Hoffman Estates, IL
We’d like to give a special thanks to our caregivers. Without your dedication & compassion, we wouldn’t be where we are today.


“I was extremely apprehensive about hiring a care-giver service for my parents. My previous experience with a local agency proved to be a bad one and a costly one! Once again, I needed to find additional care for my parents and due to what happened before I did not want to go through another bad experience. This time I was very lucky- I would say very blessed! I thank god every day that I called “FirstLight Home Care” and spoke with Ms. Katarina Garbowicz, the Agency Director. She put my mind at ease and worked with me to assign caregivers that would best fit my parents needs.

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.

With much gratitude and appreciation, thank you; Kristina, Liz, Hanna, Jhoselin, Marisol, Idanis, Briana, Molly, Scarlet, and Katarina for all your kind and most important loving care that you give my parents. I know that thank you is not enough for all that you do, but know that your efforts and kind help is much appreciated and will not be forgotten!”

“Recently my wife had a major surgery and needed someone to be with her at home. I looked at a lot of possibilities, it was a hard decision for me to make. I chose FirstLight Home Care of Algonquin/Elgin. 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. She is extremely capable, professional and is thought of by us all as even more than a friend … she’s like family. Similarly, Jacquelin has not only provided great care for Mom, but is an excellent teacher as we’ve seen when she’s training newer caregivers that haven’t worked with Mom before. Also, and very importantly, we’ve never been left without qualified back-up on those rare occasions when a caregiver was on vacation, became unexpectedly ill, etc. Katarina, Cody and Glen always do their best and we truly appreciate it.

Thank you …

“Fantastic people from the start. Katarina and her father Glenn are just wonderful. The two girls they sent to my mom’s house are wonderful. My mom is so excited everyday and laughs and giggles like a young girl. She enjoys them immensely and is cooking for me, instead of me cooking for her !! I highly recommend this company and am very glad we went with them Thank you First Light !!”

“I have known the ownership of this company for about 35 years. Innovative, quality, highest standards of ethics and integrity- I am so proud that they chose this new venture for a tragically underserved public. Best wishes, and you will be the first I call when I need this service!”

“Thank you for taking such good care of my Mom during our most recent family event. The transport and care was set up with great professionalism. The care taker was very compassionate and competent. We will use your service when needed again. Thank you.”
