FirstLight is About People
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. At FirstLight Home Care, we work hard every day to provide uncompromising excellence in caring for our families. Exceptional care is what we do. This is why we do it.
As the President & Chief Relationship Officer for FirstLight Home Care of Woodbridge, Paul is responsible for the day to day administration of the agency and ensuring that FirstLight Home Care’s mission, core values, and Culture of Care drive all that we do. He spends his days building relationships in the community to help local healthcare providers, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, retirement communities, and others meet your needs with excellence in home care services.
Paul has over 25 years professional healthcare experience in the private sector and with the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, both as a provider and trusted leader. Over the years he has walked alongside thousands of families struggling with the challenges of maintaining their dignity and independence in the face of unexpected life events. He has seen firsthand the challenges families face when trying to find a trusted provider for their loved one, while balancing the demands of life. Paul is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the Commonwealth of Kentucky and Virginia. He completed undergraduate studies at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and received a Master’s of Science in Social Work and Master of Business Administration from the University of Louisville in Louisville, Kentucky.
While Paul is grateful for the opportunities he has had to serve others as a healthcare professional, it was his personal experience as the caregiver for his grandmother with Alzheimer’s Disease, and his mother who passed-away suddenly in 2012, that inspired Paul to build FirstLight Home Care in the Northern Virginia/DC Metro area.
“For years I struggled to find someone I could trust to help us. So many times I battled guilt over having to choose between the demands of life and quality care for my family. This is an impossible choice that no one should ever have to face. Ever. And at FirstLight Home Care you won’t have to. Your peace of mind is our calling.”
