I found FirstLight Home Care to be such an amazing help and resource when I was caring for my former husband who had Alzheimer’s with Aphasia. They went above and beyond in their care for him and a great source of information for me. He could get combative at times and they knew just how to handle him. They were all caring individuals. I also can’t say enough about Steve and his wife, Jen.

Steve, We want to express our deepest thanks for all you and your caregivers gave to my mom in her final days.

You gave up your Labor Day to make sure my mom had someone there to care for her.

“I would definitely recommend FirstLight Home Care. The caregiver I have volunteers for work. You can ask her anything, and she is right there. She has alot of initiative. The biggest advantage is being able to stay in your own home. From the time that I started using FirstLight, I’ve actually been able to use my walker less! I feel that I truly am getting better, even if it is slowly.

FirstLight Home Care has been a real plus. The staff is excellent, and they do a great job following up. Their communication is excellent and we couldn’t be happier. Their care givers have been very pleasant and my mother really likes them. She has enjoyed the attention and they take excellent care of her. By having FirstLight Home Care’s staff visiting, she has a better quality of life, even on her bad days. She loves it.

My family is very thankful for the exceptional job Steve and Jennifer did for our Mother who was diagnosed with Dementia. FirstLight Home Care provided us with a perfectly matched helper to provide hands-on support. They did an excellent job in follow-up, knowledge and support of Dementia, and becoming a part of our family. We sincerly appreciate everything they did to promote a positive outcome for our Mother.

FirstLight helped my wife until she had to go into memory care at our assisted living community. We could not have been more pleased with the service. The girls were neat, on-time, pleasant to have around, and most helpful!

With the exception of FirstLight Home Care, not one of the other companies offered or suggested to me a Free In-Home visit to assess my needs at my residence. Steve Rattner asked when I was available to meet with him as he would review his program in full. I meet with Mr. Rattner later that day and he instantly won me over with his attitude that I am here to serve you, and took the time to answer all of my questions.

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.
