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.

FirstLight Home Care of Maine is owned and operated by husband and wife team Peter Gartland and Carol Larkin.

We left private industry management positions and chose to develop this in-home care company based on our 15+ years of personal caregiving to our elder parents. Because of our own first-hand experience with elder care, we know the issues, questions and challenges facing individuals who assume the caregiver role.

When we became caregivers of our elderly parents, we realized there was an acute need:

  1. For a service to assist caregivers, like ourselves, with the sometimes complex array of service provider decisions.
  2. To offer a more cost-effective option to alternative residential care.
  3. To provide families with a viable option for allowing elders to remain living in their own home.
  4. To provide peace of mind to those caring for a loved one.

We have experienced your issues, and, as home care providers, are here to offer you a helping hand.

We invite you to call us for more information at 207-627-1125 to discuss your in-home care needs and concerns. Our caregivers can be found from Windham to North Conway, NH, the Lewiston/Auburn area, Norway, S. Paris to Yarmouth, Cumberland and many more towns. Here is our comprehensive Coverage area – 2018 in which we provide service.
