Providing The Best In-Home Care, Elderly Care & Senior Care
Everybody values their independence and your parents or elderly loved ones are no different. When your parent or elderly loved one reaches a point in their life where they need assistance with everyday living, the common options are caregiving or senior care facilities. In many senior care facilities, your loved one will lose a part of their independence that they treasure, but becoming a caregiver yourself is not always an option. Here at FirstLight of West Bend, we understand your concerns, your love for your family member and your desire to give them the best quality of life, while still letting them enjoy their independence. Our supportive home care and senior care assistance services in West Bend, Mequon and Germantown put you and your loved ones needs as our top priority. We take the time to get to know your loved one and make sure they are comfortable with our caregiving staff, while keeping you informed and involved in the caregiving process.
Here are some of the ways that we can help:
FirstLight of West Bend’s home and senior care assistance services in Mequon and Germantown provide non-medical in-home care with a personalized and caring touch. Our compassionate and professional staff provides services such as household care, meal preparation, and laundry services. For those individuals with a need for more personal care, we aid with bathing and daily hygiene, toileting care and assistance, mobility assistance, and help with eating. If your loved one is very independent, we can provide simple home visits just to check in and spend some time socializing, including outings and other social events.
Our supportive home care and senior care assistance services in West Bend, Mequon and Germantown are not limited to seniors, but rather to adults of all ages and situations. Our goal is to provide care services that help every adult live their best life. If you are recovering from surgery and need some help around the house, our caregivers are available to help. New moms adjusting to life with a little one may feel overwhelmed and would love to have someone come in and help with the household chores, leaving them time to bond with their new bundle of joy. Our care services work for any situation, including family members with disabilities or special needs, assistance for military families with deployed personnel, homebound individuals with chronic medical conditions, and so much more. Our goal is to provide services that enhance a person’s quality of life and make life a little easier.
What Are the Advantages of Home Care Versus Senior Care in a Facility?
As mentioned, when it comes to in-home care versus being placed in a senior facility, the biggest advantage is individual freedom. Your loved one can wake up when they feel like it, can attend social events with friends as they come up, and can spend more time with family and friends on their own terms. In-home care assures their basic needs are cared for and they are living a healthy and happy life. This ability to hold on to independence helps to keep their emotional well-being positive, while many seniors that enter care homes develop some level of depression, leading to reduced quality of life.
If your family member is already living in a nursing home or senior care facility and you are worried about their emotional well-being, you can still benefit from FirstLight home and senior care assistance services in West Bend, Mequon and Germantown. Our caregivers are often asked to provide companionship to loved ones living inside care facilities. They can visit on a schedule you determine and provide services such as simple companionship, running errands, taking your loved one to doctor’s appointments, or even an evening out for dinner and a movie. The possibilities are endless, but our goal is always to provide your loved one with quality care and compassion.
