FirstLight is About People
Home Care is Not a Career, It’s a Calling
We know your first priority when choosing a home care provider is finding someone you can trust and rely on… someone who will care for your loved one as you would, and as we would our own. We’ve been where you are, and this is one of the main reasons we chose to be in this business.
Rick and Sarah Thomsen, Owners
Rick has spent 20 years in the healthcare industry. He held various positions in Sales, Management, Long Term Care, and Hospital and Office Reimbursement with an industry leading pharmaceutical company. The majority of time was spent in the Alzheimers market and Long Term Care. Rick has worked with almost every nursing home and hospital in the state of Mississippi along with many assisted living facilities. While working with these facilities, he learned of the need for exceptional in-home care. With the aging population of baby-boomers wanting to remain in-home and independent for as long as possible, we are committed to meeting this growing need and taking the opportunity to educate the Pine Belt community about the options available to them.
Sarah has spent 21 years as a teacher and has a Masters Degree in Education from the University of Southern Mississippi. Her most recent work was with the Petal School District. She has dedicated herself to caring for others in all stages of life.
FirstLight Home Care was the obvious choice because of the dedication to client satisfaction and focus on their “Culture of Care”. FirstLight Home Care also has an unparalleled screening and training process for caregivers. Rick and Sarah have spent the last year getting to know the people of FirstLight. We have a mutual passion for caring for the happiness and wellness of the senior and disabled population of the Pine Belt.
