Senior Care in Woodbridge
Home Care Services for the Elderly
No one knows your loved one like you do. It’s why at FirstLight® Home Care of Woodbridge, we listen first. With our senior care, available in the Woodbridge, Virginia area, our goal is to provide help and support that is personalized. To do that, we’ll ask questions and get to know your loved one’s needs and preferences.
We’re then able to provide the right level of care that can help your loved one to continue living independently. We’ll also provide companionship and comfort, so they feel happier and enjoy life more. Along the way, we’ll keep you up-to-date, working together to care for your loved one.
Here are some of the ways that we can help:
What is the Difference Between Home Care and Home Healthcare?
Home care provides assistance with household chores like light housekeeping and meal preparation. It can also provide support to manage personal care needs, such as eating, bathing or dressing. At FirstLight Home Care of Woodbridge, we also provide companionship and conversation, so your loved one will never feel alone.
Home healthcare is different in that it provides medical care. This can be through a nurse or physical therapist. They’ll visit your loved one to prescribe medications, adjust treatments or create an exercise plan. Services are often short-term or less frequent than home care.
What is Non-Medical Care?
Non-medical care is another name for senior care. It encompasses all the activities of daily living and is essential for many seniors who want to continue living at home.
At FirstLight Home Care of Woodbridge, we offer non-medical services to seniors on a part-time or full-time basis. We can be there for your loved one 24 hours a day, overnight, on holidays and even through weekends.
We can also help adults with disabilities, those recovering from surgery or those with chronic illnesses. If you need a respite break, we can step in and provide care and support where and when you need it. We even offer a travel companion program for families planning a trip.
What are the Advantages of Home Care Versus Senior Care in a Facility?
When an individual can stay at home, they’ll have more freedom. They’re often happier keeping their regular routine and living at their own pace.
Sometimes, though, a nursing home or senior living community is the best place for an individual. When this happens, we can provide additional support. We’ll help your loved one run errands, offer support and companionship or even take them on a trip to a local restaurant. We’ll increase their quality of life with a compassionate touch.
