Local Entrepreneur and Senior Care Advocate to Open New FirstLight Home Care Location

National non-medical home care provider announces plan to expand to Indian River County area

VERO BEACH, FL (July, 2018) – FirstLight Home Care, an award-winning provider of non-medical home care, has selected Vero Beach, Florida as one of its newest location. FirstLight Home Care of Vero Beach is scheduled to open in September and will be owned and operated by Senior Advocate Grayson Hausman. Mr. Hausman already operates a successful FirstLight location in Melbourne and was recently recognized among the nation’s best home care providers with a Best of Home Care® Provider of Choice Award.

The new FirstLight Home Care office will serve local families throughout Indian River County by providing non-medical home care services for older adults, as well as people with disabilities; those recovering from illness, injury or surgery; respite care; and anyone who may need assistance managing activities where they live. Non-medical home care is the fastest-growing healthcare segment, with 40 percent growth expected between now and 2020.

FirstLight Home Care of Indian River County will serve residents of Vero Beach, Fort Pierce, Port Saint Lucie, Sebastian, John’s Island, Indian River Shores, Orchid Island, North Beach Island, Tradition, and surrounding communities.

“Each day, 10,000 people in the United States turn 65 years old, and an estimated 90 percent of Seniors want to stay in their own homes as they age,” Hausman said. “As a provider in one of the nation’s most populated location for older adults and retirees, we’re proud to be able to bring the services people in our communities need to maintain their dignity and independence in their homes, enhance their quality of life and minimize the demands on family caregivers who would otherwise be their only source of support.”
