tasks that these facilities may not adequately provide. Such services may include running errands, accompanying a loved one to a doctor’s appointments, taking a trip together, or enjoying a meal at a favorite restaurant.
FirstLight Home Care of Silicon Valley serves the communities of Los Altos, Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Stanford, Monte Sereno, Cupertino, Belmont, Mountain View, Sunnyvale, Woodside, San Jose, Saratoga, Los Gatos and Campbell with home and senior care assistance services.
