Glenn Garbowicz, CSA Certified Senior Advisor®, Katarina Garbowicz, Certified Dementia Practitioner, and Kody Garbowicz are a two-generation family team who started this business after dealing with a number of caregiver issues with Glenn’s mother who suffered from a variety of medical problems including Alzheimer’s disease. They decided to build an agency where the caregiver receives a high degree of support and training. Moreover, Katarina is trained in Ageless Grace, a brain health program for seniors looking to enhance their quality of life.

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. These are a few examples of what our clients have said about our care:

“Every caregiver is the utmost professional, but most importantly, each is outstanding with the care they give each of my parents. Each shows my father and mother kindness, respect, care, and love. My parents have grown to care for each one and view each care-giver as family. If you are in need of a good home-care service do NOT hesitate to call Katarina at FirstLight- you will NOT be disappointed.”

“I talked with Katarina Garbowicz the agency Director/Owner. Katarina was the nicest and most understanding person you could ask for. The personnel from her company were fantastic. I would not hesitate to use Katarina and her company again if needed.”

“We want to thank everyone at First Light for all the great care you have and are providing for our Mom. Mom’s primary weekday caregiver, Navi, is simply wonderful.
