Client Reviews

I can’t say enough about FirstLight! They have provided in-home services for both of my parents, a few years ago for my mother and most recently for my father. Indeed, they stepped in quite expeditiously when it became clear that my father was in urgent need of in-home care. Moreover, it is always a pleasure corresponding with Wendy, Elise and everyone on the FirstLight team!

FirstLight Home Care provided services for my mom while she was staying with my sister and brother in law, and I am so grateful for the service they provided. The caregivers were reliable, and helpful and the office staff was friendly and always responsive. The caregivers motivated my mom to walk and helped her with her physical therapy exercises. Thank you FirstLight for taking great care of my mom!

My experience with First Light has been first rate! Wendy and the administrative team are excellent and provide prompt service and follow up. They were thoughtful in matching the right caretaker with my mother. Her caretaker, Dee, is extremely helpful, flexible and accommodating. We are very pleased we chose First Light for our Home Health Care needs.

FirstLight Home Care is the agency to call if you are looking for caring, compassionate care. In addition to the quality of care, FirstLight offers excellent communication and support, which is so important as you navigate through the difficult path of caring for your family member.

Caring, reliable, concerned, experienced — we could not be happier with the service FirstLight has provided our family. They listen and treat each case individually so they can match the right caregiver to the specific need.

I think FirstLight is a great company and they really care about their families, clients and caregivers. I appreciate everything they do.

Dependable! Never question their abilities! I’ve had peace of mind ever since I chose them.

Helpful and cooperative with dedicated employees who do their best to care for their clients.

We are caregivers.
