Here’s what our Fairfield County home care clients and their families have to say:

The Richards of FirstLight and the beautiful people, who have helped us under their employ, have been a Godsend to me and mom. From day one, they came to see.  On day two they had help with us. Their caregivers are so loving and attentive that we feel they are nearly family.”
