Lighthouse Homecare – We want to be there for you

Interestingly enough, I recently read reports that up to 75 percent of the hospitals re-admissions are potentially preventable. Utilizing the services of a private duty, licensed home care agency is a way to bridge the gap during the transitional period of recovery and provide the services that address, and typically can prevent, the most common reasons for hospital re-admission.

We, at Lighthouse Homecare, will provide you quality home care services that can assist you with follow-up services. Our services are very reasonable, and we can coordinate your services to provide quality and necessary care to help you with full recovery and prevent re-admittance.

We can start by meeting you at the hospital or rehabilitation center. We can provide safe transportation home for you, your equipment and belongings. Other ways we can help will include preparing meals, monitoring medication, picking up supplies, groceries and even prescriptions.

When it comes to assisting you with daily living, we can build a service around both your budget and your needs. The last thing you want is to end up back in the hospital, when it can be possibly prevented by having the proper care.

At Lighthouse Homecare, we have a nurse on staff, and we are licensed in both Iowa and Illinois. In Illinois, we have both a nursing services license and a home services license. Our staff is trained to give you the benefit of companionship, helping with chores and much, much more. Yes, we can even take you to and from appointments. I recently answered the phone for one of our lovely customers, and she was very kind about the service we have given her. To this, I want to thank you publicly in this article. It is a true pleasure to serve you!

Often times, people are timid and scared to have someone come into their home. Yes, it’s probably like that first time you jumped into the hot tub. Well, it’s really warm and feels great. So, please give us a call. We would like to be your home care of choice. We have plenty of references and offer many
payment options.

I also would like to point out, in addition to traditional home care, we have short-term services that can help you, as well. For example, if you have a hip operation coming up, we can help there, too! Don’t rely on that family friend and/or neighbor. Let them come visit and enjoy you, while we do all the work for you.

Whatever your story, we want to help. Please give us a call at (309) 786-9982 and simply ask!
