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.
Somers, N.Y., resident Vincent McMahon can attest to how hard work and perseverance pays off. Prior to opening FirstLight Home Care in Mount Kisco, the Ireland native had spent the past 15 years working his way up the Wall Street ladder, becoming a senior vice president with a financial firm at the young age of 34. Although Vincent had a successful career under his belt, the long days and grueling commute required by his job was no longer something he could live with.
Wanting to find a career that not only allowed him to spend more time with his family but to also make a positive impact on the local community, Vincent left his Wall Street position behind. His first-hand experiences with providing care for his own aging grandparents when they lived with his family in Ireland, along with many neighbors and friends in the community, led him to the thriving in-home care industry and he found FirstLight Home Care to be a great fit.
As the economy forces people to consider and weigh all of the long-term care options available, Vincent intends to become a valuable resource for the elderly and others who might require assistance throughout the community. He’s looking forward to becoming a leader in non-medical care for the residents in Westchester County.
Looking for a career opportunity with more meaning, April Dabrowski was drawn to the role of FirstLight care coordinator. As a care giver for her grandmother who suffered from Alzheimer’s, April knows the challenges families face when taking care of elderly family members. Her family experience, combined with her time as a FirstLight caregiver, puts her in the unique position to relate to both caregivers and the families they serve. Now, April uses her extensive organizational and planning skills developed by coordinating global events for some of the world’s largest companies, to ensure care is delivered according to FirstLight’s Culture of Care.
Working in training, public relations and event planning, April has built her career on helping others succeed and put their best foot forward. She has a bachelor’s degree from New York State University and a master’s degree from Irish Academy of Public Relations.
