Hear From Our Customers

“Patti was a godsend. FirstLight sent her to me three days a week to care for my 101-year-old Mom who suffers from dementia and various other problems. She cooks, bakes, does the laundry, etc. Most importantly, Mom liked her as much as I did. She was very gentle and sweet with her.”
– Joan, McHenry

“From the moment of my first contact I was treated with compassion for not only my mother but myself. The entire team has been amazing and truly care for the patient and the family. They have anticipated things I didn’t even know we would need.”
– L Sutton

“The FirstLight team added years to my mother’s life. They provided outstanding care at a reasonable  price. I would recommend them to anyone in need of home care.”
– J Adams

“FirstLight Home Care provided care for my elderly parents for almost 3 years. As their needs grew and became more complex, FirstLight was there to help us every step of the way.  Their caregivers were kind and compassionate, giving us excellent care.”
– L Nidler

“FirstLight Home Care has restored my confidence in assisted personal home care. Sande, your immediate attention the first afternoon I called you in total tears (and I am sure I was difficult to understand) gave me such a sense of calm I was able to make it the remainder of the day, and following days, tear-free. You have always been very through, thoughtful and considerate. I am so grateful for FirstLight Home Care and anyone who is lucky enough to receive assistance from Carrie is truly blessed.”
