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.
Meet our Owner
This is Christine and her dad. He had recovered from his recent health episode and insisted on going home. She knew he couldn’t manage it on his own. This was not their first roundtrip from home to ER to rehab to home.
So there she was, again, trying to balance it all: caring for an aging father who simply wanted to be home, caring for young children, and maintaining a career she loved as a CMO in the financial services sector.
Homecare was her best compromise. The challenge was finding one that worked for them.
Her father has since passed, but the experience still lingered. This is why she decided to pivot her career and launch a home care agency—dedicated to helping families keep loved ones safe while respecting their desire to be home to age with pride and dignity.
With over 25 years of marketing high-end financial services to the mainline and globally, Christine brings a high-touch, detailed approach to managing and operating FirstLight Home Care of the Mainline.
