    We used FirstLight for about a year and a half for my mom. They were fantastic! We had very few issues and the ones we did have were addressed very quickly. The caregivers are professional. They took great care of my mom right up until … More the very end. I highly recommend them.

    Ruby is the best care-giver we could ask for. She caters to my mom's needs and desires effortlessly and happily. Just today she has mom outside, which is mom's favorite place to be, doing chair exercises, getting plenty of sunshine, … More sunscreen applied and a glass of water by her side. And, appropriately dressed for the mild weather. Aaaaaand this is just after serving mom a healthy breakfast, giving her a shower and throwing in a load of laundry. FirstLight delivers with skilled and caring CNAs like Ruby. We feel beyond grateful!

    Our relationship with FirstLight just recently started in May. From the first consultation we knew we had a great resource for assistance with my Dad and total peace of mind. Jennifer Hager has been his caregiver and Dad just adores her. … More Last week, upon her arrival, she found that my Dad had fallen in the early morning hours. She took action immediately calling 911 and FirstLight stayed in constant communication with me as I traveled to get to the hospital. Jennifer stayed and cleaned up, picked up, and had everything perfect for us. I can't begin to express how grateful I was to leave the hospital and come home, knowing that this was already taken care of. My family and I wish to express our sincere gratitude to Jennifer and the entire team at FirstLight. Amazing People! Kim

    I love working for First Light Home Care. I got the opportunity to go to CNA school with full support from the office. It's been such a positive experience. I've never been happier working for a company. Thank you so much Ken … More and Mary Ellen Fleming for giving me the opportunity to prove my worth.

    We used First Light Home Care for our mom. We really appreciated the people we worked with and the wonderful caretaker our mother had, Ruth Campbell. We always knew when Ruth was with mom that everything my mom needed was done. It was such … More a relief to finally have help outside of the family that you could depend on! Ken and Mary Ellen were also very helpful with answering our questions or helping us make changes that helped our mom. We are so thankful that a friend referred us to First Light. It was a wonderful experience for our family!

    They provide a priceless service, and we are ever grateful! Ken and Mary Ellen Fleming from First Light Home Care Charlotte were referred to us by a trusted friend. After very bad experiences with another provider & similar stories … More from others I was not optimistic. Now we know the comfort & safety of a competent team that is responsive, professional, caring and beyond all, compassionate to the concerns of a family in need. They have accommodated our requests with grace & ease. Our care companions, including Marian & Dezhia, couldn’t be more caring, kind, and personable. I rarely write reviews. This agency is truly exceptional!!

Client Reviews

they have been the epitome of care and kindness, and I will always be grateful to them for the support and care they extended to our family in our time of need.

They couldn’t be any better!

They are nice and caring toward my dad. Everything they do they go out of the way to help. They are great, and I would recommend them.

You have been angelically patient with me. I’ve never seen anything like it. You sent great people to care for me. You were always incredibly responsive and kind. You are amazing people. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything…The other day I was speaking to a gentleman who was gong to possibly need home care for his mother.

They are punctual, friendly, productive, and careful when driving me to appointments and errands.

All of the caregivers have been compassionate, kind, & engaging. FirstLight HomeCare is very personable and responsive. They are able to come out right away and provide the services you need.

FirstLight Home Care of Charlotte is an outstanding caring company who truly cares about each and every client they have. I am always impressed at the level of devotion they show to their clientele. Excellent employees and the compassion they have is truly refreshing.

We have had FirstLight Home Care of Charlotte providing services for my mom for about an year now. They came highly recommended by a friend of ours. I appreciate their dependability. As far as the owner goes, he’s been great with communicating to us. The caregiver is really good with my mom and in touch with her needs. My mother really enjoys her.

I am happy to give this recommendation with the hope that it will encourage others to find out for themselves just how special this company and their people are.

I was very impressed with the detailed care plan. Provider also brought care workers to the house to meet my mother before they began working in the house. The quality of the care giver was excellent. When I needed extra hours due to an accident on short notice the agency and care giver provided the hours of care.

We have been very pleased by FirstLight’s ability to provide caring and responsive service to our mom over the past 6 months. They have been quick to react if we have any concerns and have made every effort to ensure we are satisfied and happy with their response.

They have always tended to us with compassion and understanding. They were there when we leaned on them for many hours each week and they are with us now when we need to use them only for a few hours each week. I believe that FirstLight Home Care of Charlotte embraces their promise that “the genuine health & well-being of others is our greatest concern.

My mother is 82 years old and I love her dearly. We have used other agencies in the past to provide health care for her, and have been disappointed in the level of care and communication. Finding First Light Home Care was a blessing: her health care is now in very capable, very trustworthy hands.

When my 92-year-old mother-in-law required one-on-one monitoring the family could only cover 12 hours a day, I called FirstLight to provide companion care for the period of 8 PM to 8 AM and they began coverage the same day I called.

My wife was very ill and at the end-stage of her life. FirstLight Home Care of Charlotte provided us with a CNA in our home to care for my wife. The CNA was extremely competent and caring. Over time she became a member of our family. Just the way it should be. This company really cared about us as a family as witnessed by several visits from the company president.

FirstLight impressed me because they are concerned about what’s going on and what I need. They are reliable and you can count on them. I appreciate they are kind and nice to talk to, and I enjoy having them. They come to work looking neat.

The office staff reaches out; they make sure and ask for feedback. FirstLight HomeCare genuinely cares, and the caregivers do the tasks professionally.

Just a reminder that I called you to talk about how happy we are with Jessica. I think she is exceptionally qualified and a real hard worker with a sweet personality to boot. She is a gem!

FirstLight is proactive with communication and they check in with us to see how things are going. The caregivers are professional and show up in scrubs. I would tell a friend FirstLight HomeCare cares and follows through on what they say they will do.

I was made to feel very secure.

I wanted to thank you for the great care you & Jennifer have given to my dad. He has really enjoyed both of you. I am very pleased and impressed with your service.

They are punctual & reliable. They have met and at times exceeded our expectations.

FirstLight Home Care of Greater Charlotte has been extremely helpful in caring for my mother. Very compassionate service. Always doing what is best for their clients.

Your caregiver has given excellent service each time she has come.

The caregiver are friendly and reliable.

I appreciate their friendliness and caring. They are a good, friendly group of people .

They are nice and caring toward my dad. Everything they do they go out of the way to help. They are great, and I would recommend them.

Thank you for all you have done for us and our dad. We will recommend First Light to others. We again cannot tell you how much we appreciate your helping us during a difficult time. Your understanding of all of our circumstances and the patience you gave to us was wonderful. God bless you!

Keep up the good work!

I appreciate that they genuinely care.

They are very knowledgeable and the office staff always contacts me if there is an issue.

My son contacted and talked to Ken at FirstLight and was very impressed with the conversation. I accepted his comments, and they have been confirmed. I enjoy talking to Ken, Mary Ellen, and their staff. I am treated as a person and a friend. God bless this firm.

Thank you so much for providing such a beautiful lady to accompany my mother Ellon S. from Golden Living Nursing Home in Charlotte, N.C. to Riverpoint Crest Nursing Care Facility in New Bern, N.C. She was compassionate, helpful and very knowledgeable. She helped to make my mother’s trip a very comfortable one.

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.
