Helping People through Home Care in the Communities of
Needham, Newton, and Surrounding Cities and Towns
At FirstLight Home Care of West Suburban Boston, we provide innovative home care services for Needham, Newton, and surrounding communities. Our quality caregiving solutions are perfect for the elderly, mothers with a newborn baby or anyone needing help with daily tasks at home. Our talented caregivers offer quality companion and personal care solutions for you or your loved ones, giving you peace-of-mind knowing that the help you need is there. We accept Long Term Care Insurance (including the assignment of benefits) to help families provide exceptional care for their loved one.
To get a sense of the compassion of our exceptional, employee caregivers, please read the Boston Globe story or watch the TV news report of how Amanda found a cat for her 76 year-old Client, Rosemary.
