Veterans Caregiving Memorial Day FirstLight

Memorial Day and Caring for Veterans

This upcoming Monday is Memorial Day in the United States and FirstLight Home Care caregivers are proud to offer our thanks for the millions of veterans that have served our country proudly in conflicts across the globe.

As the number of United States Veterans continues to grow, the caregivers at FirstLight Home Care are honored to be the choice for a growing number of Veterans and their families. From members of the Greatest Generation who are challenged by advancing age to recently returned Veterans who are returning from combat in Afghanistan and Iraq, the “culture of care” that is in everything we do enables our caregivers to treat our nation’s Veterans with all of the respect and dignity that they have earned and deserved.
