Industry Leading Homecare in Newton & Needham

FirstLight Home Care of West Suburban Boston provides non-medical home senior care to the residents of Needham, Newton, and surrounding communities, which conveniently covers everything from cooking, cleaning, and laundry, to individual needs which may include continence and toileting care, bathing and hygiene, assistance with eating, and mobility assistance. Our senior care services provide both short-term home care and long-term home care solutions 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Our professional homecare services are available to individuals of all ages, whenever and wherever they need it. This will include seniors requiring additional assistance to remain inside their homes, care for the chronically ill, families whose members have special needs or disabilities, individuals recovering from sickness or surgery, families with deployed military personnel and new moms. We even serve individuals who simply need someone to chat with enhancing their social lives.

What Are the Advantages of Home Care Versus Senior Care in a Facility?

Simply: freedom. Physically, homecare is superior because it allows for seniors to remain active much longer. These individuals can maintain their own schedules and keep a specific level of mobility. Emotionally the benefits are grand as well because many seniors who are place inside a nursing home commonly develop depression which negatively impacts their health and overall quality of life.

For some cases, our families have asked one of our Needham homecare caregivers to travel to a nursing home, assisted living facility, or retirement community to provide enhanced companion care and further assistance with tasks that may not be accomplished inside these institutions. These tasks include things similar to going to doctor’s appointments, running errands, or taking a visit to a favorite restaurant.
