We’d like to give a special thanks to our caregivers. Without your dedication & compassion, we wouldn’t be where we are today.
“On May 11, I fell down my hallway stairs and hit my head into a wall that required five stiches and with that fall I also broke my right upper arm and my thumb on the right hand. For four months I was in a cast on my right upper arm that was on at all times including sleeping. I have been sleeping in a recliner all this time, so I wouldn’t roll over on it. After continuous ex rays over weeks the surgeon made the decision this would fix itself over a three to six-month time line and surgery wouldn’t be needed. I could not bathe or dress myself and for four months FirstLight HomeCare services were needed every day. I was lucky enough to receive from FirstLight the help and assistance for an hour a day. Please share this testimonial with anyone at any time and if someone would like to call me and ask personally I would be happy to share my utmost satisfaction with the professionalism I was managed with and the personal care these ladies used helping me in my time of need.” Donald P.
“Janice Bayruns, owner of FirstLight Home Care, is the best. We found our selves in need of help with my grandfather (who has Alzheimer’s) when my grandmother broke her hip – I literally mean the next day! He needed help bathing, meals prepared, etc. and Janice and her team were amazing. She met with us and paired him with one of the gentleman on her team according to personalities. We were able to focus on my grandmother’s needs during surgery with peace of mind knowing he was being taken care of with great skill and compassion. She even gave us tips with other resources in the community to help us. There is heart in what they do and I would absolutely recommend Janice!” Heather H.
I highly recommend FirstLight HomeCare. Janice Bayruns and her team really do care. My grandmother was living alone at 92 and started having difficulty caring for herself. I had never dealt with this type of situation before and had no idea where to begin. My grandmother lived in Ft. Lauderdale also, which complicated things a bit. My first call was to Janice. She took the time to listen and share her experience and wealth of knowledge with me, as well as provide resources that I could contact in South FL. My Poppy passed away last month so she is at rest now, but I will be forever greatful to Janice for her willingness to help my grandmother and my family.” – Lisa K.
“I have been using FirstLight Home Care for many months to help lighten the heavy load I carry while taking care of my dad with dementia. At first, it was just light housekeeping and laundry, then it became help by talking to my dad and spending time with him. I wish I wouldn’t have waited so long to contract their services, but I sure am glad I finally did! If you are a caregiver, or just busy and need help I highly recommend FirstLight!” – Stacy
“My Mother in Law Patricia suffers from advance Alzheimer’s disease and she recently had to be admitted to the hospital. My wife was frantic as she knew her mother could not be left alone, yet with a large family she knew she couldn’t stay in the hospital all day with her. We contacted FirtstLight Home Care, and they promptly returned our call and sent staffing to be with Patricia. All the staff were courteous, friendly and professional and it took a great burden off my wife. We were very happy with the services provided and highly recommend them!” -Dr. B
“I met with Marchelle today re frustrations of giving care to my domestic partner Bod who is 84 and has been diagnosed with Alz. I am 66 and struggling with outbursts and all the other issues caregivers go through. She was so helpful and listed and responded to all my issues. She gave me so much information and resources that I left feeling like I will survive. I am 8 months out from radiation for uterine cancer and still going for checkups every three months and I know how important staying positive is for my recovery. I was struggling with being positive. I am now feeling I have the resources and help if needed to get through this.
I just wanted to thank you for providing help in many ways and for hiring helpful caring and positive people like Marchelle.” – Debbie B.
“I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of the countless hours, worries, laughter and tears you have spent taking care of my mom, Elizabeth Anderson. Her Alzheimer’s has progressed to the point that the doctor and I feel that she needs to go to assisted living at Superior Residences at Brandon, Florida. I know you have met Jill Andres, the director there. She was a former neighbor of mine and I feel that my mom will get great care there.
Please pass this letter around to all who have been there for my mom. I think the world of you. Thanks again to Janice, Marchelle, Lynn, Pattie and Mary Theresa. Your job helping others in need is a wonderful profession. I salute you and will miss all of you.” – Cindy S.
“I am very excited to write this letter of recommendation for FirtstLight Home Care. As an administrator in assisted living, I understand the many demands of the industry and importance of aligning with high quality partners.

FirtstLight excels as a private home care service who can work with your community to provide resident focused care in conjunction with your staff. There are many choices but consider giving FirstLight an opportunity to show you the benefits, professionalism and higher standards that set them above the rest.
Should you have any further questions on the service history we have experienced, please d not hesitate to call.” – Michelle O.
“I have known the owner, Janice Bayruns for close to 15 years. I was privileged to be her father’s attorney. I was how we cared for him when she would bring him into the office to handle legal business. I know the things that concerned her, always wanting to understand the best way to manage his affairs. Janice has an incredible breadth of knowledge and compassion with all of her clients at FirtstLight. Janice is one in a million”
