We offer complete companion and personal care services for seniors, new mothers, those recovering from surgery, or anyone who just needs a little assistance. And with our trusted, highly-trained caregivers and additional, innovative services, you’ll have even greater peace-of-mind.
We also offer concerned and reliable caregiving and respite care services. We not only provide full caregiving solutions, but the intangible necessities such as spiritual and emotional support as well. We understand that life transitions can be physically, mentally & emotionally draining, and that is what we are here for. We offer in-home, 24/7 care so that you can spend time with your loved one as a family member, and not a caretaker. The main goal is to ensure your loved one maintains the highest quality of life possible.
We know your first priority when choosing a home care provider is finding someone you can trust and rely on… someone who will care for your loved one as you would, and as we would our own. We’ve been where you are, and this is one of the main reasons we chose to be in this business.
When someone you love can’t take care of themselves like they used to, a million different things run through your mind. You worry about their health and safety: their quality of life. You might wonder if you’ll be able to balance taking care of them while taking care of yourself and your own family. You wonder if they’ll be able to stay at home, but if they do, then what? You want to be there for them like they’ve been there for you, but how can you be sure of what to do?
We can help by providing the best home care. We’ll work with you to create a caregiving partnership that’s built on trust, communication, and a special understanding of your family’s needs. And what’s more, we give you everything you need to monitor the quality of home care we provide. Our goal is to ensure your loved one’s quality of life so you have the peace of mind and confidence to enjoy yours. At FirstLight Home Care, we provide in-home care for your loved ones wherever their home may be – in a nursing home, assisted living facility, retirement home, or their own home.
Why FirstLight Home Care of Buffalo was Founded
Perry Ciambella, owner, was living with and helping care for both of his parents. He learned that in the US, more people now take time off from work to care for parents than for children. He found that Caregivers often don’t know where to turn and get burdened with that cloud of uncertainty about how long and whether they can handle care. At least three things contribute to that uncertainty:
1. When caring for parents one must plan for giving increasing amounts of time as opposed to when caring for children one can count on increasing independence. Most caregivers are happy to sacrifice for their parents/spouses because they properly love and honor them. However, they are torn because their lives are busy with careers, caring for others, and other commitments that do not recede, as care needs increase.
2. Besides, the health care situation in this country threatens the weak and infirm. Hospitals are often pressured to release or not admit patients who just a few years ago could be well cared for there. Moreover, even those admitted to facilities of all sorts often find understaffing so that one needs a constant advocate to speak up for the needs of the sick. All this puts a greater burden on caregivers, when they are already busier than ever.
3. Perhaps the area of greatest concern is how to cost effectively get help. Everyone has heard of, or experienced firsthand someone who has turned over a significant amount of wealth to a skilled nursing facility, assisted living center or the like.
FirstLight has a better way. Now, with the latest technology and a culture of care that is based on extraordinary people, exceptional care, FirstLight can provide help for caregivers while maintaining independence and safety in your own home, all in flexible and very cost effective solutions that are custom fit to your needs.
We are happy to help and serve you, to lessen your burden and assist you in the loving care of your loved ones. The Mission of FirsLight is to Love and serve the least of our brothers and sisters in response to Christ’s instruction in Matthew 25:31.
