Mr. Roberts has extensive managerial and health care experience and has earned a MS in Education and an MBA. He started his carrier as a Medical Specialist (Combat Medic) in the U.S. Army, worked in Assisted Living Facilities and as an Insurance Physical Technician. He has held managerial positions at Delta Air Lines, CA Air National Guard and a local private college. The demands of the Air National Guard called him away from the private sector to complete several successful deployments to South East Asia. With the need for his services winding down in that part of the world Larry decided to return to his true passion of helping people.
The best way Mr. Roberts found to help people was to become a Certified Senior Advisor and to open a First Light Home Care franchise in the south bay. First Light Home Care of South Bay assists the local communities by providing in-home non-medical care to seniors or anyone over the age of eighteen. Their services include companion care, personal care, dementia care, veteran and surviving spouse assistance, case management, readmission rescue, financial consultations and referrals, appointment transportation and travel companionship, as well as, assisting with the aging process and caregiver education.

I have always tried to help people whenever I could, which is why I opened First Light Home Care in the South Bay. This CSA certification will let others know how serious I take senior care and the ethical standards I stand behind. according to Larry Roberts, CSA.

This demographic shift requires an educated response in how professionals work with seniors and a greater ability to address the challenges and opportunities seniors face. This explosion, unfortunately, is bringing along with it a significant increase of dementia.
