Extraordinary People. Exceptional Care
Providing The Best In-Home Care, Elderly Care & Senior Care
When you decide to let FirstLight of Sunrise, Weston, and Pembroke Pines provide senior care and companion care for your parent or other elderly loved one, we recognize that you still are the one who knows them best. So we ask many questions of you and listen carefully to all of your input. We also talk directly with the older person, so that they can get familiar with us and be comfortable with the new, very personal role we will play in their life. You and we share the same goal of enabling our seniors to enjoy the most independence and the best quality of life possible for them in their unique circumstances. We pledge to keep you informed and involved on a regular basis so that you can rest assured your loved one is getting the care you want them to have.
Here are some of the ways that we can help:
We offer non-medical care in the senior’s home that may include household duties like cooking, cleaning and laundry, as well as more personal needs such as bathing and hygiene, toileting and incontinence care, mobility assistance, and help with eating. We provide both short-term and long-term home care that’s available around the clock, 365 days a year.
FirstLight of Sunrise, Weston, and Pembroke Pines provides senior care and companion care services to adults of all ages wherever and whenever they need it. Whether it’s seniors that need some assistance to stay in their homes, elders with chronic illnesses, people with special needs or disabilities, people recovering from illness or surgery, new moms, or families of deployed military personnel, we can be there for them. We can even provide companions for individuals at risk of isolation, who simply need someone to talk to for healthy social interaction in their daily lives.
Why Should You Choose Home Care Over Senior Care in a Facility?
The familiar comforts of home and the freedom for both seniors and visitors to come and go as they please are important to many families. In home care can be better for seniors’ physical health because it allows them to remain active in their own community longer. They can keep up their own schedules and get around to special events with help from family or friends. Staying in their own home is also better for seniors’ emotional health because it avoids the artificial life disruption of a move to a strange facility, which might result in confusion or even depression.
Nevertheless, upon request, FirstLight caregivers can report to a nursing home, assisted living facility, or retirement community to provide supplemental companionship care and assistance with non-medical tasks and desired activities not covered by such institutions. Running errands and accompanying seniors to doctor’s appointments or a favorite restaurant are popular examples of our companionship service.
