Extraordinary People. Exceptional Care
Providing The Best In-Home Care, Companion Care & Senior Care
Some of the most important bonds in life are the ones we share with those who helped to raise us: our parents and other aging loved ones. At FirstLight, we recognize the significance of that bond and the fact that it means you are one of the people in the world who knows your elderly loved one the best. Thus, we include you in the process of developing and providing our senior care and companion care services available in Southgate, Brownstown, Allen Park, and surrounding communities. We actively listen and respond to your input, and prioritize your loved one’s own opinions as well. Both you and your loved one are an integral piece of the care services we provide.
Here at FirstLight, we understand that there are a variety of different services which seniors require, and for this reason, we offer many: ranging from help with mobility, continence / toileting care, and eating, to assisting the individual regarding bathing and hygiene. Additionally, we provide services which take care of such domestic needs as laundry, some cleaning, and even meal planning and cooking. We also know that schedules vary greatly, so we offer a range of care plan options, from short-term to long-term, year-round, and 24 hours a day.
Here are some of the ways that we can help:
What Are the Advantages of Home Care Versus Senior Care in a Facility?
One of the most important aspects of our daily lives is one we often take for granted: freedom. We recognize that when a senior can comfortably stay in their home because they are receiving the level of attention and specialized care that they need, that is an expression of their freedom. It’s critical to understand the emotional impact that having one’s freedom jeopardized has on our loved ones, and, unfortunately, seniors who are placed in nursing homes can experience negative emotional consequences. With senior care and companion care from FirstLight Home Care of Southgate, your elderly loved one will be allowed to maintain their independence while still receiving the care they need.
Additionally, there are some situations in which a caregiver is able provide companionship and help with some daily tasks outside of the home—such as in a retirement community, assisted living facility, or a nursing home. We can provide services to supplement those being met by the environment, including helping your loved one run simple errands, attend doctor appointments, or even take a recreational trip to one of their favorite local eateries.
