Client Reviews

BEYOND EXCELLENT, QUICK TO RESPOND and INCREDIBLE TO WORK WITH! In 25 years this will be the first review I have done. The reason for my review today is because during these incredibly challenging times of finding immediate and quality caregivers who can also work with Covid patients.

Jim and Cherryleen were extremely fast and responsive when signing on for their services. Our residential facility is grateful for the caregivers they sent. They were extremely communicative when addressing our needs and super easy to work with. Highly recommended!

It was my pleasure to use First Light homecare as a caregiver during January and part of February. My caregiver, Shannon, was a delight. Their brochure describes the services they provide, & she did them all. After a few days, she knew what & when to do most everything, including what I liked for lunch. Should I need a caregiver in the future, First Light will be the company I call.

At a time when I needed help the most FirstLight was there for my family. My mother was very ill with COVID in an assisted living facility that did not have the capacity for 24/7 caregiving. Jim and Sue came through with qualified, loving and caring caregivers. They are always quick to respond, very flexible with ever changing schedules and understanding when a particular caregiver wasn’t a good match.

Our family has had the privilege of working with FirstLight Home Care for the last 18 months – The professionalism and personal care the team has provided, not only for my Mother (who suffers from Lewy Body Dementia), but also to my elderly Father (who is in the home with his wife, and who has his own special age-related needs).

One of the best things to come into our lives was FirstLight Home Care. When our loved one became terminally I’ll she was living alone and needed around the clock care. Thank goodness FirstLight Home Care was there for us. We live in Southern California and our loved one lived in Redwood City. Jim, Esther and the care givers not only took care of our loved one but they also took care of us.

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.

We are caregivers.
