Companion Care Services
Keeping You Independent
FirstLight Home Care of West Bend is here to offer professional companion care for all your at home care needs in Mequon and Germantown. Our services are available for in-home care, hospital care, and within a senior care facility. Our caregivers are available for occasional companion care, 24-hour home care and assistance, or regularly scheduled weekly visits. Our goal is to meet and exceed your caregiving needs.
Regular Visits, Conversation, and Company
Sometimes our West Bend, Mequon and Germantown companion and at home care services are really about doing anything around the house or providing assistance. Sometimes all your loved one needs is regular conversation and visits from someone just to spend time with. Living alone can be tough and being able to look forward to a regular visit from a friend for conversation and good times can really enhance your loved one’s mood and quality of life.
While our home caregivers are not medical professionals and cannot administer medications, they are available to provide regular reminders and make sure your loved one is taking their medications when needed. Talk to us about our special medical dispensers and various home healthcare tools to make life at home easier.
Maintaining a healthy diet and meeting basic nutritional needs can often be a problem for seniors living on their own as meal preparation for one person and the cleanup that follows is often more than they want to do on a daily basis. FirstLight of West Bend caregivers are experts at cooking nutritious meals and making sure your loved one is getting the nutrients they need for good health and having food to take medications with. In addition, our caregivers provide a friendly face and good conversation while sharing a meal. And no need to worry about dirty dishes! Our caregivers take care of all the clean up as well!
A clean home is a happy home, but at FirstLight, we know not everyone has the energy or ability to regularly clean the house. Our home caregivers take pride in helping your loved one maintain a clean and tidy home, performing duties such as vacuuming, dusting, dishes, bathroom sanitizing, and trash collection and removal. Our West Bend, Mequon and Germantown companion and at home care services allow your loved one to enjoy their day and their clean home without having to lift a finger.
Doing weekly laundry can be an extremely physical chore that not all clients have the energy for. Our home caregivers can come in on a regular schedule and wash, dry, fold, iron, and put away clothing, as well as make sure bed linens and towels are clean and fresh on a regular basis.
Shopping, Errands, and Transportation
Living an independent life at home requires regular trips to the grocery store, pharmacy, or other regular outings that not all seniors or loved ones have the energy for. FirstLight companions can provide regular shopping and errand services, ensuring that your loved one has everything they need, even if it requires a trip to a special store. For clients that still enjoy a day out shopping, our caregivers can provide transportation and a companion while they shop, ensuring their well-being while out on the town.
Recreational activities are a part of life that everyone should enjoy, be it outings to a sports event, bingo night, a walking group, or a simple game of cards with a friend. With our ClientFirst program, we take great care to match your loved one’s interests with our caregivers so that they have a companion that enjoys similar interests. Their happiness is our priority.
Mail and Paperwork Organization
Managing bills, mail and paperwork can be difficult and time-consuming for anyone, so our home care companions are able to help and assist with things like opening and reading mail at the request of the client, helping to organize and keep track of important paperwork, and assist with other tasks as needed.
In some cases, family members feel more comfortable with a live-in caregiver that is available in the home as needed. Whether temporary live-in services after a surgery or on a more permanent basis, FirstLight can make special arrangements to have a caregiver reside in the home, providing quality care around the clock.

You can feel confident and at peace knowing that we are here to assist and care for your loved one at all times.
Family Respite Care
Being a primary caregiver to a parent or other adult with special needs or disability can be a full-time job, often with little to no time for yourself. We at FirstLight understand just how difficult this can be and how easy it is to lose yourself when caring for a loved one. Our respite caregivers know the importance of taking time for yourself and are available anytime you need a break.
