What Are the Advantages of Home Care Versus Senior Care in a Facility?
In-home care gives seniors the freedom to stay in the home that they usually have been in for years, while staying safe and well-cared for at the same time. It can be traumatic for an elderly person to move from everything they are familiar with to a nursing home, and many seniors become depressed after the move, and often decline in function and health shortly after. Staying in their own home provides comfort, routine, and keeps them active and independent longer.
If you have an elderly loved one who is already in a nursing home FirstLight Home Care can still provide care in certain situations. Companion care, accompanying to physician appointments, or taking them on outings are some examples of services that our caregivers can provide.

What is the Difference Between Home Care and Home Health Care?
Home care provides extra help and support in areas like bathing and dressing, mobility and transportation, medication reminders, housekeeping and meal preparation. It’s also designed to offer companionship, friendship and conversation. This is the kind of care FirstLight Home Care of Spokane and Coeur d’Alene provides to seniors and other adults.
Home health care, however, is delivered by a medical professional who will visit your loved one and monitor their health. They can change treatments and medications, prescribe new ones, create diet and exercise programs and oversee your loved one’s medical condition.
What is Non-Medical Care?
Non-medical care, which is the kind of care FirstLight Home Care of Spokane and Coeur d’Alene provides, is designed to give seniors and others the help they need to live more independently and fully. It includes personal care, companion care, dementia care, respite care and travel companion services.
What are the Advantages of Home Care vs. Senior Care in a Community?
If your senior loved one wants to remain at home, but needs help doing so safely, FirstLight Home Care of Spokane and Coeur d’Alene is here for you. Our senior care services enable individuals to remain in familiar surroundings, maintain their routine and live their best life, right at home.
However, if your family member requires care in a community setting, our caregivers are still available to help. We can step in and provide support in many ways, whether it’s simply sitting and chatting, running errands or providing transportation to medical appointments.
How Do I Get Started with Senior Care?
Contact FirstLight Home Care of Spokane and Coeur d’Alene, and we will schedule an in-home senior care consultation. We want to get to know your loved one and their needs, so we can identify the best services for them. This also helps us match them with the right caregiver.
