McHenry, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/09/2016 -- The recent collaboration of FirstLight HomeCare of McHenry County and McHenry Villa senior living community is making a tremendous difference in the lives of seniors living in the community. FirstLight HomeCare now has caregivers onsite 24 hours a day, seven days a week within McHenry Villa, providing home care services that allow residents to enjoy a higher quality of life in their independent living community.
"McHenry Villa provides seniors with a wonderful home where they can enjoy the benefits of independent living without worrying about having to maintain their own home," said Sande Sherman, the owner of FirstLight HomeCare. "Eventually, as their needs increase, our services help them age in place, postposing a difficult moving decision."
During visits, the caregiver works with residents to provide a varying array of services which could include: tidying the apartment, dressing, wellness checks, assisting with personal care, medication reminders and much more. The services that FirstLight HomeCare provides to the residents gives the family members peace of mind knowing they are getting added assistance when they aren't able to be there.
"The goal is to enhance the quality of life for those who have situations that create a need for a helping hand in order to stay independent, whether recovering from surgery or illness or a myriad of other factors and to give family members assurance that their loved ones are getting the care they need" said Sherman.
Kay Reissig, the Marketing Director of McHenry Villa states, "We provide a stress free environment where residents can enjoy delicious meals, weekly housekeeping, 24-hour staff, emergency response, social outings, activities, lively entertainment as well as health and wellness clinics and programs. By partnering with FirstLight HomeCare, we're able to provide even more services. This is a wonderful addition for the benefit of our residents."
While those services are available on an ala carte basis, FirstLight HomeCare also provides packages. And because they are now on-site and have 24-hour staffing at McHenry Villa, located at 3516 West Waukegan Road, McHenry, FirstLight HomeCare is able to offer these services at a savings to the residents.
