FirstLight is About People
Home Care is Not a Career, It’s a Calling
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.
FirstLight Home Care of Sun City is owned and operated by local resident Linda Ford, who is passionate about providing members of the community with quality, trustworthy, in-home care services. Linda and her care team fondly serve residents throughout the Northwest Valley including Glendale, Peoria, Phoenix, Sun City, Sun City West, and Surprise.
Prior to opening FirstLight, Linda spent 21 years in the media industry, including eight years with USA TODAY where she excelled at setting and meeting the highest level of customer expectations. Her adventurous experiences, including crossing the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim in one day and participating in a Caribbean regatta, influenced her decision to leave the corporate world behind to start her own business. After her father and stepmother were involved in a severe rollover car accident leaving them in need of short-term 24-hour assistance, Linda realized her passion for helping those in similar situations. By opening FirstLight of Sun City, she can ensure that anyone in her shoes has somewhere to turn for top quality, compassionate, in-home care solutions.

Here’s what our Phoenix Area Home Care clients and their families have to say:
“Our daughter has been chronically ill for over two years and the medical team did not give her any hope for recovery. [We wanted] an in home companion to try to lift her spirits and get her on her feet. We had several very good choices but chose FirstLight Home Care, we liked their enthusiasm and attitude.
[Our daughter] is now walking. This has made such a difference in [her] life. The doctors are amazed at her recovery. We attribute a great deal of our daughter’s new lease on life to FirstLight’s great choice of a companion.
Also, our daughter has been in the hospital several times since our time with FirstLight. We have been so pleasantly surprised by the support of the entire FirstLight Team.”

“My mother was a dementia patient and the caregiver knew exactly what to do to help my mother.
“My mother was found on the floor one day and thanks to my caregiver she was saved and sent to the hospital. The owner sat with me in the waiting room while we waited for six hours for news of my mother. She didn’t charge me. She came on her own time!”
